ZEISS is releasing two new advanced measuring systems, namely, the 3D sensor ZEISS COMET 8M and the ZEISS T-SCAN 20 handheld laser scanner. The new compact 3D sensor ZEISS COMET 8M is equipped with an 8-megapixel camera and is therefore the new, high-resolution version of the ZEISS COMET L?D 2.
“We’re using this new resolution to tap into the application fields of turbine blades and consumer electronics,” explains Markus Eßer, Head, ZEISS Optotechnik. After all, to check whether these complex precision parts are in line with the prescribed tolerances, the data captured using the sensor has to be highly precise. In order to complete the different measuring tasks perfectly, users can opt for one of many lenses – and switching measuring fields is still easy. The ZEISS COMET 8M offers a host of benefits such as the 3D sensor is easy to transport, construct and calibrate.
ZEISS has also developed a mid-range segment for its modular laser scanner systems.
The ZEISS T-TRACK 20 laser scanner tracking unit has a measuring volume of 20 m3 which is coupled with a scanner and touch probe, offering a hassle free measurement solution.
“The new system was completely revamped – and we now rely exclusively on products from the ZEISS Group. After all, we have the skills for optics and cameras in-house,” says Eßer. These technical enhancements enable as yet unmatched precision that is achieved across the measuring volume. The ZEISS T-SCAN 20 enables greater mobility – including for at-line measurements.
“The new systems deliver spotless data at the high speed users have come to expect. We’ve managed to triple the measuring volume and drastically reduce measurement uncertainty,” says Eßer.
