GOM showcases latest ATOS addition

At the recent Advanced Manufacturing show in Birmingham, UK, GOM shone the spotlight on its fifth generation of ATOS sensors for 3D scanning over large measuring areas.

The ATOS 5 and ATOS 5X are fast and precise following the introduction of new features and developments. For instance, the Blue Light Equalizer has been developed especially for the light source in the ATOS 5 to make the system independent of ambient light conditions. The ATOS 5X takes this a step further with the introduction of a laser light compressor to generate ultra-bright light for the scanning process.
More speed and light in cameras allows for a shorter exposure time, with scan times down to 0.2 seconds per measurement and 100 frames per second.
As a result of this new technology, both systems achieve high-precision data for a diverse range of manual and automated applications, from tools and moulds, to plastic and metal parts. With the ability to scan small scale items such as aerofoil components, up to full car body inspection, the ATOS 5 is flexible and capable over multiple applications. At the same time, fixture design can be simplified as a larger surface is captured and fewer reference points are required.
The trend for automated measuring is supported by installing the ATOS system inside an ATOS Scanbox. This option combines all the functions in one automated measuring machine. What’s more, by utilising Virtual Measuring Room software, the measurement environment is represented in a virtual simulation. All robot movements are simulated and checked for safety before being performed in the actual environment.
