NEUBEUERN, Germany, Nov. 2, 2011 — Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH is launching the Comet 5 Eco sensor for high-precision 3-D digitization. The modular construction makes it easily and quickly adaptable to various measuring field sizes and enables individual configuration for specific measuring tasks.
The sensor is designed to meet the increasing demands of industrial product development and quality assurance. Combining efficiency with user comfort, it features higher measuring speed than its predecessor, Comet 5. Data acquisition times for digitization tasks are six times shorter with the CometPlus software, and the measuring speed is four times faster. The speed is an advantage in measuring in a vibration-prone industrial environment. The use of the latest computer hardware and software technologies also enables fast postprocessing of the measured data.
The projection technology developed for the Comet 5, combined with tested one-camera technology, guarantees a high acquisition speed as well as good data quality. The system is suitable for use in production-related quality assurance. The sensor operates over a wide temperature range and features high stability, which is crucial for automated measurement tasks, enabling easy adaptation to an industrial robot without acceleration forces influencing the measuring precision. Thanks to its robust construction, it is well-suited to mobile use and can be positioned on various handling systems.
It can be used in quality control/inspection as well as in work tool and mold construction, design, rapid manufacturing, reverse engineering and 3-D scanning. It is supplied as a complete package that includes Inspectplus inspection software, a column stand, corresponding computer hardware and three-day training. The new version of the software offers CAD interfaces for all standard CAD systems, including Catia V4/V5, Pro/E, Unigraphics, SolidWorks and XT Parasolid, as well as standard exchange formats such as IGES, VDA-FS, STEP and JtOpen.
