This scanner, the FlatScope, is offered for fast, precise, and reliable inspection of flat work pieces and extrusion profiles in a production environment. The main area of application is in the measurement of complex profiles (e.g., rubber, plastic, or aluminium profiles), as well as stamped parts, laser cut profiles, and circuit boards. The features of the scanner are based upon proven designs in its mechanical construction. This enables workpieces to be measured with the smallest uncertainty. The measuring range of this reasonably priced series of machines is up to 650 mm. Larger measuring ranges can be supplied upon request. The system is equipped with an image processing sensor with telecentric or zoom optics as required. By using the unique Zoom, constructed with linear guideways, a high level of accuracy can be achieved.
