Metrology System Combines Contact, Non-Contact Functions with Simpler Software

Perceptron’s CNC multi-sensor Expert CMM system is designed to seamlessly integrate touch-probe and laser scanning functionality into a single measuring station, operated exclusively by touch software.

Perceptron’s CNC multi-sensor Expert CMM system is designed to seamlessly integrate touch-probe and laser scanning functionality into a single measuring station, operated exclusively by touch software. It is equipped with the company’s TouchDMIS software which includes a TouchCloud add-on module.

The CMM offers full point-cloud geometric feature extraction and direct comparison to CAD models for automated inspection of production parts. By extraction from point cloud rather than rendered STL format, the CMM is said to provide faster, more accurate measurements.

Part features can be touch-probed or laser-scanned depending on feature type and tolerance. The system’s ScanR scanner is available with a standard red laser line and optionally with a green laser to extend dynamic range, thereby enabling scanning of both highly reflective and black parts. Expert CMM can also be supplied with any size and configuration CMM from the company’s Coord3 range or retrofitted to existing CMMs.
