Versatile Blue Laser Line CMM Scanner

Perceptron, a provider of 3D automated metrology solutions and coordinate measuring machines, has announced the release of its latest generation of laser line scanner, featuring a blue laser, high acquisition rate and large field-of-view.

Perceptron has been developing laser line scanners and sensors for more than 30 years; the V7 is the latest sensor in the family. The V7 seamlessly integrates into Perceptron’s TouchDMIS software for both point cloud acquisition as well as feature extraction. The V7 offers customers increased accuracy and faster inspection. The V7 sensor’s blue laser line creates a unique value proposition by capturing accurate data on a multitude of difficult materials, including dark and reflective surfaces without the typical powder spray or stickering. The V7 scanner combined with a Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) and TouchDMIS software form a complete and seamless product offering for measurement and reverse engineering applications.

Speed – Maximum of 1,280 points along the laser line at a rate up to 50Hz provides high-density scan data.

Dynamic Range – Captures accurate data on dark and reflective surfaces without the need for harmful white powder sprays and paints.

Field-of-View – Maximum width and depth of field of 88mm and 100mm enables capture of large geometrical regions.

“The Perceptron V7 scanner is a versatile tool for CMM users to quickly scan features and freeform surfaces,” said Rick Van Valkenburg, Vice President Global Sales and Marketing for Perceptron. “The ability to optimize the scanner, software and CMM provides the best possible solution for our customers. Perceptron’s three decades of experience with measurement algorithms enables us to generate pristine point clouds for reverse engineering and provide rapid feature measurement directly in TouchDMIS with the V7 sensor.”
