CogniTens, part of the Hexagon Metrology group and a leading provider of 3D optical measurement solutions, has announced the launch of a European demo centre for its fully-automated 3D measurement system, OptiCell.

OptiCell is a measurement system designed to support off-line recurring parts and assemblies measurements in the production fl oor environment. OptiCell provides the rapid, reliable and comprehensive 3D measurement results required for quality iterations during tryout, production ramp up, quality assurance and dimensional process control. OptiCell-generated inspection reports provide comprehensive information on surface deviations, assembly feature locations, edges and other dimensions of interest.

Automotive OEMs and suppliers such as GM, Magna, VW, Ogihara, Honda and Hirotec use OptiCell to automate 3D measurements of sheet metal parts and closure assemblies.
