Perceptron Launches ScanR(TM), World's First Green CMM Laser-Line Scanner Offering Extended Dynamic Range Capable of Measuring Reflective Surfaces -- for Use With Portable and Fixed Coordinate Measuring Machines

PLYMOUTH, MI -- (Marketwired) -- May 04, 2015 -- Perceptron, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRCP) For more than 20 years Perceptron has pioneered the use of laser scanners on portable and fixed coordinate measuring machines. With the fast-growing application of 3D laser scanning for reverse engineering, production-part dimensional inspection, and as a complement to 3D printing, Perceptron has introduced the world's first green laser-line universal CMM scanner. Highly reflective materials such as machined aluminum and carbon fiber composites have always been a challenge for laser scanners, requiring part spraying with a powder coat, which severely inhibits its practical use on repetitive production parts.

The new generation of ScanR CMM Laser Scanner represents a technological breakthrough solving many of the age-old application problems associated with laser scanning and provides the following enhanced performances:

  • Enhanced dynamic range (Wider coverage of color spectrum and reflectivity)
  • Improved material coverage (Carbon fiber, polished metal, plated metal)
  • Increased accuracy (Thinner laser line with higher signal to noise ratio)
  • Improved edge detection (Sub-pixel optimization)
  • Adjustable data acquisition rate for HQ (high quality) and HS (high speed) operation
  • Large field of view and depth of view

ScanR is seamlessly integrated into Perceptron's TouchDMIS metrology software, offering a simple one-touch scanning interface and allowing initial user set-up using tactile-probe with subsequent sharing of the generated part coordinate system. Feature extraction from the generated point cloud allows automatic inspection of part features against nominal feature definitions selected from CAD. Production parts can be programmed to be inspected automatically with scanning zone and parameters adjusted per feature for data acquisition and cycle time optimization.

Perceptron's CEO Jeff Armstrong states, "Perceptron has been a leader and innovator in the field of CMM laser scanning and measurement for more than 20 years. The launch of the new ScanR Universal CMM Laser Scanner extends our leadership position and fully exploits the business synergies of the COORD3 CMM and Next Metrology Software acquisitions executed earlier this year."
