The perfect combination for simple automated inspections tasks
GOM ScanCobot is a mobile measuring station with a collaborative robot, a motorized rotation table and powerful software. In a short measuring time, the optical ATOS 3D scanner captures quality information at a high level of detail, providing a reliable basis for easy interpretation. To measure a part completely, the sensor must face the part from different directions. The GOM ScanCobot uses a collaborative robot to perform this normally manual work process. Combined with the motorized rotation table, the robot can move along the sensor positions very quickly one by one. Efficient scanning and subsequent automatic inspection speed up quality control processes.
The ATOS Q sensor combined with the GOM ScanCobot accelerates all processes in quality control of small and medium-sized parts. Measurement planning, digitizing and inspection take place in the virtual measuring room (VMR) of the powerful software GOM Inspect Suite.
In shop floor metrology, it is important to identify, analyze and eliminate quality problems as fast as possible. The mobile measuring station GOM ScanCobot enables a fast and efficient 3D inspection of different parts and thus efficiently supports the product development process.
Easy Robot Programming in the Virtual Measuring Room
The GOM ScanCobot is programmed in the virtual measuring room (VMR) of the GOM Inspect Suite. The VMR is the central control and measurement planning software that represents the complete measuring procedure. In the software, the CAD data set of the part to be inspected is imported together with the associated measurement plan. The necessary sensor positions and robot paths are computed fully automatically at the push of a button.
Automatic teaching allows the user to work with the system without the need for specific robot programming skills. If the Kiosk Interface is activated, parts can be measured quickly using existing project templates, without the need for adjustments. As the user can no longer change measuring programs and evaluations, process reliability is enhanced. With the GOM ScanCobot, measuring and inspection tasks can be easily delegated from the measuring room to production.
One Measuring System, Two Sensor Variants
Thanks to the Blue Light Equalizer and fast data processing, ATOS Q impresses with an outstanding performance. The Blue Light Equalizer enables high-speed fringe projection and is so powerful that even on uncooperative surfaces short measuring times can be achieved. Industrial ports with fiber optic cables and robust plug-in connections allow for high data throughput. Interchangeable lenses ensure high-precision measurements of small to medium-sized parts in various industries.
Using blue fringe projection, the non-contact ATOS Core sensor delivers precise scans with detailed resolution at high speed. ATOS Core was developed with sophisticated software for repeatable and precise measurements. ATOS Core sensors have proven to be effective in numerous industries for the measurement of parts such as sheet metals, tools and molds, prototypes, injection-molded and pressure die-cast parts.
Field of Application
User-friendly entry-level solution
The Automation department at GOM is headed by Dr. Carsten Reich. During the interview, he characterizes the GOM ScanCobot as an easy-to-use entry-level solution for automated optical 3D metrology, giving the metrologist more time for data evaluation and problem analysis.
High-precision measurement of various parts
The GOM ScanCobot is especially suited for efficient quality control of small and medium-sized parts made of plastic, metal or cast iron. The system can be used during the preproduction phase such as design and prototyping and during the market launch.
Technical Information and Safety
GOM ScanCobot is a mobile measuring station that can easily and quickly be moved from one location to another. Only a standard socket is required for commissioning. The system can be equipped with a standardized safety housing to comply with market-specific safety regulations.
GOM keeps supporting its customers after the purchase and installation of 3D measuring systems.
