Perceptron Introduces Helix evo 3D Scanning Sensor Family

Published: Wednesday, November 15, 2017 - 14:16

(Perceptron: Plymouth, MI) -- Perceptron Inc. (NASDAQ:PRCP), a leading global provider of 3D automated metrology solutions and coordinate measuring machines, today announced its latest 3D scanning sensor family, Helix evo, for in-line and near-line applications.

Helix evo takes scanning to the next level, improving performance through faster measuring and increased overall system robustness. Inside the IP67-rated housing, Helix evo utilizes a green laser to measure the multitude of materials used in today’s manufacturing, such as chrome, aluminum, sheet metal, and painted surfaces. Its best-in-class scan acquisition provides accurate feature extraction along with the pristine scan quality required for form analysis. Helix evo also uses a single power-over-ethernet cable, which reduces the number of auxiliary components required, and is designed for fast and accurate measurement on the plant floor.

Dave Watza, Perceptron president and CEO, commented, “Helix evo is a significant evolution in our Helix sensor family, providing vastly improved point clouds and plant-hardened build quality. Helix evo provides the data our customers need for quick, real-time resolutions, whether the root cause of their quality challenge comes from their assembly or stamping process.”

Over the next several months, Perceptron will be installing Helix evo systems on the plant floors of three key customers.
