COBHAM, England, June 14, 2016 — Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has announced the BLAZE 600M, a noncontact optical measurement solution for rapid 3D data acquisition, high accuracy and actionable data for measurement, inspection, product development, line tuning and reverse engineering. With minimal preparation, the system performs feature and surface measurements of parts and assemblies in various sizes with detail and precision. The scanner combines high-resolution digital imaging with blue light LED illumination and does not require surface treatment of metallic, plastic and composite parts. The system is not sensitive to industrial and ambient light sources or indirect daylight. Designed for operation in industrial environments, vibration due to heavy machinery processes has a negligible impact on measurement results due to the scanner's fast data capture rate.
