New Automated Measurement System from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence
BLAZE 600A 3D Optical Solution Offers Rapid Data Acquisition for Improved Shop-Floor Productivity19 April 2018
BLAZE 600A is optimised for shop-floor measurement so manufacturers can reduce the time spent transporting workpieces from the production area for inspection. Easy to use and offering fully-automated scanning, the system requires a maximum of one operator. Fast data capture provides near-total immunity to the effects of vibration or changes in ambient light, ensuring accurate measurement even in changeable workshop conditions. To minimise downtime and maintenance costs, BLAZE 600A’s high-data-rate cameras, projector unit and electronics are robustly designed for heavy industrial use, while all optical components are protected by a rigid, temperature-stable housing. The system is available in two projection configurations and supports several measurement field size settings without compromising accuracy on larger fields of view. Different data acquisition modes can also be selected to ensure the best possible results for each inspection task.
“BLAZE 600A significantly outperforms earlier-generation systems in terms of accuracy and repeatability, but more importantly it offers a high degree of flexibility to increase application potential throughout the production process,” explains Pål Fugelli, Sales and Marketing Manager – Automated Solutions at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence.
“Manufacturers can set up the system to suit their specific needs and easily adapt it for different tasks. The ability to accurately digitise a huge range of parts means BLAZE 600A offers a single-system measurement solution for all stages of the production cycle, giving quality engineers and production managers the information they need in real-time.
BLAZE 600A is available to order worldwide from today. More information is available through local Hexagon commercial operations and dealers.
