October 2017: Q-PLUS Labs introduces a fully automated 3D scanning solution that uses the latest cutting-edge technology in both robotics and structured light 3D scanning systems. Combining both speed and accuracy, automated 3D scanning can help accelerate the processes of manufacturing and production by improving the time it would usually take if using more traditional methods of obtaining measurement data. CMMs have long held favorability for automated inspection due to ease of programming, however they typically offer only single point by point sparse measurement data with contact probing on the part's surface. Comparatively, structured light scanning has made tremendous progress that now closely approaches the accuracies of CMMs, but captures millions of measurement points in seconds and without any contact to the part. Whether you are looking to outsource your inspection or integrate a new system within your current in-house quality process, Q-PLUS Labs offers automated 3D scanning services and products using the latest developments in robotic scanning to not only reduce the cost for inspection, but also speed up your production process.
