EVT releases EyeScan ML 3D scanner

April 8, 2016 - EVT releases EyeScan ML 3D, a laser triangulation sensor for scanning profiles and for applications such as solder paste inspection, gap inspection, profile measurement, evaluation of thickness, width measurement, etc.

EyeVision image processing software for the ML 3D contains special 3D commands, which can not only capture an image but also can convert them into 2 ½ D images and can generate and evaluate 16-Bit point clouds. The EyeVision software is a graphically programmable machine vision software to solve measurement and inspection tasks.

The EyeScan ML 3D offers an accurate z-resolution of up to 0,0025 mm and  x-resolution of up to 0,021 mm.

An example is soldering pipelines, where long steel stripes are pressed into a pipe and the gap is soldered. With the EyeScan ML 3D a scan line is created across the solder line and with the EyeVision 3D software the scanner data is evaluated and sent to the motor control unit.

Also the gap inspection is easily handled with the EyeScan ML 3D sensor. For example for the quality control of car body parts and doors of cars and other vehicles a 3D sensor is necessary for visual as well as aerodynamic reasons.
