Exact Metrology Offers RS6 Laser Scanner

Scan 99% of parts without touching the scanner exposure

Published: Tuesday, October 6, 2020 - 11:00

(Exact Metrology: Cincinnati) -- Exact Metrology, a comprehensive metrology service provider, recently released the Hexagon RS6 laser scanner, designed for high-speed and accuracy scanning. It scans up to 1.2 million points/sec with a scan rate of 300 Hz. The RS6 also has a wider laser stripe of 150 mm at mid-range and a visual guide that provides real-time feedback for standoff distance.

Built using SHINE technology (Systematic High-Intelligence Noise Elimination), the RS6 laser scanner always delivers full scanning performance, even on the most challenging surfaces. Whether it’s a glossy, black, plastic automotive body part or a molded carbon-fiber component, this scanner scans without any reduction in quality or productivity. Furthermore, SHINE allows users to scan 99 percent of parts without touching the scanner exposure. With repeatable mounting (using the Absolute Arm 7-Axis), the scanner can be removed if necessary and replaced without need for calibration. The Hexagon RS6 laser scanner is certified to ISO 10360-8 on all 7-axis RA8 Absolute Arms.

When compared to other scanners, the RS6 has 3x faster frame rate, 30-percent wider laser stripe, and excellent scanning performance on difficult surfaces with SHINE. With the arm mounted scanner, it is easier to measure due to less preparation, less setup, less settings, and scans with full frame, with full-line width, all the time.
