Automated Loading and Autonomous Part Inspection

ZEISS ScanBox Series 5 RC

Production-Related Quality Assurance and Serial Monitoring

ZEISS ScanBox Series 5 RC (Remote Control) is an optical measuring machine with a motorized sliding door. With a robot or a customized loading system, you automatically load parts such as airfoils, attached parts or tools into ZEISS ScanBox Series 5 RC and place them on the rotation table module. As the user does not have to place the individual parts, the time required for quality assurance is significantly shorter than before. The autonomous operation increases machine utilization, accelerates measuring cycles and allows you to deploy your staff more efficiently. ZEISS ScanBox Series 5 RC is available in two model variants and has been specially designed for applications that require a high degree of integration and throughput. Due to its small footprint, the system can be smoothly integrated into every production line.

High Throughput and High Repeatability

Precise Measuring Procedures and Optimal Comparability

Quality assurance during series production is all about monitoring production processes, reducing scrap and minimizing the need for rework. For this application, the ZEISS ScanBox Series 5 RC optical measuring machine is the ideal solution. Directly compare the actual coordinates of serial parts that were created entirely in 3D with an ATOS 5 sensor with the CAD model or with specifications from a measurement plan. Create inspection reports directly at your production facilities and export them to statistical process-control systems.

Maximum Machine Utilization and Optimized Processes

If you want to use the full potential of ZEISS ScanBox Series 5 RC, combine the optical measuring machine with a feeding and loading system by ZEISS. ZEISS Integration Series enables you to automate the loading of parts and thus prevent downtimes. Both the part flow and the operation time are optimized.

Automation Technology with a Magazine Loading System

Integrating a magazine loading system increases cycle times and reduces the staff requirement – the system measures autonomously for up to 11 hours. The magazine loading system is manually stacked with part batches such as turbine blades. Each fixture is labeled with a unique RFID chip for identification. Based on its information, the suitable measuring program is automatically selected. After the inspection, the part is automatically returned.

Virtual Measuring Room in the 3D Metrology Software

The virtual measuring room (VMR) is the central controlling and measurement planning software for all elements of optical measuring cells. The VMR functionally represents the real environment, i.e., robot, sensor and part in the measuring cell, as a simulation. Programming includes the kinematics of the robot paths, the fixture and the measurement plan. Thanks to the VMR, the user can work with the system without requiring specific robot programming skills. All robot movements are simulated and checked for safety before being performed in the actual environment.

Sensor Compatibility

ATOS sensors provide full-field 3D coordinates for each individual measurement. Within a few seconds, up to 12 million independent measuring points are captured per scan. As a result, the measuring data are characterized by highly detailed reproduction, thereby enabling very small part features to be measured.
