Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Launches New Optical Scanner
7 June 2016
BLAZE 600M Blue Light Portable Measurement System Offers Improved Flexibility and Accuracy
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence today unveiled BLAZE 600M, the latest addition to its non-contact optical measurement range. Based on Hexagon’s proven white light scanner technology, augmented with new technology and functionality, BLAZE 600M is a versatile manually-operated platform for rapid 3D data acquisition and provides actionable data wherever it is needed.
An all-in-one unit combining high-resolution digital imaging with blue light LED illumination, BLAZE 600M offers precision inspection in a robust, flexible and highly-portable package that fits in a single box. The system allows a wide range of measurement field size settings and maintains high-accuracy performance even when inspecting larger areas – ensuring maximum productivity without compromising on quality. BLAZE 600M is effective even on metallic, plastic and composite parts without surface treatment, and its fast data capture rate means that environmental conditions have negligible impact on results.
The BLAZE 600M system is available in two projection configurations, enabling users to optimise the system for their application, ranging from routine inspection operations to the measurement of complex feature-rich workpieces, challenging material types, or 3D digitisation for reverse engineering applications. Operators can also directly switch between different surface data acquisition modes to ensure the best possible results for each specific task.
“The new technologies incorporated into BLAZE 600M move our optical inspection portfolio to a new level of performance,” explains Nathan Persky, General Manager – Automated Solutions Product Line at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “This system is not only more accurate than our existing range of white light scanning solutions, but also far more configurable. BLAZE 600M is very easy to set up and adapt to different part types and applications, and the additional measurement field options ensure maximum speed and productivity on the shop floor.”
BLAZE 600M is available to order worldwide from today. More information is available through local Hexagon commercial operations and dealers.
