Hexagon Metrology has launched new white light measurement products. The manual measurement system Cognitens WLS400M and the automated measurement system Cognitens WLS400A replace all former white light products from Hexagon Metrology.
Users can choose between a portable configuration and an automated system which can be operated with all common industrial robots. Cognitens systems are turnkey solutions which include the software suite CoreView by Hexagon Metrology.
White light measurement uses digital stereo vision technology to generate highly accurate 3D data. This technology has especially spread throughout the global automotive industry and helps accelerating quality control.
“The new product generation comes with innovative LED technology, extremely stable carbon fibre housing and a very compact system setup”, explained Duncan Redgewell, Hexagon Metrology’s vice president for portable products. “The release of this product brings our customers another powerful metrology sensor that enables them to complete a huge variety of shop floor inspection tasks. Linking sensors like the Cognitens WLS400A to positioning devices enables us to automate many production line inspection processes."
