Third Dimension, manufacturers of the GapGun and Vectro precision-measurement tools, have extended their T-series line of measurement sensor with the new T15. With its optimised field of view and high flexibility of use, the T15 sensor offers the perfect measurement tool for manufacturing.
The T15 sensor is compatible with both the hand-held GapGun or the automated Vectro devices. It measures a range of features including edge profiles, gaps, flush, welds and more, with exceptional precision and accessibility to the component.
This new sensor addresses a key challenge for metrology and quality teams in the aerospace, automotive, energy and industrial sectors who regularly need to measure small radii and make accurate measurements on all sorts of component parts with total confidence to meet precision, safety and efficiency requirements.
Francois Froment, CEO at Third Dimension, said: “We are delighted to be bringing this high precision sensor to market to start the year. Working closely with our distributors and customers we know that we have created a solution which meets their high precision metrology needs, including enhancing their industry 4.0 strategies.”
“Whether for car parts or other industrial equipment, ensuring these fine tolerances through accurate measurement is essential, and in the past has been a labour-intensive activity for metrologists. The T15, which integrates easily with GapGun and Vectro, will help change this.”
An automotive OEM and a Third Dimension Customer who took part in T15 trials, said: “The Gapgun used with the new T15 sensor offers an efficient tool to measure dashboards quickly and accurately. This tool allows us to digitalise our dashboard control, secure data traceability and provides an overall saving compared to manual gauges. Its exceptional ergonomic design allows operators to use the tool inline or offline.
The T15 is highly adaptable and comes in two versions: the ‘V’ Universal sensor which can measure a range of surfaces from bright finishes to the very darkest paints and carbon surfaces, and the ‘M’ Metallic sensor for measuring bright machined metal, chrome components and highly reflective surfaces.
