Automated measurements using industrial 3D scanner from SMARTTECH
12 October 2021
SMARTTECH has established cooperation with KUKA AG. The outcome of this cooperation is a new product, an automated quality control system – SMARTTECH3D Robotised. This system enables user automation of the full quality control process, starting from customisation of the measurement plan, through CAD comparison, up to control report in pdf format – all in one software environment.
Over the years, the Polish manufacturer has implemented its scanners in factories of such brands as Boeing, General Electric or NASA, and in many institutes and universities around the world. With help of a KUKA arm and developed software, the scanning process became fully automated.
The system operated directly in dedicated SMARTTECH software, allowing for automatic implementation of quality control and reverse engineering processes. The heart of the system is a 3D scanner in stereoscopic technology with the highest resolution on the market – 20 MP. This allows reproduction of the finest details of the scanned object and the detection of defects that could be invisible even to the human eye.
SMARTTECH3D Robotised will work both on the production lines, and in design offices to modify existing products. The integration of the 3D scanner with the KUKA KR CYBERTECH NANO arm (range of 1.5m) makes it possible to scan medium and small details. It is equipped with a rotary table of a load capacity of up to 300kg that further accelerates the measurement process. Dedicated SMARTTECH3D measure application is used to control the scanning process and perform post processing of the measurement data. The program includes an intuitive module for measurement plan creation for various measured objects and quality control module giving the ability to generate customised control in PDF format.
"SMARTTECH3D Robotised combines the capabilities of a precision 3D scanner and a KUKA industrial robot – it is an easy-to-use, integrated 3D scanning system designed for non-contact digitisation and quality control. In addition to measuring, our scanners can display colour deviations maps compared to CAD directly on the scanned object. This is very helpful when locating defects on products," informs Rafal Zak, Export Manager at SMARTTECH3D.
The first SMARTTECH3D Robotised has been implemented in the airline industry on a production line in China. The official market launch is planned in November and already after first sneak-peek information SMARTTECH gets numerous enquiries from distributors and clients worldwide. Pre-orders for the system can be already placed and next devices will be delivered by the end of this year.
The SMARTTECH company is opened for cooperation with integrators and partners from around the world to prepare customised solutions based on its 3D scanning solutions.
