Structured Light with Triangulation Angle.
The Functional Principle.

The 3D sensors project several patterns onto the object to be measured and then record them by means of a camera. As a result, the object is digitalized as a 3D point cloud. Neither the object nor the 3D sensor is in motion, which means that scanning is conducted quickly and extremely precisely.

2) Light Engine
3) X, Y = Measuring Range
4) Z = Working Range

Top Performance in Three Dimensions

The 3D sensors included in the ShapeDrive series offer a high dynamic range with reference to the object’s color and brightness. The sensors deliver reliable results even for metallic and glossy surfaces. ShapeDrive sensors detect even the smallest component features thanks to their extremely high resolution, as well as large measuring volumes –for example, the entire content of Euro boxes and Euro pallets can be quickly scanned.
Simultaneous measurement of signal strength makes it possible to generate high-contrast grey tone images. Amongst other things, these can be used for the detection of data matrix codes and barcodes or contamination on objects – without any additional hardware.
