Exact Metrology Named Distributor of HandsOnMetrology

New measuring systems become more widely available

Published: Tuesday, August 30, 2022 - 11:01

(Exact Metrology: Brookfield, Wisconsin) -- Exact Metrology, a division of In-Place Machining Co. and a comprehensive 3D metrology service provider and hardware sales company, recently announced it has become the North American distributor of HandsOnMetrology. HandsOnMetrology.com has been set up to share the benefits of 3D metrology with a global community. As a representative of this new 3D scanning network, Exact Metrology will be available to U.S. companies that want to optimize quality control processes with state-of-the art 3D scanning and automation solutions. 

Available at both the Brookfield (suburban Milwaukee) and Cincinnati locations, the HandsOnMetrology portfolio offers measuring systems including GOM Scan 1, ATOS Q, T-SCAN 10/20, and the hand-held T SCAN hawk 3D scanner. Exact Metrology also offers the GOM ScanCobot automation solution. 

GOM Scan 1 delivers the foundation for detailed and accurate 3D meshes with industrial standards such as GOM fringe projection and blue light technology. Easy to operate and delivering 3D data with high precision, the scanner is ideal for simple and fast measurements of small to medium-sized parts, even in confined spaces. With pre-installed GOM Inspect software, users can generate precise meshes and obtain 3D data easily and quickly.  

ATOS Q is a flexible 3D scanner for complex measurement and inspection tasks in different industries. The scanner delivers fully traceable measurement results, especially in harsh conditions. Optical and electronic systems of the robust, optical 3D sensor are dust-proof and splash-proof. ATOS Q captures quality information quickly and with a high degree of detail, providing a reliable basis to easily interpret the information. Its Triple Scan Principle offers advantages for measuring reflective surfaces and objects with indentations. The Blue Light Equalizer enables high-speed fringe projection and is so powerful that, on dimensionally challenging surfaces, short measuring times can be achieved.  

The compact, hand-held 3D scanner T-SCAN hawk captures data whenever needed with technical features such as photogrammetry of large objects, multiple laser sources, and three scanning models, making it well-suited for fine detail. Thanks to the GOM Inspect onboard, the T-SCAN hawk simplifies your entire workflow, from scanning to evaluation and reporting.  

The GOM ScanCobot, a mobile, automated 3D scanning system, easily integrates with ATOS Q. With the high-precision quality of ATOS combined with an automated robotic arm, the GOM ScanCobot is cost-effective and easy to use, improving efficiency in quality control of small to medium-sized parts, including plastics, fabricated metals, and castings. The combination of the GOM ScanCobot and the proven ATOS performance results in fast fringe projection, data processing, high throughput, and a design ideal for industrial use.
