The CALIPRI profile measurement device developed by NextSense uses three laser lines for the scanning of profiles. The company says this allows for the swiveling of the measurement device and enables measurements from different perspectives, and also, the fold edges of sheet-metal body parts that form gaps can be analysed.

Whether it is hand-held or installed on a robot arm – CALIPRI can be moved freely over the component and combines the segments recorded by the laser into a complete profile. The measurement result is free from mathematical extrapolations and delivers a greater level of accuracy than alternative methods, claims the company.
