3D scan Turning objects back into data

From object to data representation – 1zu1 does it for you. We scan your objects and create a digital 3D object from them. In a short time, measurement results are generated for each scanned component with an accuracy of up to 0.01 mm. This 3D data is used for quality assurance, reverse engineering, rapid prototyping or to build digital archives.

3D scanner Atos Triple Scan from GOM

Our Atos Triple Scan 3D scanner from GOM provides a quick status of dimensional accuracy. Color comparison images immediately reveal deviations between the original data set and the component over the entire object (best fit). Time-consuming individual measurements can therefore be eliminated. Since computed tomography has been in use, the strength of the GOM scan lies in its use for components larger than about 150 mm

Your advantages

  • Blue Light Technology
  • Stereo camera system with high-resolution measuring cameras (8 million points per image).
  • Optical and also tactile measurement for hard-to-reach places with a GOM accessory (probe)
  • Full-surface 3D scanning
  • Integrated monitoring of measurement tasks
  • Comprehensive process reliability thanks to integrated monitoring of the measurement tasks

Full 3D capture and comparison with the original 3D data model enables real-time analysis between target and actual. Comparison images quickly and clearly reveal any deviations in terms of dimensional accuracy, distortion, sink marks or spring-back of sheet-metal parts. A color comparison of the 3D scan (“actual”) to the original CAD data set (“target”) enables a quick assessment of deviations and distortions.

From tiny electronic components to small objects and large models – anything is possible. Reference marks are used to correlate individual images. For example, the scan of a 2-meter object can also be produced with an accuracy of +/- 0.06 mm.

Additional individual measurements, such as shape-position tolerance, parallelism, coaxiality, distances, cuts, etc. enable measurements at any point. The results can also be output in tabular form just like tactile measurement protocols.

Comprehensive measurement data is even possible for painted components, glossy surfaces and sharp edges.

A complete three-dimensional image of the scanned object can be created. Measurements can therefore be made retrospectively at any point on the component – without the need for an actual component. This provides security for measuring points that are not even known at the time of the test report, even if the component is no longer available. STL data is archived at 1zu1 free of charge and it is possible to perform another or a new test at any time.

In a short time, the measurement results for each scanned component are available with an accuracy of up to 0.01 mm – depending on the size of the component.  With the help of color comparison images, you can immediately detect any deviations between the original data set and the component over the entire object. Complex individual measuring points can be omitted, but are possible at any point. This allows a decision to be made immediately as to whether deviations are still acceptable or already outside the requirement. In other words: quality control at a glance.
