A new feature to augment our laser scanning subsystem, our Instant Scan allows simple and easy scenario tests and verifications. By using a "virtual knife", the user can draw a line of interest on a model part from an imported CAD file. The system scans and displays the vitual cross-section of the line without any programming or part destruction. Traditionally, an object might be cross-sectioned and then examined with an optical comparator to verify component quality (for parting lines, for example) or dimensional height (gaskets). New Precision can now quickly obtain this information non-destructively with our non-contact laser measurement system at speeds reasonable for 100% in-line production inspection.
