At the Control 2017 exhibition GOM responded to the increased needs of the automotive industry by presenting its ATOS ScanBox series 7 and 8 for automated 3D digitizing and inspection of large automotive sheet metal parts, such as car side panels and complete body-in-white (BIW).
The optical measuring cells can be set up and put into flexible operation at different locations in automotive press shops and body plants – without the need for permanent fixing or complicated floor anchoring. Due to the 8-axis kinematics of the ScanBox – a combination of a horizontal rail, a vertical lift and an articulated robot – the ATOS ScanBox systems allow maximum flexibility and working range for the ATOS sensor. Automotive parts and BIW can be measured from any perspective – including interiors where space is at a premium. Based on the actual 3D coordinates, deviations from CAD and detailed information such as GD&T, trimming or hole positions can be inspected.
In addition the ATOS Professional software, which is included as standard with the systems, enables the virtual assembly of complete car bodies allowing measuring results of mating parts to be merged virtually to evaluate information on gap and flush.
