Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, North Kingstown, RI, introduced the BLAZE 600M non-contact optical measurement solution. The flexible, manually operated system provides ultra-rapid 3D data acquisition and actionable data for measurement, inspection, product development, line tuning, and reverse engineering. The scanner performs feature and surface measurements of parts and assemblies in various sizes, combining high-resolution digital imaging with blue light LED illumination, and does not require surface treatment of metallic, plastic, and composite parts. The system is not sensitive to industrial and ambient light sources or indirect daylight. It is designed for operation in high-vibration industrial environments. The all-in-one system is available in two projection configurations for tasks such as routine dimensional control operations or measurement of workpieces with complex features or challenging material types. Operators can also directly switch between surface data acquisition modes.
