Zero-Touch measures part features and complex geometries such as bores, undercuts, and chamfers, in addition to complex surface topology, such as surface finish, color, and gloss. It features a rotating bridge 5-axis metrology platform that can achieve part inspection speeds up to 10x faster than conventional tactile CMMs. A unique bridge rotation uses multiple non-contact measuring sensors including optical, laser line scanner, and confocal technologies. Seamless Zero-Touch CAD-based measuring software provides easy generation of part measurement plans using motion path creation, simulation and sensor parameter settings with no specialized programming required. The part’s generated 3D point cloud is transmitted to Innovmetric’s popular Polyworks analysis software, creating a detailed inspection report with actionable information for improving manufacturing processes.
