The new modules is part of Creaforms VXelements proprietary 3D data acquisition software
Stuttgart, April 28, 2011 Creaform, leader in portable 3D optical measurement technologies and 3D engineering services, will release its new VXtrack dynamic tracking software module during the 25th CONTROL international trade fair for quality assurance that will be held in Stuttgart, Germany, from May 3-6, 2011 (Hall 5, booth 5108).
VXtrack dynamic tracking module
Teamed with Creaforms C-Track dual camera optical sensor, VXtrack dynamic tracking can be used to simultaneously and continuously measure positions and orientations in space with great precision. Combined with the HandyPROBE arm-free portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM), VXtrack provides a complete portable 3D measuring solution offering both probing inspection and dynamic measurement capabilities.
The VXtrack module has numerous applications like robot calibration and guidance, monitoring of complex assembly processes, real-time compensation of machining tool-generated errors and monitoring of deformations during testing and can be useful in various industries such as aerospace, automotive, robotics, biomechanics and non-destructive testing (NDT).
Benefits and main features
TRUaccuracy technology guarantees the highest precision, in the lab or on the shop floor and simultaneous measuring of a rigid set of reflectors allows for increased 6 DOF precision.
VXtrack has a measurement rate of up to 24,000 reflectors per second with oversampling, along with extendable measuring volume, real-time curve display, an API for interfacing with third-party applications and acquisition synchronization capability through external trigger input.
