HIGHEST FLEXIBILITY AND IMPRESSIVE PERFORMANCE
World premiere at CONTROL in Stuttgart: WENZEL presented from 26th to 29th of April the WENZEL SHAPETRACER II in Hall 5, Stand 5204 for the first time. It is a highly flexible 3D line scanner for capturing and processing of point clouds on a multisensor coordinate measuring machine. The optical sensor is integrated into the WENZEL PointMaster software package and provides high-quality, accurate and repeatable results.
The WENZEL SHAPETRACER II sets benchmarks in the field of digitization. Compared to the previous model a performance increase of over 400 % has been achieved by increasing the measurement range and measurement speed. With a stripe length of up to 120 mm the 3D laser scanner captures even more data in shorter time.
HIGH MEASURING THROUGHPUT AND LARGE MEASURING RANGE
The WENZEL SHAPETRACER II offers a short stand-off distance of only 90 mm and a working range of 120 mm. Compared to the market these are outstanding values. Because the sensor scans very close to the workpiece the measurement range is used optimally. As a result the WENZEL SHAPETRACER II is ideally suited for testing small parts, as well as for the measurement of large-volume components.
Through the use of a blue laser line and a better resolution, a higher tolerance against critical surface structures has been achieved. By using a lens and ambient light filter the WENZEL SHAPETRACER II works independently from external light and has great flexibility for scanning differing workpiece colors.
MULTISENSOR OPERATION FOR EFFECTIVE MEASUREMENT
By adapting the WENZEL SHAPETRACER II to the PH10 motorized indexing head from Renishaw the sensor can carry a range of probes and extensions and can be orientated in 720 repeatable positions, giving access to the most difficult-to-reach workpiece features.
Because the calibration data of the 3D line scanner are stored on a smart camera system, the installation is very easy. The connection to the coordinate measuring machine is done through a fully integrated multi-sensor interface, providing the possibility of multi-sensor operation of optical and tactile measurement, which guarantees effective measurement solutions for every application
VARIOUS DIGITIZING AND MEASURING APPLICATIONS
The WENZEL SHAPETRACER II is driven by the PointMaster software package. WENZEL PointMaster has a modular structure and includes functional modules for reverse engineering, measurement and evaluation and iterative tool compensation. Firmware updates can be loaded easily through a sensor which is mounted at the autojoint.
The WENZEL SHAPETRACER 3D line scanner changes a coordinate measuring machine into the ideal tool to record and handle point clouds. Perfect for tool and die making, design model construction and anyone who needs to record and work on surfaces and outlines of physical objects.
