Hexagon is expanding its vision product range with user-friendly and practice-oriented system solutions for the measurement of large or palletised 2D moulded parts.
Series components with geometrically varied and strict-tolerance 2D inspection features require a specialised production measuring solution. The new Optiv Classic 8102 and Optiv Classic 12152 have an XY measurement range of 800 mm x 1000 mm or 1200 mm x 1500 mm and can be combined with the optional PC DMIS Operator Interface (OI) to handle workpiece palletising. This enables a fast and automated inspection process, even for large batches of small serial parts such as clutch discs, fine-blanked parts and sheet metal cut-outs for electric motor construction.
Thanks to the extended measurement range accessibility, prepared interchangeable pallets can be supplied semi-automatically by a palletising robot, reducing standstill times and increasing inspection throughput.
The Optiv Classic 8102 and Optiv Classic 12152 are fitted with a world-class vision sensor system comprised of a high-resolution digital CMOS colour camera combined with a programmable 6.5x CNC motor zoom to enable repeatable, fast and automatic measuring-point capture. Both are supplied with PC DMIS Pro as standard, with the option to upgrade to PC DMIS CAD software to extract all relevant dimensional, shape and position tolerances from imported CAD data. With its simplified user-interface, the addition of the PC DMIS OI further enhances the user experience while minimising the risk of input and interpretation errors across entire component pallets.
“We have added two new broad measurement CMMs to our comprehensive Optiv Classic range to give manufacturers a choice of specialised solutions for large part and palletised applications,” said Wolfram Fröhlich, business unit director, PL sCMM (Vision Unit) at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “And to complete these production-ready measuring solutions, we offer the intuitive PC DMIS OI so our customers can achieve the very best results possible.”
