Put simply, RoboScanner is the world’s fastest, portable robotic scanner. A new breed of scanner for non-contact measuring and inspection. While previous industrial robots were large, heavy, stationary, and expensive, RoboScanner is lightweight, fully automated, and comes with proprietary integrated software for easy programming and instant 3D analysis. In addition, the scanner offers notable performance advantages in speed, accuracy, and ease of use.
Features and Benefits
The RoboScanner offers outstanding accuracy, as high as +/- .002” or +/- 0.050mm. The resolution can be as fine as .0005” or .012 mm.
The RoboScanner uses a high resolution digital blue-light scanning system and can capture over 500,000 points in less than 0.2 seconds. Multiple scans are automatically registered seamlessly and the resulting file compared to a nominal CAD model to receive an instant go/no-go decision.
The RoboScanner is fully automatic, thus reducing manpower requirements. By eliminating the expense of a full-time technician’s salary along with ancillary expenses, the RoboScanner provides significant cost savings. The scanner works far faster than a human being without requiring any breaks. The one thing you don’t get with the RoboScanner? Downtime.
The RoboScanner utilizes 6 axes along with an optional turntable for 7 full axes of movement. All of these axes can be controlled to ensure smooth and fast movement around all of the points to be measured, even on difficult-to-measure horizontal geometry.
Weighing only 50 pounds and being touch-sensitive, the RoboScanner avoids the need for the safety cage required by larger, stationary, high-force robots.
The scanner’s integrated RoboScan software was designed for easy programming. The software can capture scan positions manually or with a simple click of the mouse on the screen. The system then moves automatically to the next scan position. RoboScan software also detects path interference in real time to avoid potential collisions. All travel paths are logged and can be cut and pasted into script files just like using a word processor.
Ideal for measuring soft or delicate materials such as foam, cloth or rubber.
