HP-L laser scanners deliver maximum performance for complex surfaces and workpieces made of materials that are difficult to measure. These flexible laser scanners turn every coordinate measuring machine (CMM) into an optical multisensor system. The main applications include checking the features and characteristics of sheet metal parts, and measuring freeform surfaces of castings or other components in the automotive and aerospace industries.
HP-L uses Flying-Dot Technology, providing an excellent optical dynamic range that is superior to conventional line scanners as the light intensity is automatically adjusted for point by point. This means that HP-L laser scanners are less sensitive to ambient light and surface changes, and generate point clouds of high quality and reliability. In addition, the line width can be varied from 24 mm to 124 mm as required. The point-to-point distance varies depending on the chosen line width.
Equipped with HP-L laser scanners, CMMs turn into multisensor machines, performing even the most challenging measurement applications by combining traditional tactile probing with optical measurements such as surface capture or optical feature measurement – all in one part program.
HP-L laser scanners fully conform to the latest ISO 10360-8:2013 standard. The measurements rely on traceable sphere and plane artefacts. Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence also supplies the necessary artefacts – certified by an accredited laboratory – for on-site verification of sensor results, to provide the highest confidence in optical probing.
