PLYMOUTH, Mich., April 6, 2015 — Perceptron Autoscan Collaborate-CMMPerceptron Inc. has announced the Autoscan series of laser-based industrial metrology products for shop-floor, automated 3-D scanning and dimensional measurement.

The Autoscan Collaborate-CMM (pictured) and Collaborate-Gage are based on the company’s Helix microelectromechanical (MEMS) smart sensor, Vector analysis software and Collaborative Robot technology.

The Collaborative Robot is designed to allow direct interaction with a production operator within a shared collaborative workspace, where robot and operator can perform tasks simultaneously during manufacturing operations. Traditional robot safety fences are not necessary.

Each robot position is learned by manually dragging the robot to the next required component scan position. All robot moves are automatically written to the part inspection program, allowing subsequent parts to be inspected automatically. Autoscan captures a 3-D digital representation of the part and reports complex form and surface deviations relative to the part CAD model, along with discrete information for critical features such as holes, slots and studs.

Users can program up to 200 scan lines per feature, with scan line intervals as small as 0.1 mm. Automatic feature extraction from the generated point-cloud data allows multiple features to be inspected with the robot in a static mode.
