Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Launches Compact Automated Measurement System

qFLASH-A 3D Optical Sensor Offers an Economical Solution for Automated Shop-Floor Inspection

2018年6月19日

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence today announced the launch of qFLASH-A, an economical and compact 3D optical measurement system designed for use in smaller shop-floor inspection cells. The robust sensor packages CMOS-based digital imaging technology and blue light LED illumination in a lightweight unit ideally suited for use with smaller robotic systems or collaborative robots, creating a high-speed inspection solution with a small footprint and affordable price point. Projection and image capture take place within milliseconds, enabling precise and rapid data capture as well as protecting the system from the impact of workshop vibrations or changes in ambient light. As a result, qFLASH-A is ideally suited to shop-floor measurement applications and can eliminate the need to transport parts for offline measurement, driving workshop productivity.

The qFLASH-A sensor features dynamic slide projection technology and three integrated CMOS cameras, delivering high frame rate and wide dynamic range to quickly and accurately digitise freeform surfaces without the need for treatment, preparation or marker use. Advanced image analysis and edge detection engines ensure accurate feature capture, enabling the sensor to add value to a range of measurement applications requiring rich point-cloud data. qFLASH-A is certified to VDI/VDE standards and ships with CoreView metrology software as standard.

“The productivity potential of automated shop-floor inspection systems makes them hugely desirable. However, manufacturers with smaller workshops are often put off by the amount of space required for a large robotic installation, or concerned about the level of investment,” explains Amit Baharal, Product Marketing Manager for Automated Solutions at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “The qFLASH-A solution shares technology and many of the user benefits of our high-end automated inspection solutions, but has been specifically designed for use with smaller robots to reduce both the cost and the footprint of the inspection cell. qFLASH-A is a very cost-effective way to introduce a high-speed measurement solution into your manufacturing workflow and will offer good return on investment for smaller workshops.”

qFLASH-A is available to order worldwide from today. More information is available through local Hexagon commercial operations and dealers.
