Laser Scanning with Portable Arm and Fixed CMMs
We are pleased to be able to offer a range of the latest, high performance laser scanning systems for both fixed CMMs and Portable Arm CMM from two leading global manufacturers – Perceptron and the Nikon range of scanners for portable arm CMMs through our new Partner RPS Metrology.
Laser Scanning for Measurement
Laser scanning systems for both portable arm and fixed CMM applications are now allowing users to collect highly repeatable and accurate 3D point cloud data of components and products far more accurately and efficiently than ever before – making 3D scanning now a legitimate means with which to collect data and conduct real 3D CAD comparisons in metrology and reverse engineering applications.
This new development is bringing full 3D measurement and reporting to 3D CAD models into the 21st Century and allows users to be able to accurately measure, record and report full 3D deviations from the nominal CAD math data for the first time to their customers.
Scanners for Portable Arm CMMs
Currently we have access to the Perceptron range of portable arm canners as well as some of the range from Nikon for our portable arm CMMs from RPS Metrology and we will be adding more scanner products in the near future.
We are also pleased to announce that a new low-cost scanner is also available for the six-axes Master3DGage which will sell for around US$10,000 and this will allow new users as well as owners of the exiting generation Master3DGage products to perform laser scanning for measurement or reverse engineering tasks.
Scanners for CMMs
With the growing importance of inspecting three-dimensional parts on CMMs, particularly non-prismatic parts, the emergence of the laser scanning capabilities for CMMs has been steadily growing in importance. First noticed in Europe 5 years ago and more recently in the US, Australian and New Zealand is now starting to adopt the use of laser scanning technology driven by a DCC CMM for the measurement of complex components – particularly in the aerospace sector but now in a growing sense in other sectors as well such as in medical products and research applications.
