Hexagon Metrology has launched the Cognitens WLS400 and WLS400A white light sensors for portable and automated 3D measurement. White light measurement uses digital stereo vision technology to generate accurate 3D data. This technology is increasingly used throughout the global automotive industry in order to improve quality control.

The system is available as a portable unit or automated system, which can be operated with all common industrial robots. The hardware and software was developed by Hexagon Metrology.

“The new product generation comes with innovative LED technology, extremely stable carbon fibre housing and a very compact system setup”, explained Duncan Redgewell, Hexagon Metrology’s Vice-President Portable Products. “The release of this product introduces another powerful metrology sensor that can complete a huge variety of inspection tasks.”
