Acuity is pleased to announce our support for large area target scans at high speeds and high resolution.
One of Acuity’s customers, Ames Engineering has developed a 2D and 3D laser texture scanner using the Acuity AR200 laser triangulation sensor inside their portable and GPS enabled Texture Scanner. With the simple push of a button the unit automatically begins the scanning process providing the operator with immediate and accurate texture measurements. Once a […]
An Acuity medical customer is using the Initial 4.0 model to create a 3D scan of medical samples to measure the change in the surface features. The Initial 4.0 model uses a CL4 MG35 probe that has a standoff of 16 mm with a 4 mm measurement span and a resolution of 130 nanometers and a linearity of +/- 300 nanometers at up to 2,000 samples per second.
The process of welding requires extreme caution and extreme accuracy. When dealing with high temperatures and melting of metals, there is little room for error. Many manufacturers have chosen to use Acuity’s 2D Laser Scanner to inspect the welding process.
Demonstrating the capabilities of the new AccuProfile 820 Laser Scanner at the recent Quality Expo (Chicago), operators scanned an individual car key to produce an elevation map. The AP820 laser scanner emits a laser line onto a surface or object. The image of this line is viewed by a high-accuracy CCD array. Height positions are calculated across this line and transmitted over an Ethernet line to a PC computer.
Design and implementation of a 3D laser scanner is no simple task, but the engineers at Ocular Robotics have done a commendable job with theirs. They have developed the RobotEye™ sensor pointing platform for use in mining applications, civil and defense UAV applications, homeland security applications and general robotics applications that are directly dependent on the dynamic performance.
The National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan State University uses a laser sensor in a system to measure the alignment of detectors. A full presentation of the project can be accessed from their website.
