3D Scanner System for Factory Automation and 3D Machine Vision

3D Scanner system in our ARICC centre provides industrial 3D machine vision which can be used for factory automation and mechanical 3D design. The system includes SICK IVP RANGER camera, LASIRIS laser, FANUC S-10 robot and a computer control system with data processing software.
IVP RANGER is the ultimate 3D camera for the most advanced needs. With its extreme speed, high-quality 3D data and Camera Link or Gigabit Ethernet interface, it can be used to solve almost any in-line application where true three dimensional shape is essential for success.

Each time the system makes a measurement, it measures along a cross-section of the object in front of it. The result of a measurement is a profile, containing one value for each measured point along the cross-section- for example the height of the object along its width. For the system to measure an entire object, the RANGER Camera and laser illumination must be moved so that the RANGER camera can make a series of measurements along the object. The result of such a measurement is a collection of profiles, where each profile contains the measurement of a cross-section at a certain location along the transportation direction.
