5th generation GOM optical sensors enable large volume scanning

ATOS 5 and ATOS 5X high-speed sensors have been added to the GOM ATOS product series. The new robust 5th generation 3D scanners are fast and precise with Blue Light Equaliser, a component specifically developed and resulting in an ultra-powerful light source enabling the scanning of large measuring volumes. ATOS 5X uses an integrated Laser Light Compressor to generate the ultra-bright blue light.

Both measuring sensors achieve high-precision data in a short measuring time. High data quality is evident in the sharpness of detail of the generated 3D models including the precise display of smallest details, rib structures, narrow radii and hemmed edges.

The enhanced measuring areas combined with high resolution result in faster processes due to the fewer measurements required to completely capture a part geometry. Fixture design can also be simplified as a larger surface is captured and fewer reference points are now required.

During the measuring procedure acquisition times of 0.2 seconds are achieved. Interference-free data transfer is via fiber optic cables, providing independence from the surrounding system environment and the sensor-controlled monitoring of calibration status allowing the systems use in production.

The new ATOS sensors offer their maximum efficiency in automated production metrology applications using the ATOS ScanBox series. ATOS 5X, in combination with ATOS ScanBox Series 8, accelerates the inspection process by a factor of four when measuring and inspecting large and complex objects.
