Comprehensive metrology service provider Exact Metrology (Brookfield, Wis., U.S.) recently released the Hexagon RS6 laser scanner which is said to be designed for high-speed and accuracy scanning. According to Exact Metrology it scans up to 1.2 million points per second with a scan rate of 300 Hertz. The RS6 also offers a wider laser stripe of 150 millimeters at mid-range and a visual guide that provides real-time feedback for stand-off distance.
Built using SHINE technology (Systematic High-Intelligence Noise Elimination), Exact Metrology says the RS6 laser scanner always delivers full scanning performance, even on the most challenging surfaces. Whether it’s a glossy black plastic automotive body part or a molded carbon fiber component, this scanner is said to scan without any reduction in quality or productivity. Furthermore, SHINE enables users to scan 99% of parts without touching the scanner exposure. With repeatable mounting via the Absolute Arm 7-Axis, the scanner can be removed if necessary and replaced without need for calibration. The Hexagon RS6 laser scanner is certified ISO 10360 8 on all 7-axis RA8 Absolute Arms.
According to Exact Metrology, when compared to other scanners, the RS6 has a frame rate that is three times faster, and has a 30% wider laser stripe. With the arm mounted scanner, says the company, measurements are made easier as a result of scans with full frame, with full line width, less preparation, less set-up required and reduced settings.
