Gom at the AMB 2018 3D Scanning, Probing, Tracking with a Single Mobile System
With the Atos Compact Scan, Gom offers a low-cost entry into mobile 3D metrology. Thanks to its scalable measuring area, integrated scanning, and tracking function, the optical 3D scanner adapts to the respective task, the company said.
The mobile 3D scanner Atos Compact Scan from Gom is ideally suited for the full-surface on-site digitization of components, tools, and systems in the production area.
The scanning system, including tripod stand, rotation table and other accessories, can be stored in a compact case which can be easily transported to the measuring object, explains Gom. This allows data to be recorded during production — for example of the production line. On-site measurement eliminates costs for transports to the measuring room, accelerates error detection and thus optimizes production and machine parameters.
12-Megapixel Resolution Increases Degree of Detail
The Atos Compact Scan delivers precise and trackable 3D surface data even in disturbing ambient light, the company continues. Thanks to its integrated evaluation software, it also provides easily evaluated geometric information — for target/actual comparisons, shape and position analyses, for instance. The surface geometries are captured by fringe projection method with the scanner's stereo camera system, Gom informs. Depending on the size of the object, the user can change the volume of the measuring area with exchangeable lenses and set up the system according to the individual measuring task. For applications that require a particularly high data density, Gom is now offering the compact scanner with a resolution of 12 (instead of the usual 5) megapixels. This higher resolution visualizes surface structures and patterns in a very detailed manner.
Real-Time Measurement of Motion Sequences
To capture hidden measuring points, such as drill holes, deep pockets or object areas in confined spaces, the optically tracked Gom probe can also be used. In addition, the Atos Compact Scan can be used to capture movements and deviations in real time (so-called live tracking), Gom explains. In this way, components can be positioned exactly where the CAD data has placed them, emphasizes the manufacturer.
