Hexagon’s RS6 laser scanner for the 7-axis Absolute Arm cobot is available from Exact Metrology (Brookfield, WI and Cincinnati, OH). The scanner uses systematic high-intelligence noise elimination (SHINE) technology to consistently provide accurate and repeatable measurements even on the most challenging surfaces; whether it’s a glossy black plastic automotive body part or a molded carbon-fiber component, the unit scans 1.2 million points/seconds at 300 Hz. SHINE also allows users to scan 99% of parts without touching the scanner exposure.
The scanner has a laser stripe of 150 mm at midrange and a visual guide that provides real time feedback for stand-off distance. That means the scanner has a three-times-faster frame rate and 30% wider laser stripe than other scanners.
The scanner has been tested with 3DReshaper Meteor; Apodius 3D Explorer, BendingStudio; Geomagic Design X, Control X, Wrap; Inspire; PC DMIS; Polyworks; and SpatialAnalyzer application software.
