Optical Precision Measuring Machine
The fringe projection system of the ATOS series is used for production quality assurance of small to medium-sized parts and excels by its high precision for fine details. ATOS Capsule is utilized, for example, for first article inspection of gears, turbine blades and wheels as well as medical parts.
With its unique housing design, the ATOS Capsule provides process stability for automated applications. The precisely manufactured aluminium-cast uni-body housing ensures maximum stiffness allowing precise measuring results, protecting its optics and electronics against dust and splashing water.
Triple Scan Technology
Using both cameras, the projection unit operates according to the triple scan principle. During the measurement, precise fringe patterns are projected onto the surface of the object and are recorded by two cameras.This automatic principle offers advantages in measuring reflective surfaces or objects with complex indentations.
Blue Light Technology
The projection unit of the ATOS Capsule system is based on Blue Light Technology. Since the sensor works with narrow-band blue light, interfering ambient light can be filtered during image acquisition. Due to its powerful light source, short measuring times can be achieved.
The sensor recognizes changing ambient conditions during operation and is able to compensate these changes. To do so, the software of the sensor is continuously monitoring the calibration status, the transformation accuracy, environmental changes and part movements to ensure the quality of the measuring data.
ATOS Capsule In-Use
In the standardized setup of ATOS ScanBox, the ATOS Capsule is used for fully automated measuring and inspection of parts. The ATOS ScanBox is a complete optical 3D measuring machine that was developed by GOM for an efficient quality control in production and manufacturing processes. The ATOS Capsule can also be operated as a manual system.
