The ARAMIS 3D Camera is a measuring system for full-field and point-based measurements. With a high resolution of 6 megapixels and a maximum image recording rate of 25 Hz at full resolution, the sensor is suited for medium-fast applications in the field materials and components testing. In a different configuration with a resolution of 2.3 megapixels and a maximum image recording rate of 130 Hz at full resolution expands the range of applications. The ARAMIS 3D Camera is employed in general research and industrial applications for measurements of small specimens up to large objects.
For statically and dynamically loaded specimens and parts, the ARAMIS 3D Camera provides precise data including:
High Resolution for Medium-Fast Applications
With a high resolution of 6 megapixels and a maximum image recording rate of 25 Hz at full resolution, the ARAMIS 3D Camera is suited for applications in materials and components testing. The sensor offers the appropriate resolution for medium-fast applications, e.g. for a reliable determination of material properties. In addition, by reducing the resolution, the image recording rate can be increased to 44 Hz.
Higher Frame Rates for faster moving Objects
With a resolution of 2.3 megapixels and a maximum image recording rate of 130 Hz at full resolution, the ARAMIS 3D Camera offers the right solution for faster moving test objects. By reducing the image height, the image acquisition speed can be increased up to 450 Hz.
The ARAMIS sensor is a stereo camera system providing precise 3D coordinates based on triangulation. Due to its robust housing design, the ARAMIS 3D Camera ensures the required stability with a low demand for sensor calibration for applications in industrial environments. In addition, the measuring areas can be adjusted quickly, due to the exchangeable camera frame and the use of preset and certified measuring lenses.
Blue Light Technology
The Blue Light Technology excels by its narrow-band blue light, which means that interfering ambient light during image acquisition can be filtered out. The light sources are designed to ensure an optimum illumination with short exposure times for all measuring areas from 10 mm x 10 mm up to 5 m x 5 m.
The light projector is used for measurement areas up to 1 m x 1 m and can be set to different illumination areas. With its Blue Light Technology it provides a stable light source for accurate measurements in all environments.
The Tracking Spots are used for the illumination of large areas up to 5 m x 5 m and optimized for pointwise measurements for motion analyses. The dual light source configuration utilizes the retro-reflecting effect of the used point markers and thus enables exposure times in the microsecond range for objects moving with high speed.
The ARAMIS sensor calibration is carried out in the ARAMIS Professional software using certified high-precision calibration objects. The complete calibration procedure is user-guided ensuring always a highly accurate calibration result independent from the system operator. The standard ARAMIS sensor calibration is performed within only a few minutes.

The integrated GOM Testing Controller not only controls the stage acquisition but also the light management. Furthermore, a software-based programming interface is integrated for preset or user-defined measuring sequences. The GOM Testing Controller fully supports the integration into existing test environments by means of external triggering and analog data acquisition.
Online component testing is used, for example, in durability tests, fatigue tests as well as in wind tunnel tests and vibration analysis. At the same time, the measuring results can be viewed online or transferred to other programs using digital and analog interfaces and can be processed live by these programs.
In the online measurement, parts and their movements are specifically aligned and positioned to CAD. A typical application, for example, involves transforming the coordinate system of the simulation to the real measuring setup.
Touch probe – The GOM Touch Probe is a tactile measuring system extension that is optically tracked by the ARAMIS system. It is used for tactile measurements and makes it possible to measure coordinates on areas that are difficult to access optically.
GOM Adapters offer extended opportunities for live measurement, such as component alignments or measurements of regular geometries and edges.
Combining several ARAMIS sensors, allows for measuring from various perspectives with different measuring areas. Here, the deformation behavior of a part is recorded simultaneously from all sides and evaluated in a common coordinate system.
For dynamic measuring of complex or large applications with dimensions of up to ten meters in size, ARAMIS enables evaluating the vibration behavior of individual blades of wind power plants under heavy loads caused by weather-related influences.
ARAMIS sensors provide information on material properties of parts. This data is used as input parameters for simulation computations and reference size for optimization and verification. The GOM software allows importing FE data from formats including ABAQUS, LS-DYNA, ANSYS as well as aligning them to the measuring data and in space.
The ARAMIS Kiosk Interface is an user interface for automated evaluation of tensile tests complying with different standards. With minimized user interaction, standardized testing procedures can be carried out fast, easily and repeatable for measurement series with numerous specimens.
The ARAMIS Professional software combines the functionalities of the ARAMIS sensors and the GOM Correlate software, thus offering a synchronized acquisition of images and analog data as well as evaluation functionalities.
GOM Correlate is a software package for digital image correlation (DIC) and 3D motion analysis in materials and components testing. The software is used for the determination of material properties as well as for the validation and optimization of numerical simulations. GOM Correlate is applied in basic research, product development and failure analyses.
Depending on the level, the courses in the GOM training centers offer basics on hardware and software, in-depth knowledge or expert knowledge. For further information and dates, please visit: www.gom.com/training.
