Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH (headquartered in Neubeuern/Germany), the worldwide leading provider of optical measuring and sensor technology, will be presenting smart sensors for 3D digitizing as the centerpiece of their exhibit at Control 2015 (hall 5 stand 5304). "The COMET 6 16M sensor we are presenting is the flagship of fringe projection sensors. The modular sensor, with its new projection unit characterized by extremely bright LED technology and an innovative projection lens, provides an entirely new outlook on 3D digitization", reports Hans Weigert, Head of Sales/Marketing at Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH. "The end-to-end T-SCAN laser scanner and tracking solutions, for their part,…
Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH, the worldwide leading provider of optic measuring and sensor technology, will be presenting the STEINBICHLER T-SCAN CS hand-guided laser scanner that can now be mounted on a robot at Control. “This makes it possible to use the system for automated measurements both on and off the production line,” said Carsten Gericke, Business Development/OEM, Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH. “The challenges in quality assurance of many manufacturers increase while processing times and production cycles are simultaneously reduced. In order to meet these challenges, Steinbichler Optotechnik with its partner Metrologic Group now offer the STEINBICHLER T-SCAN CS high-precision laser technology as…
The bright minds from the Steinbichler COMET development team – metrology specialists for user-oriented product development and optimization The high-end 3D sensor COMET 6 16M from Steinbichler, features the so-called 3D-ILC (Intelligent Light Control) technology. With this innovative and intelligent projection method, data acquisition on objects with varying or highly reflective surfaces has now been optimized and improved, which opens up an entirely new spectrum for 3d digitizing applications.Conventional projection technologies often meet their limits when highly reflective object surfaces are digitized, which would cause excessive outshining or undercut effects of the fringe pattern in the camera image and to…

Sweet solution with 3D scanning technology

Chocolate mould manufacturer DPS Designs reduces cycle times and increases quality following the introduction of 3D scanning technology from ZEISS Optotechnik. SYSTEM / APPLICATION COMET LƎDFIELD Thermoform and Confectionery Injection Mould Toolmakers CUSTOMER DPS Designs Ltd. TASK DPS Designs, a Gloucestershire-based supplier of moulds for the chocolate industry in the United Kingdom, had been reviewing its processes and looking towards moving to ‘digital engineering’ of its designs and the inspection of mould tools. At the time, a foam model would be manufactured from sketches and once approved by the customer, it would be drawn in 3D CAD to replicate the…

Intelligent 3D digitization

Fringe projection systems have become a well-accepted measurement tool in industrial metrology, as they are capable of generating large numbers of points in just a short time, in contrast to tactile methods. The limits of these systems are still tested, however, when different areas of the surface to be digitized exhibit stark differences in reflexive properties, and as a result, the dynamic range detected by the camera is no longer adequate. The COMET 6 sensor from Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH takes a new approach in this regard by automatically adapting the amount of light projected based on the local reflexive properties…

Reverse Engineering at MOLIFREZA

Quick and easy 3D scanning service and reverse engineering with the COMET LƎD.  SYSTEM / APPLICATION  COMET LƎD FIELD  Manufacturing CUSTOMER  MOLIFREZA - PRESTAÇÃO DE SERV. DE MOLDES, UNIP., LDA TASK  MOLIFREZA - PRESTAÇÃO DE SERV. DE MOLDES, UNIP., LDA, a manufacturer of metal molds in Portugal, needed to reconstruct damaged mold tools which have reached the end of their life expectancy. Without the existence of a CAD file, this process was time consuming and was having a dramatic effect upon production. The ideal solution was to use 3D Scanning as the first step in the reverse engineering process. STEINBICHLER…
