International premier of new 3D scanner - SMARTTECH3D CobotScan
Recently, SMARTTECH3D has introduced a new solution to its offer, that integrates an ultra-small 3D scanning head with a cobot -SMARTTECH3D CobotScan. The possibility of creating measurement plans by manually indicating and saving scanning positions allows you to fully use its capabilities without the need to know the arm programming process. Thanks to this, process automation is user-friendly and available to every user. The demonstration of the new 3D scanner gathered great interest among visitors during premiere shows at Germany's Formnext fair, in the USA at the Quality Show, and in Thailand during the Metalex exhibition.
New 3D scanner - SMARTTECH3D CobotScan is a versatile scanning solution, created to be integrated with collaborative robots (cobots) or to be used as a standalone solution.
SMARTTECH3D CobotScan is an automated solution meant for obtaining precise documentation of all the smallest details. The 3D scanner is dedicated tool for industrial use with an emphasis on quality control, which is based on comparing scan data to its reference CAD model.
Integration with cobot allows full automatization of the measuring process and eliminates the need for positioning markers usage, which significantly increases the efficiency. Cobining the solution with a SMARTTECH3D rotary stage, further optimises 3d scanning process and allows automated alignment of data collected from different directions.
The SMARTTECH3Dmeasure software is used to guide user through scanning process and provides useful tools for quality control, such as generating a color map of deviation or cross-section creation. Moreover, the software allows automated creation of ready to print PDF quality reports according to template needed by end user for go/no go analysiis or other reporting needs.
The SMARTTECH3D CobotScan follows the VDI / VDE 2634 standard, providing proof of the amazingly high accuracy of 18 micrometers. The modern, light housing guarantees the user work safety and stability of the system. High miniaturization enables implementation of the most advanced technology in a highly mobile housing, with its dimensions being 175 mm x 228 mm x 56mm. By using world-class quality stereo system cameras, SMARTTEH3D CobotScan provides very detailed, accurate 3D models, at the same time assuring high measuring speed of 5 000 000 points per second.
The bundle offered by SMARTTECH3D comes with all the equipment necessary to connect the scanner with any cobotic arm, calibrate it, as well as perform the measurement or comparison process.
