ZEISS COMET 8M and ZEISS T-SCAN 20 round off mobile portfolio with higher resolution and larger measuring volume

ZEISS is releasing two new, advanced measuring systems that will bridge the gap between the basic and premium segments and thus round off its portfolio of optical measuring machines. The 3D sensor ZEISS COMET 8M and the 3D scanning system made up of the ZEISS T-TRACK 20 tracking unit and the ZEISS T-SCAN 20 handheld laser scanner will both come on the market.

The new compact 3D sensor ZEISS COMET 8M is equipped with an 8-megapixel camera and is therefore the new, high-res version of the ZEISS COMET LƎD 2. Its high resolution and accuracy mean this fringe light projector will bridge the gap to the premium product, the ZEISS COMET Pro AE.

“We’re using this new resolution to tap into the application fields of turbine blades and consumer electronics,” explains Markus Eßer, Head of ZEISS Optotechnik. After all, to check whether these complex precision parts are in line with the prescribed tolerances, the data captured using the sensor has to be highly precise. In order to complete the different measuring tasks perfectly, users can opt for one of many lenses – and switching measuring fields is still so easy. The ZEISS COMET 8M offers a host of benefits besides: the 3D sensor is easy to transport, construct and calibrate. People are always impressed with the system’s ease of use.

In order to offer one-stop solutions that meet all customer requirements, ZEISS has also developed a mid-range segment for its modular laser scanner systems.As the name suggests, the ZEISS T-TRACK 20 laser scanner tracking unit has a measuring volume of 20 m3: in this field it can detect the scanner and touch probe that belong to the system. In this way, it bridges the gap between the ZEISS T-TRACK CS+ with a measuring volume of 6 m3 and the ZEISS T-TRACK LV with 35 m3 – and it’s the same size, too. The ZEISS T-SCAN 20 handheld laser scanner is perfectly matched to the tracking system and thus ensures a no-hassle measuring process. 

“The new system was completely revamped – and we now rely exclusively on products from the ZEISS Group. After all, we have the skills for optics and cameras in-house,” says Eßer. These technical enhancements enable as yet unmatched precision at 40 µm + (40 µm x L / 1,000) micrometers that is achieved across the measuring volume and is verifiable as per DIN EN ISO 10360. This standard demonstrates the performance of a coordinate measuring machine – and makes both types of measuring system comparable. The ZEISS T-SCAN 20 enables greater mobility – including for at-line measurements.

“The new systems deliver spotless data at the high speed users have come to expect. We’ve managed to triple the measuring volume and drastically reduce measurement uncertainty,” says Eßer. Accessories that have already been purchased, such as stands, are compatible with the new system.
