ARAMIS Adjustable

ARAMIS Adjustable

ARAMIS Adjustable is a stereo camera system for full-field or point-based analyses of statically or dynamically loaded parts. The ARAMIS Adjustable provides precise 3D coordinates and is used in the research field for very small to large-sized objects. The sensor can be flexibly used for different measuring tasks due to variable measuring volumes and measuring distances.

For statically and dynamically loaded specimens and parts, the ARAMIS Adjustable provides precise data including:

  • 3D coordinates
  • 3D displacements, velocities and accelerations
  • Surface strain
  • Material properties for simulation (Young’s modulus etc.)
  • Evaluation of 6 degrees of freedom (6DoF)

ARAMIS Adjustable in Use

ARAMIS Technology

Sensor

ARAMIS Adjustable is available with two different camera models. The 6-megapixel camera with a maximum image recording rate of 25 Hz at full resolution is very suitable for the determination of material parameters and for the evaluation of local effects, especially with very small measuring volumes. By reducing the resolution, the frame rate can be increased to 44 Hz. The ARAMIS Adjustable with 2.3 megapixels and a maximum image recording rate of 130 Hz at full resolution expands the range of applications. By reducing the image height, the image recording rate can be also increased up to 450 Hz.

Sensor Setup

The flexible setup of the ARAMIS Adjustable sensor allows fast adjustment to different measuring tasks. Adjustable lenses, variable camera distances and measuring distances allow numerous measuring volumes within the defined measuring areas. Due to its variable setup, the sensor is mainly used in research facilities and universities working on a variety of different applications.

Dual LED Illumination

The dual LED illumination is mounted on two flexible joint holders at the sensor head. Due to its flexible mounting, objects can be illuminated from different directions, which provides a solution for difficult to access test specimens and testing devices. Two high-performance dual LEDs are used for an optimum illumination of very small to medium-sized objects from a few mm² up to 500 mm x 500 mm.

Integration into Testing Environment

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.

Live Tracking
The Live functions of ARAMIS permit online measurement, positioning and motion analyses and they are supported by measurements with touch probes and adapters.

Long-Term Online Measurement

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.

GOM Touch Probe

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 Adapter

GOM Adapters offer extended opportunities for live measurement, such as component alignments or measurements of regular geometries and edges.

ARAMIS Professional Live

Multi-Sensor

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.

Large Measuring Volume

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.

Verification of Numerical Simulation

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.

Kiosk – Automated Inspection

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.

ARAMIS Professional Software
The ARAMIS Professional software offers the complete workflow from measuring data acquisition, via analysis, up to reporting.

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 Software

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.
