Vision System 3D

Changing the Face of High-Speed Carbon-Fibre Component Analysis

Dedicated to composite part applications, the Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Vision System 3D is a revolutionary solution for the portable inspection and analysis of semi-finished carbon-fibre parts.

APODIUS-Vision-System-3D_with-user2The system comprises HP-C-V3D Vision Sensor hardware – designed to fit simply to an Absolute Arm with RS5 Laser Scanner – together with the custom-built Explorer 3D software package.

The three-dimensional scanning capabilities of the camera-based HP-C-V3D Vision Sensor allow for detailed surface texture mapping, including fine-grained fibre-orientation mapping. Combining this data with the 3D modelling data collected by the RS5 Laser Scanner allows the system to deliver a three-dimensional fibre orientation measurement for comparison with simulation or design data in order to detect, document and classify previously difficult to define production errors.

Explorer 3D
is a real-time software solution custom-built for carbon-fibre surface analysis that supports image processing, output handling and automatic report generation. The measurement process can be visualised in real time within the programme, which can then export fully digitised three-dimensional models based on real-world measurement data. This functionality allows for actual-to-target value comparison through a variety of output modes, including colour-coded simultaneous model and measurement data display.

Combined with the Absolute Arm and RS5 Laser Scanner, which acts as a global reference system for the data collected by the sensor, Vision System 3D represents a high-definition solution for assessing carbon-fibre components that is unmatched on the metrology market.
