AUTOSCAN are a series of industrial metrology products that bring automated 3D scanning and dimensional measurement to the shop-floor using the latest collaborative robot technology claims Perceptron.
The company says AUTOSCAN’s self-teach programming capability allows the robot to be programmed quickly without the need for off-line software tools. All robot moves are automatically written to the part inspection program, allowing subsequent parts to be inspected automatically. Perceptron’s HELIX smart scanning sensor incorporates MEMS technology and offers programmable capability, claimed to be a world first. Component part scanning motion is contained within the sensor, improving cycle times and accuracy of scanned data it’s claimed.
