In car manufacturing, countless elements such as boreholes, sections or threaded bolts have to be measured, including the finished vehicles themselves. For new vehicles, parts must be analyzed quickly and accurately. The requirements are very challenging and inspections are extremely time-consuming – particularly for serial inspection.
The ZEISS FalconEye optical sensor system, which is modeled on the technology of the ZEISS EagleEye navigator, overcomes these challenges, as it can be additionally used on stepping, articulating probe holders.
To obtain the required measuring results quickly and easily, the sensor has to be optimally integrated into the overall system. The RDS-CAA stepping, articulating probe holder is ideal because only a few single positions have to be calibrated, but all angular settings are available for the application. This enables a considerable reduction in measuring times.
Through the utilization of an additional manual rotary axis, the ZEISS FalconEye system can be positioned in three angular settings with very accurate repeatability, permitting the laser line to be aligned relative to the part. Therefore, the sensor provides users with an outstanding system to quickly and accurately complete their jobs. The new ZEISS FalconEye system has also been optimally integrated into the CALIGO software package.
