IBS Quality launched the PAM-System, a portable cobot-based 3D scanning and measurement solution. The launch is in collaboration with Verisurf and its integrated 3D measurement software. All hardware (including fixtures for sensor attachments to the robot), software, installation, service, and support are included with the system. The entire solution is self-contained on a specially designed inspection cart that can be easily rolled from the quality lab to the shop floor. Inspection plans are created by importing any CAD model, using drawings, a golden part, or key features. The inspection plans can be used across the manufacturing enterprise on any CMM, providing repeatable process control.
Partnering with Nikon and having integrated their technology, the handheld 3D scanner M-Scan 120 of Metronor combines Nikon’s experience in scanning and Metronor’s knowledge in tracking and navigation.
