Initial situation:

Thickness measurement

The client is producing metal parts which need to be evaluated for their thickness. Today, a manual tactile measurement process is carried out, and the measurement takes place from one side only.

Particular challenges

Manual, one-sided measurement on deviating positions of the parts is not very accurate. Furthermore the overall thickness of the part cannot be assessed, as the geometric as well as manufacturing distortion influence the result.

QuellTech solution

Contactless QuellTech Q4-1000 Laser Scanners can achieve this task with high repeatability and speed. Several Laser Scanners can be mounted on both sides of the metal parts in order to cover both sides. This is a crucial condition for accurate width measurement, in just one scan. The scanners are mounted on an existing portal and are synchronized in such a way that no scanner is influenced by any other scanner’s laser lights. By means of a calibration with an appropriate calibration object, the point clouds can be successfully merged into a common reference coordinate system. The resulting 3D Point Cloud can be integrated into any measurement algorithm to satisfy the customer’s needs.

Benefits for the client

Thanks to QuellTech’s fast and innovative laser scanners, the client can obtain the advantage of shorter and accurate cycle times, taking into account the whole 3D object and therefore avoid unexpected deviations regarding the requirements for the metal parts.
