5 Axis 3D Scanning Machine To Perform Production Measurements Launching

A new development for the fully automated 3D measurement of parts is launching at the Kunststoff-Institut Lüdenscheid in Germany on 14th and 15th June 2022. The D3-Inspect 300 fully automated 3D inspection solution uses structured light 3D scanning technology and is aimed at the automated quality control of high-volume production parts. The measurement system conforms according to ISO 14253 and measurement accuracy statements are according to VDI/VDE 2634 part 3. The compact scanner at the heart of the system creates a part image quickly.

The D3-Inspect has been developed as part of the ROCKET (RegiOnal Collaboration on Key Enabling Technologies) project initiative. The new measuring system was developed with project industrial partners. The objective of the project was to configure a system for quality control focused on companies producing components and assemblies who intend to monitor the production process. The paramount objective of the project was analyzing and documenting part shape and positional tolerances. Another aspect was easy operating of the device with measuring tasks manageable after a short instruction.

The D3-Inspect offers 5-axis degrees of freedom with a measuring volume of 300 x 200mm for parts weighing up to 5kg. The overall machine compact footprint is just 550 x 650 x 1900mm. The system has been built for use in production environments and requires no climatic control. Quick-change system fixtures with vacuum clamping allows measurement of multiple parts types.

The 5-axis simultaneous movements of the system rotates the part in all positions around all part features.

Automatic Measurement Evaluation 

All measurement processes are fully automated and are started by an assigned QR code with further steps stored in the measurement process. Various representations of the measurement results ensure a clear understanding of the measurement ensuring action can be taken immediately based on the measured values.
