Optimax launches new scanner for detailed analysis of turbine blades

Optimax has introduced its FinePrecision optical measuring device that is said to set new standards in precision and efficiency.

FinePrecision has been engineered to capture an impressive density of data, exceeding 1,200 points/mm2 within a scanned area. At its core, the FinePrecision employs the latest generation of high-speed cameras equipped with CMOS sensors, complemented by a powerful LED blue light source. The harmonious integration of these innovative technologies ensures an exceptional level of accuracy, reaching up to 6µm, and a remarkable resolution down to 28µm, even when confronted with challenging dark-surfaced objects.

A single scan with the FinePrecision unlocks the potential to acquire detailed data within a volumetric space of 120 x 60 x 45mm. Leveraging blue structured light scanning technology, this device effectively mitigates noise arising from ambient light, delivering clean and precise scans. The synergy between the advanced high-speed cameras and a rapid frame collection, triggered by the projection system, further contributes to an impressive reduction in scanning time, achieving speeds below 1 second.

In the realm of precision mechanics, the FinePrecision stands out as an indispensable measuring tool. Its applications are varied, including the production of turbine blades to measure aerofoil profiles, leading and trailing edge position and thickness, camber lines, chord angles and lengths and 2D twist analysis. In the area of damage, it can also be used for surface damage such as dings and dents
