ZeroTouch® Flexible Metrology System

A flexible metrology system for processing complex geometries in just a fraction of time versus traditional technologies.

A high-speed, non-contact metrology and inspection platform, the ZeroTouch® Flexible Metrology System rapidly captures millions of data points to create a high-precision 3D point cloud, enabling rapid measurement of complex part geometries and precise inspection of most intricate parts with low GR&R.

Improved Accuracy

ZeroTouch® uses multiple sensors to generate a high-density, 3D point cloud to improve quality.

Increase Throughput

ZeroTouch® increases production throughput by executing inspection plans in seconds versus minutes.

Advances Production

ZeroTouch® advances production capabilities by performing in-line inspection of the entire part surface.

Features & Benefits

  • Rapid 3D micron-level precision point cloud generation
  • High repeatability
  • GD&T measurements of complex geometries such as chamfers, knife edges, undercuts, and bores
  • Configurable metrology sensor bridge, including laser, confocal sensors, and high-resolution cameras with multi-spectral lighting
  • Advanced analytics integration with application specific tools
  • Simple part inspection programming
  • Rapid identification of production defects enables upstream process optimization
  • Ease of part fixturing reduces setup time per part

Minimize Tolerance Stack Error

ZeroTouch®’s unique planar air bearing design minimizes tolerance stack error. By providing extremely smooth, high-speed motion of precision stages, this near-zero friction design ensures more consistent performance, minimizing mechanical wear and improving GR&R.

Advanced Analytics Integration

Through industry proven and recognized analytics software, parts can be analyzed by comparing point cloud scans with nominal CAD models and GD&T controls. Statistical process control (SPC) data can drive warnings to reduce variability and scrap.

Graphical Part Inspection Planning

Graphical, menu-driven part inspection planning tools eliminate the need for specialized programming. Plans can be launched easily by recalling the program from MES, or via an optional barcode reader.
