3-D SCANNING AND QUALITY CONTROL SYSTEM Convince 2011 3-D scanning and quality control system has a choice of three scanners and two software packages. The standard software provides generic 3-D scanning and creation of digital models for use in digitization or production processes and supports basic quality control and measurement. Premium software includes full support for measuring without a reference model using self-defined virtual geometries and the ability to define multiple coordinate systems. The D500 1. 3 MP scanner is for general 3-D applications; the Q700 1.3 MP mid-market level scanner is designed with a balance between accuracy and speed; and the Q800 is a high-resolution scanner with 5.0 MP cameras.3SHAPE A/S | +45 7027 2620 | WWW.3SHAPE.COM OPTICAL COORDINATE MEASURING SYSTEM The MaxSHOT 3D optical coordinate measuring system adds the accuracy and speed of photogrammetric to the wide range of applications already possible with the company's technologies, particularly when it comes to larger parts. It combines the MaxSHOT 3D photogrammetric video camera and the Vxshot processing software. CREAFORM | (418) 833-4446 | WWW.CREAFORM3D.COM MOBILE SURFACE METROLOGY The MarSurf M 400 has proprietary motorized probe height adjustment, which automatically zeros the probe in seconds and can cut measurement time in half. The unit also has a magnetic, breakaway probe mounting system, which protects sensitive probes from accidental damage and facilitates fast probe changes. The unit measures all common international parameters and has Bluetooth connectivity between the measuring system and the evaluation unit with integrated thermal printer. MAHR FEDERAL INC. | (800) 343-2050 | WWW.MAHR.COM LASER TRACKER The Radian laser tracker comes with the Innovo technology platform, which features on-board intelligence that brings increased confidence to the operator. I-Vision is an advanced beam capture technology that has a 30-degree field of view. Not only does it lock on to the target, but it follows the operator even if the beam is broken. It quickly reacquires the beam and allows the operator to continue to make measurements. Capture and store streaming video and still images for traceability and training purposes. AUTOMATED PRECISION INC.(800) 537-2720 WWW.APISENSOR.COM FIBER PROBE The fiber probe can be as small as 20 micrometers in diameter to measure inside of small features such as tiny holes and slots. The self-illuminated sphere is positioned via CNC positioning into the hole and slightly deflected on the workpiece. The sphere is mounted exactly in the focal plane of the optics and its deflected position is measured optically, allowing accurate and repeatable measurements to be made nondestructively inside tiny features on a production basis. Calculations of cylindricity, taper, perpendicularity and vector angles of holes are possible. WERTH INC.(860) 399-2445 WWW.WERTHINC.COM SPC SYSTEM Wonderware's QI Analyst 8.0 software provides a complete SPC software system, combining statistical techniques and real-time communications to shop-floor systems and data source openness that empowers every operations team member. The software gives manufacturers the ability to monitor process variation in real time, which is an important indicator of product quality. Using SPC analysis techniques, operators can make immediate online adjustments that proactively ensure production quality and consistency. In addition, the software can leverage historical data from most data sources, helping to transform common process data into actionable process information. INVENSYS OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT(469) 365-6400 IOM.INVENSYS.COM TACHOMETERS The D-Series of industrial tachometer generators offers high-reliability support for a variety of instrument-grade velocity sensing applications where high output voltages (45 VDC/1,000 RPM) are required. Combining high-accuracy with low driving torque, the tachometers provide a means of converting rotational speed into an isolated analog voltage signal suitable for remote indication and feedback control. The D-Series has low-rippled output, for which the ripple RMS value will not exceed less than 3% of the DC value at any speeds in excess of 40 RPM on standard units. Linearity at any speed is better than 0.1% of the total output at that RPM.SERVO-TEK PRODUCTS INC.(800) 527-5646 WWW.SERVOTEK.COM COLOR RECOGNITION The different versions of the colorSensor OT series enable reliable color recognition even on shiny and reflective or structured surfaces. The measuring ranges of the new series typically cover 2 to 800 millimeters, while the switching frequency is 30/35 kilohertz. Eight white-light LEDs, whose brightness can be controlled as required, are used as illuminants for the diffuse illumination. The sensors are insensitive to external light and have a true color detector, which filters RBG values in a similar way to the human eye. MICRO-EPSILON ELTROTEC GMBH +49 (0) 7161 98872 300 WWW.ELTROTEC.COM MAGNETIC TAPE ENCODERS The HDMag line of high-precision, bearingless and contact-free magnetic tape encoders directly mount onto almost any largeshaft torque motor or generator. Using HDMag MSGP sensor technology, the series consists of a magnetic encoder attached using flexible magnetic tape. With the help of the welded fastener, the tape is tightened on the shaft and can be quickly exchanged when required. The narrow read-head incorporates an integrated dual sensor head that is mounted to a frame over the flexible tape. This takes up minimal space on the shaft and operates without interruption over the fastening gap in the tape ends, and has no effect on the encoder output signal. BAUMER LTD. (800) 937-9336 WWW.BAUMER.COM AUTOMATED PART-TO-CAD VERIFICATION The CAD Auto-Align and Auto Pass/Fail software tools allow users to compare a part to its CAD data in real-time automatically. The Auto-Align tool automatically aligns the CAD data to the part. The tool typically takes less than 2 seconds to produce its result. The Auto-Align tool produces repeatable and accurate results that are completely operator-independent. The Auto-Align tool supports both X-Y and X-Y rotation alignment of the CAD drawing to the part. VISIONX INC.(514) 694-9290 WWW.VISIONXINC.COM LASER SCANNER FOR 3-D DOCUMENTATION Focus3D, with a new multisensor hardware feature, incorporates a compass and height sensor to complement the device's existing dual-axis compensator. The sensors define height and orientation against a set point for each scan, improving the automatic registration process and reducing post-processing work. Operators can perform and download scans remotely with the WLAN remote control. The device also can be equipped with one of three application-specific adaptors that allow the unit to be mounted to any fixed post or used in mobile or super-fast tunnel scanning applications. FARO TECHNOLOGIES INC.(800) 736-0234 WWW.FARO.COM DEW POINT METER The PosiTector DPM D ew Point Meter measures and records climatic conditions including relative humidity, air temperature, surface temperature, dew point temperature, and the difference between surface and dew point temperatures.
