Large Scale Measurement Hits New Precision Levels With New MaxSHOT

Added to MTDCNC by Measurement Solutions on 09 May 2017

'Game changer' is the only way to describe the new Creaform MaxSHOT 3D Next that is now available from Measurement Solutions. The UK's metrology specialists has now extended its ability to offer the highest level of measurement accuracy and repeatability on parts from 2m to 10m with the arrival of the MaxSHOT 3D.

Destined to change the landscape for product development, manufacturing, quality control and inspection teams that need impeccable precision levels and repeatability up to 10m, the hand-held MaxSHOT 3D measuring system can be used by inspection and quality control departments for dimensional inspection of parts, as well as product development teams that wish to reverse engineer large products.

The new MaxSHOT 3D is aesthetically and ergonomically designed for ease of use. Within the sophisticated system is guidance technology and user friendly software that makes the new MaxSHOT 3D ideal for users of all levels, even non-metrology experts.

For manufacturers that consistently work on large-scale projects, the MaxSHOT 3D from Measurement Solutions is the first system that gives complete peace of mind. The MaxSHOT 3D gives users the ability to easily measure with an accuracy within 0.015mm/m, significantly improving process efficiency and measurement consistency.

Renowned for portable, reliable and very easy-to-use metrology equipment, the new MaxSHOT 3D photogrammetric camera and the VXshot processing software from Measurement Solutions stands out from other systems because it is so easy to use. It allows engineers completely new to photogrammetry to quickly and easily generate a high accuracy positioning model of an object based on a series of photos. The handheld device has multi-function buttons on the body that enables the operator to easily interact with the software without having to return to the laptop.

Unlike more traditional photogrammetry systems, there are no complicated cameras to handle or manipulate, so you don't need to be a photographic expert. MaxSHOT 3D is designed to make photogrammetry as simple, accurate and error free as possible. This makes the MaxSHOT 3D ideal for smaller jobs such as benchtop measurements, jig and fixture certification and other smaller parts.

The MaxSHOT 3D incorporates new high quality optics that improve accuracy by up to 40% whilst a laser projected frame with a live go/no-go feedback, visually ensures the operator is taking suitable images and measurements, eliminating the potential for error. This works in synergy with software diagnostic tools that suggest corrective actions during the measurement process.

Capable of direct measurements with optical probing accessories, the MaxSHOT 3D is ideal for tasks such as geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, hole and plane position and orientation measurement, surface profiles, edge locations, etc.

For existing users of Creaform equipment, the MaxSHOT 3D can be used in conjunction with other Creaform products to achieve significant increases in the measuring range and volumetric accuracy of their existing portable CMM or scanners. The maximum error when using the MaxSHOT 3D Next is equivalent to 0.015mm/metre, with an average error as little as 0.005mm/metre. When this is combined with other Creaform products, the end user gains significant improvements in volumetric accuracy.
