At IMTS 2012, Hexagon Metrology Inc. will feature its new Cognitens WLS400A for automated measurement applications.
The Cognitens WLS400A 3D optical measurement solution can transform a robot into a high-accuracy metrology device. Ideal for the motor vehicle or aerospace industries, the white light based system is used to accurately measure large components, analyze early root causes of potential assembly issues, and lower scrap costs during assembly ramp-up. The manual version of the system, the Cognitens WLS400M can also be utilized for rapid prototype part development, and used to certify holding fixtures and assembly tools.
The WLS400A uses digital stereo vision technology to generate highly accurate 3D data in vibration-prone shop floor environments. Due to the systemís ultra-fast data acquisition rate (less than 10 milliseconds), any vibration in frequencies up to hundreds of Hz do not affect the results. The device's performance is not impaired by variable lighting or temperature changes, making it a robust troubleshooting tool for complex engineering issues during product development or for automated measurement tasks. The 3D measurement solution can also be used to standardize quality criteria across global production facilities and with suppliers
