ATOS Core – Optical 3D Scanner

GOM ATOS Core Model Plate

ATOS Core is the specialist for the three-dimensional measurement of small components up to 500 millimeters in size. The sensor forms the basis for a diverse range of measuring tasks – from simple 3D scanning to fully automated measurement and inspection processes. The ATOS Core is used for the three-dimensional measurement of small and medium-sized objects such as ceramic cores, and cast or plastic parts.

Essential Line

The ATOS Core Essential Line with the GOM Scan software is designed for simple scanning tasks. Its focus is on 3D scans of high data quality for applications such as reverse engineering or rapid prototyping.

The GOM Scan software is an easy-to-use measurement software for intuitive operation that controls the ATOS Core sensor and at the same time processes the recorded 3D surface data to high-quality 3D grids and provides it in STL format. An upgrade to the Professional or Kinematics Line is possible at any time if the requirements or measuring tasks change.

Professional Line

The ATOS Core Professional Line is available for comprehensive shape and dimension analysis. Parametric inspection can be used to completely trace and link all actions and analysis steps in the software. Further functions include selective projection and back projection as well as dynamic referencing for tracking, touch probe and adapter applications.

ATOS ScanPort

GOM has developed an optical desktop scanner for the measurement and inspection of small components. Recurring measuring tasks in particular are simplified with the fully automated rotation, swivel and linear axes. The movements can be recorded with the Motion Replay software functionality - without the need for prior programming. Thus, when users need to measure similar parts, these measuring procedures are simply called up.

Kinematics Line

The ATOS Core Kinematics Line is for the automated measurement and inspection of small components. The robot-guided sensor is integrated in the ready-to-use ATOS ScanBox measuring cell, thus enabling efficient quality control in the production process. The ATOS ScanBox is an optical 3D measuring machine for fully automated 3D digitizing and inspection. It combines optimized industrial components, mobility and highest safety in one device.

ATOS Core Technology

Optics and electronics are integrated in very small installation space for the first time. Its compact shape gives the sensor high stability and allows measurements to be taken in confined spaces. Depending on resolution requirements and measuring field sizes, the easy-to-handle sensor heads can be replaced easily via a quick release, without the need for re-calibration.

Triple Scan Principle

Precise fringe patterns are projected onto the surface of the object and are recorded by two cameras, based on the stereo camera principle. As the beam paths of both cameras and the projector are calibrated in advance, 3D surface points from three different ray intersections can be calculated: Visual beam camera / camera, visual beam camera on left / projected beam projector and camera on right / projected beam projector. This automatic principle offers advantages in measuring reflective surfaces and objects with indentations.

Blue Light Technology

The projection unit of the ATOS Core system is based on Blue Light Technology. Since the sensor works with narrow-band blue light, interfering ambient light can be filtered during image acquisition. Due to its powerful light source, short measuring times can be achieved.

GOM Touch Probe

The GOM Touch Probe enables the selective measurement of areas that are difficult to access optically and the measurement of regular geometries and their direct comparison with CAD data.

GOM adapter

The GOM adapters provide additional options for live measurement, such as component alignment or the measurement of regular geometries and edges.

Self-monitoring system

The ATOS Core is a self-monitoring system. The sensor recognizes changing ambient conditions during operation and is able to compensate these changes.

Parametric Inspection

The ATOS Professional evaluation software provides all necessary tools for a comprehensive analysis of parts and components. Using parametric inspection, all actions and evaluation steps are completely traceable and interlinked. Thus, changes and modifications are possible at any time.
