Turnkey Structured Light 3D Measurement Cell from Hexagon
PartInspect L is the First Automated Measurement System Based on AICON Scanner Technology.
Today sees the worldwide launch of PartInspect L; the first automated 3D measurement cell product based on AICON scanner technology from Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division. Featuring a choice of structured-light scanning technology paired with a flexible robot arm and housed within a modular cell format; PartInspect L uses advanced automation expertise to meet increased demand for high-speed; high-quality part measurement and analysis.
The system features interactive automated scan planning; as well as robot path generation and collision avoidance systems based on CAD data that deliver a truly automated 3D measurement experience; from planning and scanning through to analysis and reporting.
“This new measurement cell format for our AICON scanner technology makes their high-speed measurement capabilities more efficient and easier to deploy;” says Dr Dirk Rieke-Zapp; Commercial Product Manager for AICON Scanners and Automation at Hexagon. “With PartInspect L; high-speed quality control can be moved into the production space without the need for advanced training for all shop-floor users; offering significant productivity enhancement.”
Preassembled and configured in the factory; PartInspect L delivers ‘plug-and-play’ functionality that allows for set-up within less than two working days and requires no engineering work onsite. The cell will deliver full and fast 3D inspection results for parts measuring up 1.5 metres in diameter/height and weighing up to 2000 kilograms. PartInspect L can be used either offline; near-line or at-line to deliver full or statistical quality control as required.
The system is available in two configurations – Efficient or HiEnd – making use of the several options within the AICON Scanner range. The Efficient configuration features the entry-level AICON PrimeScan; while the HiEnd configuration features the top-of-the-range AICON StereoScan neo. Both configurations can be augmented with the DPA Online photogrammetry add-on for increased measurement accuracy and control.
PartInspect L is now available to order from local Hexagon representatives around the world; with the first units shipping in May 2019.
Sponge City project realized in China
Grundfos plays an important part in the development of Sponge Cities in China. The first concrete outcome is a project realized in Fuzhou to combat pollution.
Serious pollution problems in inland rivers have left their stamp on the urban area of Fuzhou.
That is why pollution control became a top priority in the first implemented Sponge City pilot project. The project includes integrated intelligent Grundfos pump gates, making remote monitoring and dynamic adjustment of water levels possible.
According to Yang Guang, Vice President of Beijing Enterprises Water Group, one of the Sponge City project partners, black and smelly water has always been the biggest challenge of water resources in Fuzhou.
During the launch celebration he said: “The project delivered this time has provided innovative solutions that will greatly improve the living environment of the residents in Fuzhou, especially the coastal residents.”
Helle Meinertz, the Danish Ambassador to China, characterized the project as groundbreaking and an important milestone for the exchange of green technology between China and Denmark.
“It is believed that the rich experience in water treatment technology of Grundfos can provide a valuable reference for China to cope with the challenges of water resources,” she said.
Strong media interest
During a Water Summit, arranged in the same week as the celebration of the first pump gate system, a 2018 China Sponge City White Paper, jointly published by Global Water Intelligence, GWI, and Grundfos, was formally released.
The activities caught media attention both regionally and nationally, and in an interview Catherine Yang, Regional Managing Director of Grundfos China, emphasized:
“Grundfos is committed to becoming a powerful partner for construction of Sponge Cities in China. In the future, we will continue to use the technology of Industry 4.0 to integrate the digitization, interconnection and cloud technologies to create intelligent products and solutions, which will help China cope with the challenges of water resources better, and promote the construction of a digital China and beautiful China.”
New electrohydraulic cylinder from Eaton
Power management company Eaton has today announced the launch of a new electrohydraulic cylinder featuring valve integration. The new product comprises a high-performance industrial cylinder, precision feedback transducer and control valve in one package to create a single-source solution which offers significant cost savings over custom assemblies. “With our latest electrohydraulic cylinder, customers and distributors no longer need to buy and assemble multiple components,” said Andreas Kling, Business Development Manager Power & Controls Products, EMEA, Eaton. “Our new cylinder is a complete system with the customer’s valve of choice pre-mounted on the cylinder. By eliminating the need for separate manifolds, plumbing between control valves and cylinders, transducer mounting brackets and other complex arrangements, we’re providing the benefits of custom assemblies while reducing the complexity and cost.” Eaton’s electrohydraulic cylinder offers:
- Reduced setup time: Simplified plumbing and electrical connections, along with the programmability of the AxisPro® valve, eliminates repetitive set-ups.
- Waste elimination: Infinite positioning with high repeatability can improve yield in the production cycle.
- Increased production: Programmable motion control enables faster cycles than conventional hydraulic circuitry.
Eaton electrohydraulic cylinders are offered in NFPA tie rod, mill duty, welded or threaded styles, and are available with a range of mountings, bore sizes and rod diameters. An Eaton proportional, servo, directional control or AxisPro valve can be mounted onto the configured cylinder and adjusted to customer specifications.
