Nikon Metrology’s HN-6060 next-generation, non-contact inspection system features advanced laser scanning, a five-axis synchronized hardware control, a stiff design and powerful processing software. It is designed to inspect complex shapes such as gear teeth, turbine blades, appliance housings, complex automotive components, molded parts, medical devices and more.
According to the company, the system provides fast, accurate 3D inspection by combining optical technology with high-precision measurement hardware. The laser scanning sensor extracts the surface form and waviness data in one scan.
The metrology system’s laser scanner and shape from focus (SFF) sensor use active texture projection to measure shapes, even those with glossy surfaces or no surface texture. Touch probes and optical heads with built-in TTL laser AF complete the multi-sensor system.
The five-axis synchronized hardware control optimizes part orientation to the sensor and measures the part from different angles. The software is said to seamlessly integrate with the measurement hardware and is designed for user operability and safety. It features macro-based teach in, simulation for collision avoidance, acquisition of point clouds from 2D and 3D shapes, and part-to-CAD comparison.
