Mobile optical 3D measuring system for online photogrammetry

PONTOS Live is GOM’s tracking system for positioning components, as for a precise alignment on CNC machines or for the adjustment of fixtures. Combined with the GOM Touch Probe, PONTOS Live allows the inspection of areas that are optically difficult to access.

Based on the triangulation principle, PONTOS Live analyzes components of different sizes – from a few millimeters up to several meters – point by point and regardless of the material.

Metrological concept – sensor technology

Stereo camera

The stereo camera system provides precise 3D coordinates of reference point markers. The preset and certified lenses are integrated into an industrial housing, leading to high stability with fewer requirements for sensor calibration. Users can easily change the measuring volume and thus measure small to large objects.

Live functionality

The live functionality allows online measurements and online positioning. It is supported when measuring with GOM Touch Probes and GOM Adapters, so that components can be specifically aligned and positioned to the CAD in an online measurement.

GOM Touch Probe

The GOM Touch Probe is a tactile add-on for measuring systems, which is optically tracked by the system. It is used for tactile measurements and allows measuring coordinates even in areas that are difficult to access.

GOM Adapter

The GOM Adapters offer expanded options for the live measurement such as component positioning or the measurement of geometrical elements and edges.

Evaluation functionality of GOM Inspect Professional

The evaluation and analysis tools of the GOM Inspect Professional software are fully available for PONTOS Live. The parametric concept developed by GOM ensures process reliability and traceability of all elements.
