Our Cobots combine a collaborative 6-axis robot arm and a robust optical 3D measurement sensor to deliver traceable and repeatable high-resolution measurements, even in production. They require no prior knowledge of metrology and make handling, programming and executing measurement series easy. This is made possible by intuitive hand-guided controls for the teach-in of measurement series, automatic measurement evaluation, and a no-enclosures safety concept. As a result, Cobots are ideal for verifying the surface state and dimensional accuracy of work pieces in existing production environments. Users verify surface quality and dimensional accuracy of small features on large components. Examples from the Cobot series are the DiscCobot, the TurbineCobot or the CompactCobot, which are used in the aircraft, automotive and tooling industries for industrial quality assurance. Users also benefit from the high mobility and flexibility of collaborative systems, as Cobots can be positioned as required due to their mobile design. This allows users to measure their components directly in the machine tool.
The DiscCobot is used for the quality assurance of large rotationally symmetric components up to 120 kg. In particular, the Cobot is applied in the standardized evaluation of edge breaks. By verifying minimal radii, it prevents sharp edges that can, in the worst case, compromise aircraft safety. The DiscCobot is used in the aircraft industry for the measurement of e.g. turbine housings and turbine discs as well as in the tool industry e.g. for the cutting edge measurement of saw blades.
