LS-C-5.8 Machine Tool Laser Sensor
Complete solution for laser scanning directly on the machine tool
Accurate machine tool measurement typically involves capturing data for a limited number of points on a part. With a metrology-grade laser scanner integrated into the machine tool, users can quickly capture and analyse a complete, data-rich image of a part and act to address flaws while the part is still clamped. The results bring new levels of speed, precision and flexibility to machine tool inspection, while minimising the need for external measurement devices.
Equipped with a blue line laser, the LS-C-5.8 quickly and precisely captures data equally well on shiny or dark surfaces. Its compact design and large field of view make it possible to use on most kinds of parts and machine tools. Its intuitive, highly functional software is compatible with controls from Fanuc, Siemens and Heidenhain.
The LS-C-5.8 system captures thousands of measurement points every second. It lets users visualise surface data in easy-to-use colour maps and compare results to the digital model of the part.
Measuring freeform surfaces
Measuring freeform surfaces on the machine tool typically involves creating and analysing many single measurement points. With a laser scanner, users can quickly capture complete surface data and compare it to the CAD model.
Exact alignment before reworking
Having a full picture of the surface makes it easier to identify and errors that arise during manufacturing, such as incorrect clamping, and use precise alignment to address.
Not all parts have 3D models. The LS-C-5.8 creates them by scanning a part while it is on the machine tool, allowing the resulting data to be exported as an stp-file and integrated into a CAD-program.
