Accuracy In Welding With 2D Scanners

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.

Measuring Rail Gauge Using Laser Scanners

In order to keep commerce moving, railroad companies as well as shippers, rely on inspections and preventative maintenance to keep trains moving safely. Train rails are regularly inspected for defects and one of the criteria for train rail inspections is rail gauge. In the United States, the standard rail gauge is 56.5 inches and it is important that rails do not get closer than 56 inches or further than 58 inches.

3D Laser Scan of Key

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.
