Non-Contact Measuring System
Nikon's HN-C3030 laser scanner acquires surface point clouds at a rate of 120,000 points per second.
Nikon Metrology introduces the non-contact HN-C3030 3D measuring system for precise, high-speed measurement of complex components. The HN-C3030 features an advanced laser scanner. By scanning and comparing the complete shape to the original CAD file, customers obtain insights in product conformity resulting in faster problem-solving and earlier go-to-market. The HN-C3030 includes special optics for the laser scanner that also enables scanning of glossy or dark surfaces without manual preparation, such as powder spraying. The HN-C3030 controls a high-precision 3-axis drive system, as well as an unlimited angular rotary stage and a laser scanner swing arm with an arc angle of -20° to +135°. This enables laser scanning of wide areas covering top and side surfaces, and even bottom surfaces, of parts. In addition, the direction of the laser scanner can be changed (-180° to +180° rotatable), allowing scans of various shapes from optimum angles. The laser scanner acquires surface point clouds at a rate of 120,000 points per second. The result is a full 3D scan of the part.
