Automated 3D scanning is possible with the Breuckmann stereoSCAN, in conjunction with AICON 3D Systems' coordinate measuring machine DPA.
According to Breuckmann, measuring fields ranging from a few millimeters up to one meter can be configured and accomplished swiftly. The combination of the two systems with the object specific reference setup, a robot and a turntable allows for fully automated, high-precision digitization and inspection of very large-scale measuring objects, enabling the data to be quickly evaluated and available for further processing.
The settings required for the automatic component measurements are specified once only; subsequent measurements can be repeated as often as needed while maintaining the same level of quality. Surface data as well as hole pattern data and cut out data are captured at a high degree of density and accuracy, the company says.
In addition to automated quality inspection, the highly precise measuring processes can also be employed to create a digital components archive. This, for example, enables digitized prototypes and their respective inspection reports to be readily available as reference material for optimization and production, the company says.
