PLYMOUTH, MI, Dec 14, 2018 – Perceptron, Inc., a leading global provider of 3D automated metrology solutions and coordinate measuring machines, announced the release of the V7, the latest generation of its laser line scanner, which features a blue laser, high acquisition rate and large field-of-view.
Perceptron has been developing laser line scanners and sensors for more than 30 years, and the V7 is the latest sensor in the family. The V7 seamlessly integrates into Perceptron’s TouchDMIS software for both point cloud acquisition as well as feature extraction. The V7 offers customers increased accuracy and faster inspection. The V7 sensor’s blue laser line creates a unique value proposition by capturing accurate data on a multitude of difficult materials, including dark and reflective surfaces without the typical powder spray or stickering. The V7 scanner combined with a Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) and TouchDMIS software form a complete and seamless product offering for measurement and reverse engineering applications.
“The V7 scanner is a versatile tool for CMM users to quickly scan features and freeform surfaces,” said Rick Van Valkenburg, Vice President Global Sales and Marketing for Perceptron. “The ability to optimize the scanner, software and CMM provides the best possible solution for our customers. Perceptron’s three decades of experience with measurement algorithms enables us to generate pristine point clouds for reverse engineering and provide rapid feature measurement directly in TouchDMIS with the V7 sensor.”
Perceptron has already accepted three orders for the V7, and customer delivery is scheduled at the end of the month.
