Polish 3D scanner manufacturer Evatronix has announced the launch of its latest eviXscan 3D scanner, the 3D Optima+ M.
The eviXscan 3D Optima+ M 3D scanner replaces the company’s Heavy Duty Optima model for which production ceased earlier this year, and is designed for the precise scanning of medium-sized objects. Compared to its predecessor, the Optima+ M’s scanning time is four times shorter at 1.2 seconds, and the scanning area is increased by 43 percent.
The Optima+ M is designed to be integrated into robotized measurement systems and can also be used in reverse engineering, non-contact quality control and rapid prototyping.
“We designed Optima+ M to make it as versatile as possible in various industries,” said Szymon Ścibik, leader of the R&D team at Evatronix. “Thanks to the proper selection of components, we managed to create a measuring device that achieves high accuracy results while maintaining a large scanning area.”
Evatronix’s 3D scanning range
Evatronix was founded around three decades ago as an electronics system and circuit design and delivery service. In 2008, the company repositioned itself to begin offering its own 3D scanners and related services.
In 2019, the company launched its eviXmatic inspection system engineered to provide fully automated, non-contact measurements of parts. The hardware can be used as a standalone kit or as a dock for other devices in the Evatronix portfolio.
The company’s EviXscan range is made up of a number of stationary desktop 3D scanners suitable for a variety of engineering applications.
The firm’s high-performance Heavy Duty Quadro 3D scanner features a scanning accuracy of 0.013m and is equipped with four 5MPix cameras. Thanks to its dust-proof IP62 rating, the scanner is suitable for use in harsh environments on the shop floor.
In March, Evatronix launched its eviXscan 3D FinePrecision 3D scanner primarily intended for high-precision small part scanning. The scanner is designed to meet the needs of watchmakers, jewelry professionals, and medical professionals involved with prosthetics and implants, and can also be used within quality control and predictive maintenance applications.
The EviXscan Optima+ M 3D scanner
The Optima+ M is primarily designed for the precise scanning of objects sized between 7cm and 1m. In comparison to its Heavy Duty Optima predecessor, the device’s four-times-shorter scanning time means that external conditions have less influence on the process quality of scans.
An increased scanning area of 43 percent enables a single scan to collect measurement data from a volume of 320mm x 190mm x 120mm, while maintaining high scan quality. The Optima+ M provides a high density of scanning points (117 pts/mm2) and its accuracy ranges 0.009 mm.
The scanner is equipped with high-speed 7MPix cameras and a projector that uses a modern DLP chipset to achieve more accurate measurement results despite the increased scanning range.
The Optima+ M also has a reduced distance between the scanner and the scanned object in order to improve the ease of operating the device. Additionally, Evatronix has eliminated the need for an HDMI cable in its latest iteration, with just a USB 3.0 cable needed to connect the scanner to a computer.
The Optima+ M’s light, compact design and ease of integration makes the scanner well-suited for use in robotized measurement systems, with Evatronix having already developed software to support scanner integration with the likes of Universal Robots, HAN*S, and Kuka robots. The scanner is also designed to be effective for other applications such as reverse engineering, non-contact quality control, and rapid prototyping.
The eviXscan 3D Optima+ M scanner is available for demonstration and ordering now, with first deliveries planned for July 2021.
