Creaform Releases New VXtrack Dynamic Tracking Module at CONTROL 2011
Stuttgart, Germany – Creaform, a leader in portable 3D optical measurement technologies and 3D engineering services, released its new VXtrack dynamic tracking software module
during the 25th CONTROL international trade fair for quality assurance that was held in Stuttgart, Germany, May 3 to 6, 2011.
VXtrack dynamic tracking module
Teamed with Creaform’s C-Track dual camera optical sensor, VXtrack dynamic tracking can be used to simultaneously andcontinuously 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.
