The new 2-in-1 sensor technology of Isra Vision
3D robot guidance and 3D inline measurement
With a new and pioneering mix of technologies and measuring methods using 3D point cloud technology, a new all-round system combines 3D robot guidance and 3D inline measurement. Thanks to different software packages, the system is able to perfectly adapt to various tasks, enabling a broad range of applications in any production line.
The Area Profile Scanner 3D offers a combination of stereometry, triangulation and different types of illumination, according to the specific application: a random pattern illumination of a multi-line illumination. The random pattern illumination delivers the necessary local reference points in a single shot, speeding up the scan and cycle time. Object recognition can therefore be handled on the fly without any blurring. For precise scans, the multi-line illumination captures structures three-dimensionally and in every detail.
Efficient teach-in of characteristics
The gathered data is aggregated to a point cloud and – thanks to an on-board PC – is also available in STL-format for fast CAD comparison. Thanks to automated data meshing, complex surfaces can be depicted thoroughly, safely capturing complex features including plains and boreholes. Particularly for inline measurement, the APS3D offers an efficient teach-in of targets to measure: with just a few clicks, new edges, gaps or holes can be defined. With a new and integrated evaluation software, the system delivers exact numeric measurement results out of the three-dimensional images.
Intelligent sensor networks for the future
As a part of Isra’s “Touch & Automate“ portfolio, the sensor will be equipped with WiFi and thus be able to connect with other sensors and a shared database. Within this sensor network, the deployed systems will be able to cooperate in completing extensive measurement tasks, while also being able to immediately deliver comprehensive aggregated information for process analysis. Users can directly access these data through structured reports. Thanks to its a high flexibility, connectivity and adaptability the APS3D turns into an ideal component for networked production and Industrie 4.0.
