ATOS Triple Scan

Industrial Optical 3D Digitizer

ATOS Triple Scan is a high resolution, optical digitizer that delivers rapid and precise three-dimensional measuring data for the optimization of design processes, thereby improving industrial production processes. ATOS sensors are used in many industries for the inspection of parts such as sheet metals, tools and dies, turbine blades, prototypes and injection molded and pressure die-cast parts.

ATOS Triple Scan In-Use

Automated 3D Metrology

In the standardized measuring machine ATOS ScanBox, ATOS Triple Scan 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. In the ATOS ScanBox models of series 5, 6, 7 and 8, ATOS Triple Scan can be extended with a Plus Box photogrammetry add-on. This allows bigger components or multiple parts to be measured simultaneously.

Mobile 3D metrology

Manually, ATOS Triple Scan is used with a studio stand or a desk stand. For the semi-automatic use, a 3-axis motorization kit, including a lift module for the sensor and a Tilt and Swivel Unit for the fixture, is available. Mobile rotation tables enable simple automated measurement of small to medium objects. Furthermore the GOM Touch Probe allows point-based measurement of areas that are difficult to access optically.

ATOS Triple Scan Technology

Precise fringe patterns are projected onto the surface of the object and are recorded by two cameras, based on the stereo camera principle. As the beam paths of both cameras and the projector are calibrated in advance, 3D surface points from three different ray intersections can be calculated: Visual beam camera / camera, visual beam camera on left / projected beam projector and camera on right / projected beam projector. This automatic principle offers advantages in measuring reflective surfaces and objects with indentations.

Blue Light Technology

The projection unit of the ATOS Triple Scan 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.

Self-monitoring system

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.

Virtual Measuring Room

The virtual measuring room (VMR) is the central control station and measurement planning software for all elements of the ATOS measuring cells. It offers the functional representation of a real measurement environment in a virtual simulation. Due to the VMR, the user can work with the system without the requirement for specific robot programming skills. All robot movements are simulated and checked for safety before being performed in the virtual measuring room.
