NVIS, Inc. Key Developments

NVision Introduces RoboScanner

NVision to introduce the RoboScanner, a lightweight, turn-key laser scanning system that offers fully automated scanning with 3D analysis. Until now industrial robots were large, heavy, stationary, and expensive. The RoboScanner comes with none of these disadvantages. Weighing only 50 pounds and being touch-sensitive, it avoids the need for the safety cage required by larger, immobile, high-force robots. In addition, the scanner provides instant inspection analysis and key performance advantages in speed, accuracy, and ease of use. Optical Blue Light Scanner: The RoboScanner uses a high resolution digital blue-light scanning system and can capture over 500,000 points in less than 0.2 seconds. Multiple scans are automatically registered seamlessly and the resulting file compared to a nominal CAD model to receive an instant go/no-go decision. Robot Scanners of the Past: Robotic scanners are not by themselves new but generally require a tremendous amount of programming. The RoboScanner was designed with integrated software for easy programming. The RoboScan software can capture scan positions manually or with a simple click on the computer screen with the mouse. Then RoboScanner moves automatically to the next scan position. RoboScan software detects path interference in real time to avoid collisions. All travel paths are logged and can be cut and pasted into script files just like using a word processor. Multi axis: The RoboScanner utilizes 6 axes of along with an optional turntable for 7 full axes of movement. All of these axes can be controlled to ensure smooth and fast movement around all of the points to be measured even on difficult to measure horizontal geometry. High accuracy: The RoboScanner offers outstanding accuracy, as high as +/- 0.002" or +/- 0.050mm. The resolution can be as fine as 0.0005" or 0.012 mm. Real-time output: The RoboScanner will follow a preset path for the measurement of similar parts without the need for expensive fixturing. Consistent with a production environment, RoboScanner will provide a complete inspection report at the end of its measuring routine without delay, enabling instant feedback for process control. Alternatively, data can also be processed offline.
