EDM Intelligent Solutions (EDMIS), an authorized Fanuc robot system integrator, has introduced a flexible, easy to use solution for use in industrial metrology applications including dimensional measurement, surface finish inspection, complex geometry measurements and pass/fail production inspection.
Utilizing a Fanuc 6-Axis robotic platform with a 7th rotary axis integrated in the RSH-M10’s base, the 3D metrology sensors are easily positioned to capture data from almost any angle. The system can be configured with 2D machine vision cameras, 3D area sensors, laser line scanners, line scanning cameras, focus variation sensors and confocal sensors dependant upon the specific measurement application.
Typical requirements of complex and hands on programming of the measurement and inspection tasks have been eliminated and replaced with a user friendly, menu-based interface found in the Foundation Programming Environment from EDMIS. Customized 3D model-based measurement and inspection programs are automatically generated off part CAD model of the part to be inspected. The user simply uploads the solid model, selects the areas to measure and a robot inspection program is automatically created.
“The RSH-M10 gives our customers a simple and intuitive solution to their demanding industrial metrology and measurement tasks. This collaboration with FANUC America joins their world class …
