ZEISS introduces the newest member of its compact 3D sensor family for easy and fast measurements: the ZEISS COMET L3D 2. "The ZEISS COMET L3D 2 uses the latest sensor technology and project-oriented software for easy and reliable 3D data capture.
The 3D data capture of components and objects is fast and precise, offering superb performance," explains Dr. Marcus Steinbichler, CEO of Carl Zeiss Optotechnik GmbH. "At the same time, the user has greater scope to perform a multitude of measuring tasks thanks to the unique flexibility of the system. The ZEISS colin3D high-performance software platform also ensures a consistently efficient and goal-oriented workflow during the entire measuring process."
With a range of working distances from 45-500 mm, the ZEISS COMET L3D 2 sensor ensures problem-free operation, even in cramped conditions. This innovative solution has an extremely fast warm-up mode, allowing the operator to concentrate fully on the measuring task. Available options to create an integrated measurement system include rotary tables, tripods, a variety of computers and in-depth, on-site technical training.
When developing the ZEISS Comet L3D 2 sensor, ZEISS made flexible application possibilities the number one priority. Thus the extremely compact and lightweight sensor system can be transported between application sites without difficulty. Moreover, the simple on-site calibration enables changing the measuring field by swapping the lenses. This makes the system ready for new measuring tasks in next to no time.
The range of applications for the ZEISS COMET L3D 2 includes inspection, tool manufacture and mold making, design, rapid manufacturing, reverse engineering as well as the archeology and capture of art-historical objects.
The high light intensity and the fast camera, with a 2448 x 2050 pixel array, the ZEISS COMET L3D 2 allows users from the aforementioned areas to have extreme flexibility when it comes to the application site. "Even in difficult ambient conditions, the ZEISS COMET L3D 2 delivers precise 3D data, automatically recognizes changes in vibration and exposure and offers high-end technology for exceptional data quality with maximum ease of use," explains Steinbichler. "Moreover, the enormous light yield and the distinctively high measuring speed ensure reliable data capture on extremely different object surfaces."
COMET models with 1M, 2M, 5M, 8M and 16M pixel arrays are immediately available through ZEISS direct sales and authorized business partners.
