InspecVision Planar 2D can be used to quickly measure or reverse engineer flat parts which have been manufactured on laser, plasma and water jet cutting systems as well as punched and some stamped parts. Planar customers range from small job shops to multibillion-dollar turnover companies covering almost every industry that uses sheet metal, such as electronics and communication industries, automotive and aerospace.

The InspecVision Opti-Scan 3D uses a high speed, high-resolution industrial camera, and an LED DLP projector to scan the surfaces of an object. Patterns of light are beamed from the projector onto the part, and these patterns are recorded by the camera and used to create surface measurements.

This system also features a back-light table to capture the silhouette of a part. This silhouette image is then converted into 3D edge measurements using the patented Planar Edge 3DTM technology. 3D edges are essential when measuring the critical features of sheet metal parts, including the hole size and position, which are defined by the part’s edges, not its surfaces.

Available in a range of sizes and accuracies, the InspecVision systems can be installed on the factory floor and are easy for staff to operate, helping to cut expensive inspection bottlenecks.
