Hexagon offers automated white light sensor system demos

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence's white light sensor cell.
Demonstrations of an automated white light sensor system for measuring a vast array of objects from small parts to complete car bodies are being offered by Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence.

The cell's sensor takes large field of view images of the component and extracts geometric feature and surface point cloud data. Designed for inline, nearline and offline applications, it provides the user with actionable, real-time information on the shop floor.

The cell is unaffected by working in harsh production line environments, the firm says.

Jon Kimber, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence's robotics and automation product line specialist, explains that the cell, supplied with folding doors for easy transport, can be configured in a variety of formats to suit customer requirements.

He says: "We can use any number and size of turntables, robots, white light sensor heads and linear tracks to fit the application whether it's whole cars or small, individual components.”

While mainly used for automotive sheet metal applications, the cell is increasingly being employed by customers in the forging, casting and aerospace sectors, Kimber adds.
