Cimtec Engineered Products is pleased to announce the release of ‘Cimtec3D’ software paired with 3D laser line profile sensors and cameras. This capability allows us and our customers to move beyond the traditional 2D image inspection to the realm of true 3 dimensional surface inspection.
The 3D laser line profile sensors and cameras provide a scan of the part or surface outputting the full x, y, and z data to Cimtec3D. They are precalibrated sensors that house the camera imager and laser line generator together for very precise real-world readings. Cimtec3D has the ability to view and analyze a surface profile-by-profile, or stitch them altogether to view as a ‘whole part’ scan in a 16-bit grayscale image. Statistical analysis and other image preprocessing is also applied to the image for nominal surface detection.
The 3D inspection finds surface flaws and reports their location in x, y, and z along with size characteristics such as: area, length, elongation, spread, and volume. After inspection, you have the ability to save the 16-bit images with or without the graphical results, and the ability to save the data to csv file.
Lastly, the GUI can be customized for your application and need, including a run-time display with operator interface.
