Optical 3D Coordinate Measuring Machine
The ATOS ScanBox is a complete optical measuring machine that was developed by GOM for an efficient quality control in production and manufacturing processes. The ATOS ScanBox has been installed several hundred times worldwide and is successfully used in a variety of industries. Eleven models are available for different part sizes and applications.
While mechanical measuring systems capture data in a point-based or linear manner, optical measuring systems provide full-field data about deviations between the actual 3D coordinates and the CAD data. As this measuring data contains all the object information, in addition to the surface deviations from the CAD, the software also automatically derives detailed information such as GD&T, trimming or hole positions.
The virtual measuring room is the central control station and measurement planning software for all elements of the ATOS measuring cells. It offers the functional representation of a real measurement environment in a virtual simulation. 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.
