Through the combination of contact and non-contact measuring sensors, Optiv CMMs have the advantages of several sensors into a single multisensor system. It is now possible to carry out a wide range of measuring tasks on a part using the sensor most suitable for each task. Multisensor technology removes the need to invest in a host of different measuring machines.
The vision sensor is an image-processing measurement sensor for Optiv CMMs. It performs non-contact measurements on the smallest features subject to the tightest tolerances. It is ideal for avoiding deformations in delicate materials.
The through-the-lens laser (TTL laser) and an image-processing vision sensor share the same optical path. This coaxial principle allows seamless switching between camera and laser.
The chromatic white light sensor (CWS) is a highly efficient scanning sensor. It is based on the confocal measurement principle and works using chromatic depth scanning.
