Proof Of Concepts

We understand that 3D Vision can be perceived to be complex and its benefits not fully appreciated. These perceptions can be a deterrent to giving it due consideration, when undertaking your next project.Our purpose is to simplify the implementation of a 3D Vision solution, using an intuitive step process.We offer a variety of options that can help with resolving your requirements, should you consider 3D Vision as part of your next solution.

Example

Let us relate to a real-life example:A customer has a part assembly that requires various features, such as the part profile, surface deformations, to be determined and the results compared against a reference or set of quality criteria. A 3D based Vision solution is ideal for this scenario.

Help

However, the customer may not be au fait with the 3D Vision technology currently available and its benefits. They may not have integrated such a solution prior and feel that they don’t know where to start. This is where we can help….

Configure

With any project we want to start visualising the data from the 3D sensor as soon as possible. Our platform called SensorView, allows us to quickly integrate any 3D sensor. This allows us to get meaningful results back to you early in the project.

Configuration Phase

We have developed SensorView, a Vision platform, that allows the configuration of any 3D Vision sensor, integrated with any motion system (if required), replete with a detailed suite of analysis tools. In effect, this allows us to create a design concept, employing the correct hardware and software tools, enabling the customer to quickly make decisions germane to the direction of the project. The result for the customer is a detailed Proof of Concept, exposing the potential costs, risks, route to deployment along the way.

Appropriate Sensor

We initially review the part/assembly, in conjunction with the customer User Requirements Specification. This allows us to understand the nuances of the part and determine the appropriate 3D Vision sensor. There are a myriad of sensor technologies of various hues available. We can determine the most applicable sensor, compatible with the part, having reviewed the customer specification.

Motion

Not all end solutions centre around a static sensor. We can integrate any motion system as part of the design. This may be a simple XY stage or a high-end motion platform, whereby, accuracy, resolution and repeatability are paramount. Again, we can quickly merge the specific motion platform, thus creating a scan system in an abridged timeline.

SensorView is the umbilical between the sensing, motion, analysis, and production.

Analyse

This stage is iterative. We make use of all the available filters that have been developed to create a bespoke solution, all using standard & validated filters. Each filter can be visualised and provides instant feedback in how well it is performing with the Sensor data.

SensorView

Now we can acquire the part profile and associated parameters, turning to the Analysis phase. Normally this entails the use of a third-party analysis software. We obviate the need for such, as SensorView has a vault of analysis tools. These inbuilt features allow for detailed part analysis. Such a varied feature set provides basic measurement profiles, through to complex part sectioning. Should a need arise for a non-standard profiling analysis, we can design and tailor extraction modules particular to the customer requirement.

Deploy

Need help with just part of your 3D vision project?Have personnel that can do the heavy lifting but need support on a 3D project to make sure the project completes on time, within budget and with minimal risk? We have a range of kits that enable you to accelerate your project. We'll be adding kits to the website over time but if you don't see what you are looking for, please reach out to us. We work with companies all over the world helping them deploy their 3D Inspection & Measurement solution.

Production Floor

Based on the previous steps, we have arrived at a design concept, which includes the various components that marry together, providing the forward direction of the project. The next phase is at the discretion of the customer, as they have been presented with the optimum design shell. This has been accomplished in a cost-effective and labour-saving manner, minimising the decision-making timeline.
