HP-L-10.6 Laser Scanner
The HP-L laser scanning sensor provides many benefits for metrology in a complete and powerful turnkey package via rapid point-cloud capture, including: Feature inspection to CAD, free form surface inspection to CAD and reverse engineering
HP-L-10.6 - 3D point scanning at its best
HP-L laser scanners deliver maximum performance for complex surfaces and workpieces made of materials that are difficult to measure. These flexible laser scanners turn every coordinate measuring machine (CMM) into an optical multisensor system. The main applications include checking the features and characteristics of sheet metal parts, and measuring freeform surfaces of castings or other components in the automotive and aerospace industries.
HP-L uses Flying-Dot Technology, providing an excellent optical dynamic range that is superior to conventional line scanners as the light intensity is automatically adjusted for point by point. This means that HP-L laser scanners are less sensitive to ambient light and surface changes, and generate point clouds of high quality and reliability. In addition, the line width can be varied from 24 mm to 124 mm as required. The point-to-point distance varies depending on the chosen line width.
Equipped with HP-L laser scanners, CMMs turn into multisensor machines, performing even the most challenging measurement applications by combining traditional tactile probing with optical measurements such as surface capture or optical feature measurement – all in one part program.
HP-L laser scanners fully conform to the latest ISO 10360-8:2013 standard. The measurements rely on traceable sphere and plane artefacts. Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence also supplies the necessary artefacts – certified by an accredited laboratory – for on-site verification of sensor results, to provide the highest confidence in optical probing.
Automatic Identification of Features Out of the Point Cloud in PC-DMIS CAD++
Feature extraction using PC-DMIS CAD++ software allows a combination of tactile measurements with automated feature measurements from the cloud of points captured with HP-L.
High-Quality Point-Cloud Data
Real-time laser power control automatically adjusts the light intensity; this unique technology allows the laser intensity to be optimised 10 times during measurement of every single point.
Reliable Measurement of Complex Surfaces
HP-L scanners are suitable for measuring almost any material, including machined, semi-finished, stamped, forged, cast, painted metals, sand cores, carbon fibre, plastics, clay, rubber, wood and ceramics.
Fully Compatible with Probe Changers for Multisensor Measurement
A multisensor CMM combines high-accuracy probing with non-contact measurements. Changes within the process, such as powder spraying or part loading and unloading are no longer necessary.
Variable Optical Resolution and User-Selectable Line Length
Perfect for quick surface inspection of large areas or measurement of small isolated features, HP-L offers a real zoom feature by varying the spaces between the individual dots, not just clipping the line on each end.
