The 6DoF optical measurement is DAkkS-certified.

A full optical coordinate measurement system with up to 10-micron accuracy. Up to 30.3 megapixels of camera resolution, a 28-mm wide-angle lens, measuring targets, adapters, and scale bars.

Inspection

An optical coordinate measuring system with great accuracy makes examination of items like wind turbines, ships, and aviation parts a dependable and simple process.

Retain accuracy in uncertain environments

Accurate measurements fulfilling repeatability requirements can be taken during almost any production step – even where the part is in motion. On a hydraulic ramp, for example.

Workflows that use photogrammetry 

Utilize the data from the Metrology Kit in your own workflow to compare it to 3D meshes, CAD entities, and to take extremely precise distance measurements.

High precision for full confidence

Obtain considerably more accurate datasets and confidently carry out inspection in use cases requiring a high level of repeatability.

Analysis of Deformation

Use this optical measurement solution for activities where a quick measuring time is essential, such as analyzing the deformation characteristics of materials under various loads and environmental conditions. Analyzing geometrical changes in objects like storage tanks, car parts, or design prototypes is a breeze using the Metrology Kit.

Flexible and Portable

Because of its portability, the Metrology Kit is simple to use even in the cramped conditions seen in climate chambers.

Simplified Measuring

Work comfortably in strenuous testing environments like climate chambers, where very quick acquisition times are essential but consistent precision and extremely correct datasets are essential.

Streamlined Workflow

Given the numerous measurement points typical of deformation analysis and the challenging working conditions, such as high temperatures and humidity, the Metrology Kit's straightforward process is especially crucial.

For 3D Scanning Reference

Combine the dense point cloud of a metrology 3D scanner with the high precision of the Kit’s optical measurements to expand the capabilities of small to medium-sized object scanners. You can have the best of both worlds obtaining high resolution on smaller elements within large objects while having them fully captured with minimal accumulated error and high volumetric accuracy.

Expand the range of compact scanners

Even when you're not utilizing a 3D scanner for metrology, the Metrology Kit generates a point cloud with excellent volumetric accuracy that you can use as a reference to get exceptional 3D scanning results over distance.

Greater Precision Against Distance

Scanners having a restricted field of view can be used to precisely capture significantly larger objects. This implies that you may maintain extremely high volumetric accuracy—up to 0.015 mm + 0.015 mm/m—while capturing minute details.

Simplified Process

The measuring process is easy to comprehensive, self-contained workflow that incorporates the entire photogrammetry-complemented pipeline into a single environment and runs from signalizing to reporting.

Applications Within The Industry

Flanges on offshore locations in the North Sea and Baltic Sea are frequently surveyed and examined by a German offshore and maritime engineering company that has received ISO certification.

Because of its portability, the Metrology Kit is simple to transport by helicopter. It is the perfect option for such high-accuracy applications under unpredictable conditions due to its quick measuring time, simple procedure, and dynamic referencing.

Within 60 minutes, all measurements, including those for the drill hole diameter, inner and outer diameter, and flatness and inclination of the flange faces, were completed.

Aerospace

The Metrology Kit is used for high-accuracy applications by businesses in the UK, Germany, and Japan that are involved in astronomy, defense, and space. The main and sub panel systems of this substantial satellite antenna tilted at different degrees were subjected to deformation analysis.

Automotive 

On every fourth chassis in a production line, a major German automaker employed the Metrology Kit for quality control to examine the welding stud placements. The welding robot was programmed using the findings.

R&D

Major automakers utilize the Metrology Kit to precisely pinpoint the locations of sensors on a car body and appropriately place them within the coordinate system of the vehicle as part of tests and research for autonomous driving.

Capture

Systematically take photos from various heights, positioning the cameras so that they form a dome-like shape around the subject. At least six captures of each target are required, together with the reference cross at four perpendicular angles.

Reporting

Use the resulting point cloud for technical purposes that are unique to you, such as deformation analysis, flatness check, general dimension measurement, etc.

Processing


Import the images into Artec Studio, with the Metrology Kit plugin installed, or your favorite photogrammetry software, to generate a target cloud.

Object assembly

Set up targets, reference crosses, and scale bars all around the object on surfaces, making sure they don't move during the capture process.

3D Scanning and Photogrammetry Together

Get the high resolution and detail that a 3D scanner for metrology delivers with the pinpoint volumetric accuracy - up to 15 m/m - of photogrammetry by simply combining photogrammetry findings from the Artec Metrology Kit with data from one or more Artec 3D scanners.
