SmartRay Launches 3D Sensor For Glass and Specular Surface Measurements

SmartRay, manufacturer of 3D sensors for quality inspection and measuring technology, has added to its ECCO 95 range with a new sensor designed to scan glass and specular reflective surfaces. Previously, the 3D scanning of these surfaces has not been possible, because the laser would pass through the glass.

SmartRay expertise has combined its existing ECCO 95 sensor technology with optimized optics to enable the surface to be scanned, while maintaining the compact sensor size while providing high-resolution, high-speed accuracy and reliability.

Offering superior 3D data quality, the glass sensor is ideal for use in the consumer electronics and mobile phone housing markets and can be easily configured for a wide variety of other applications. It can be used with third party vision software or the customer’s own software framework to enable a completely customisable, cost-effective solution for inspecting any flat glass or specular surface.

The 450 nm brilliant blue laser delivers a typical lateral resolution between 6 and 6.8 µm, and a vertical resolution between 0.42 and 0.54 µm and can create a 3D profile with up to 1920 points. Mounted at a 21o pitch angle, it provides a typical field of view of 12mm at mid-field.
