Industrial 3D Scanner With Blue Light Technology
ATOS is metrology tested, aerospace certified accurate, and widely recognized as the preferred measuring tool.
The ATOS series of high quality industrial structured blue light 3D scanners provide precision scans with detailed resolution at high speeds. ATOS is a type of a coordinate measuring machine CMM that utilizes optical non-contact technology to capture millions of accurate points in a single fast scan.
There are different names for this technology, such as, an optical measuring machine, optical 3D scanner, white light 3D scanner, blue light laser scanner, non-contact 3D scanner, etc. ATOS is engineered with advanced hardware and intelligent software for repeatable accurate measurements with flexibility and process reliability.
The ATOS generation of industrial 3D scanners is the most innovative optical measuring system for 3D coordinate measurement on the market. It is widely utilized in various industries, and can measure different object sizes, surface finishes, and shape complexities.
The science behind the technology.
In simplest terms, based on the principles of triangulation, the projector projects a fringe pattern across the part’s surface and as the patterns rapidly shift during each scan, the two cameras capture the distortion to calculate the 3D coordinate measurements.
In a comparison to a traditional coordinate measuring machine (CMM), which takes a single measurement at each programmed point where the probe contacts the surface of the part, or an industrial 3D laser scanner that gathers measurement in strips or lines of data, ATOS is an optical non-contact measuring system that captures full-field scans of a volumetric area collecting millions of points per scan.
ATOS setup is minimal and each measurement can take less than 1 second. It does not require specialized programming skills or highly accurate fixtures. ATOS discovers discreet problematic areas that would have been undetected by traditional measurement methods by quickly scanning the entire object (part, mold, tool, die, etc.) in an accurate and dense point cloud.
This digital 3D blue print of the object’s geometry is then compared to CAD with a 3D inspection color map displaying a spectrum of colors that signify areas in and/or out of tolerance.
As the saying goes, “A picture is worth 1,000 words.” The 3D color map takes the uncertainty away so the optimal corrective action can be applied eliminating iterations and saving an enormous amount of costs and time that were once being spent on rework.
