qFLASH-A 3D optical measurement system by Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence

Hexagon Launches Compact Robotic Measurement System, qFLASH-A 3D optical measurement system

qFLASH-A is a compact and economical 3D optical measurement system designed for use in smaller automated shop-floor inspection cells.

qFLASH-A is a compact and economical 3D optical measurement system designed for use in smaller automated shop-floor inspection cells. Compatible with a wide range of industrial robots including small-load and collaborative robot systems, qFLASH-A measurement cells have a small footprint and offer an affordable way to automate dimensional data capture for all kinds of part. The system is ideal for use in workshop conditions where space is at a premium but productivity matters.

The robust yet lightweight qFLASH-A sensor combines the digital imaging technology of three CMOS cameras with blue light LED illumination and dynamic slide projection technology to create a high-speed inspection solution. It delivers a high frame rate and wide dynamic range to quickly and accurately digitise freeform parts without surface treatment, preparation or the use of markers. Part features are also accurately captured thanks to advanced image analysis and edge detection engines, so users can obtain rich point-cloud data for a wide range of workpieces.

3D optical measurement system ideal for shop-floor applications

With qFLASH-A, projection and image capture take place within milliseconds, protecting the system from the impact of workshop vibrations or changes in ambient light and ensuring high-quality results whatever the conditions. This makes the qFLASH-A 3D optical measurement system ideally suited to shop-floor applications, enabling you to save the time and effort of moving parts from the workshop for measurement.

qFLASH-A is certified to VDI/VDE standards and ships with CoreView metrology software as standard.
