Robot-Mounted 3D Imager on a Mobile Station for Automated Inspection on the Shop Floor
The FARO® Factory Robo-Imager Mobile (FRIM) combines the latest advancements in optical 3D measurement and robot technology. The solution pairs a metrology-grade 3D Imager with a human-collaborative robot – integrated on a mobile station that can go wherever measurement tasks are required. The Robo-Imager Mobile provides a turnkey solution to automate the digitization, inspection and verification of parts at any point of production.
The system uses the FARO Cobalt Array Imager, a 3D imager capable of capturing millions of high-resolution 3D coordinate measurements in seconds. The Cobalt Array Imager captures accurate, repeatable and highly-detailed measurement data for dimensional inspection and reverse engineering applications on parts, assemblies and tools.
Specifically designed to maximize productivity and simplify workflows, the Robo-Imager Mobile reduces cycle times for inspection and eliminates scrap and costly rework. The system’s unmatched mobility enables the inspection processes to be moved out of the quality lab and onto the shop floor, so parts can be checked without delay.
