Brown & Sharpe Automated Inspection Cells

The Hexagon Metrology Special Systems Group (SSG) is a dedicated team within Hexagon Metrology that does design, system integration and project management for custom and semi-custom integrations of coordinate metrology products with other manufacturing technology. The productivity enhancements possible from CMM technology can be increased with integration within a manufacturing cell or with other systems, all designed to work together. Here, a Brown & Sharpe Global CMM is integrated into a system designed for automated part loading and unloading.

 

The Hexagon Metrology Special Systems group offers a complete turnkey approach to special systems, from design to procurement, project management and part programming. Integrations that are completely custom or ones that use off-the shelf components and designs for a semi-custom solution are available.

 

Brown & Sharpe is a brand of Hexagon Metrology.

Leica T-MAC Robot Automated Alignment Demonstration

Integration of the Leica T-MAC Tracker-Machine wireless control sensor on an industrial robot with a Leica Laser Tracker, in an automatic alignment/assembly application.

 

The T-Mac can be mounted on moving robots, machines, or parts whose positions need to be monitored in 6DoF (degrees of freedom) space. In this case, the 3-D alignment of one part to another is accomplished with the robot, with the T-Mac/Tracker combination providing real-time positional feedback and robot guidance.

 

This innovative application was developed in response to the need for automation of tracking tasks where it is difficult, impossible or undesirable to have a human being holding a Leica T-product device like the T-Probe or T-Scan.

 

The Leica Geosystems Metrology division is part of Hexagon Metrology.

Sheffield Discovery III Shop Floor CMM

The Cordax Discovery CMM from Sheffield Measurement has been adopted by hundreds of manufacturers around the world over the last decade and is the original shop floor CMM. Discovery III is the next evolution of inspection at the point of manufacture and builds upon its predecessor’s many successes, featuring improved accuracy, extended thermal performance, and a modern updated industrial design.

 

In place of air bearings Discovery III uses hardened machine tool re-circulating ball bearings running at just a fraction of their rated load. This contributes to long life and lower maintenance costs in some of the harshest shop environments imaginable. And with no need for air and a roll-around stand, Discovery III provides the ultimate in flexibility when it comes to shop floor layout.

 

Sheffield is a brand of Hexagon Metrology.

Demonstration of PC-DMIS with MultiCapture

Demonstration of MultiCapture feature of PC-DMIS

 

MultiCapture is a vision measurement technology that automatically finds multiple features that fit within the same field of view and captures their measurement data simultaneously. Upon completing the measurements in a particular field of view, MultiCapture drives the camera to the next cluster of features and measures them in the same way. This sequence continues until the inspection program is complete. MultiCapture also works with manual vision systems by prompting the user to move the viewfinder to successive zones of densely populated features.
