New Handheld Profile, Gap and Flush Measurement System Introduced at HxGN LOCAL Beijing

New CALIPRI C14 Helps Automotive OEMs and Tier 1 Suppliers Achieve High Perceived Quality for Car Body and Closures Fit and Finish

04 september 2018
NEXTSENSE, part of Hexagon, today announced the release of its next generation CALIPRI C14 non-contact flush and gap measurement device for China and other global automotive markets. Continuing the strong success of the CALIPRI C10, the CALIPRI C14 offers the latest wireless technology, a new blue laser source and other CALIPRI software improvements including inspection planning, real-time dimensioning and off-line profile analysis. The CALIPRI C14 supports fast and easy inspection of complex assembly geometries and other visual and functional elements such as design and character lines on the car body exterior.

The CALIPRI C14 is based on further development of the patented laser light section technology by NEXTSENSE. Offering industry unique 2D profile scanning deep into the gap, it also ensures high accuracy and repeatability independent of operator handling and sensor positioning or tilting. CALIPRI C14 features a rechargeable battery-powered device and full wireless operation between the sensor and the tablet PC which runs the CALIPRI software. Profile measurements are transmitted between CALIPRI sensor and tablet PC via secure WLAN channel. Measured dimensions are then calculated and displayed in colour according to limits defined by the customer on both sensor-back display and on the tablet PC. The results can be presented in a report or exported and integrated into enterprise system including Hexagon’s eMMA and Q-DAS software for monitoring, reporting, process improvement, problem solving and statistical process control (SPC). 

The CALIPRI C14 features a new blue laser source which further enhances its optical dynamic supporting larger a variety of car body exterior assemblies including various surface conditions, chrome parts and semi-transparent backlights. This is a useful improvement during all stages of product development and production including prototyping, stamping, hemming, body shop, paint shop, final assembly and audit. 

The new CALIPRI C14 has excelled in early customer testing and has been already ordered by several leading automotive OEMs across all regions. Together with the wired CALIPRI C10, the inline manual CALIPRI C11 and inline automated C12, the range supports customers and users throughout the automotive product development and production processes. CALIPRI C10 customer and users will also be offered upgrade packages to replace their sensors and software with the latest version.

The new CALIPRI C14 will be featured at the upcoming HxGN LOCAL Beijing, Hexagon’s user conference in China from 10-12 September. NEXTSENSE will present a number of product innovations in ‘The Zone’ technology expo and visitors will have the opportunity to get hands on the latest generation of NEXTSENSE CALIPRI™ profile measurement devices. 

In addition, the entire CALIPRI C1X offering for automotive manufacturers will be presented in a dedicated live session during the event. Other CALIPRI based solutions for the steel and train industry will also be highlighted.
