Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has announced the release of BLAZE 600A, a fully-automated 3D optical measurement system designed for use with robotic installations on the shop floor. Based on Hexagon’s proven white light scanner technology, BLAZE 600A combines high-resolution digital imaging technology with blue light LED illumination to rapidly deliver high-accuracy freeform surface and feature data. Its large measurement field efficiently captures high-density point cloud data, while enhanced projection technology enables virtually any material or surface type, including shiny, painted and reflective surfaces, black parts and composite materials, to be scanned without the need for surface preparation.
BLAZE 600A is optimized for shop-floor measurement so manufacturers can reduce the time spent transporting workpieces from the production area for inspection. Easy to use and offering fully-automated scanning, the system requires a maximum of one operator. Fast data capture provides near-total immunity to the effects of vibration or changes in ambient light, ensuring accurate measurement even in changeable workshop conditions. To minimize downtime and maintenance costs, BLAZE 600A’s high-data-rate cameras, projector unit and electronics are robustly designed for heavy industrial use, while all optical components are protected by a rigid, temperature-stable housing. The system is available in two projection configurations and supports several measurement field size settings without compromising accuracy on larger fields of view. Different data acquisition modes can also be selected to ensure the best possible results for each inspection task.
BLAZE 600A is available to order worldwide from today. More information is available through local Hexagon commercial operations and dealers.
