ATOS Core

3D scanner at the size of a book

The ATOS Core scanner has an extremely compact design. The design is exceptional as it has a narrow sensor head with both optics and electronics integrated. The design results in a stable and robust solution which is easy and intuitive to handle. 

The ATOS Core 3D scanner can be used for reverse engineering, 3D measurement and inspection. The 3D scanner from GOM uses stereo camera setup, combined with the newest blue light technology which makes the scanning process independent of the ambient light, resulting in better data on complex and shiny surfaces.

ATOS Core is available with 2 or 5 mega pixel cameras and has fixed measuring volume. The fixed measuring volume means that the entire sensor head is replaced when changing measuring volume.The operator thus avoids changing and adjusting the lenses, and calibrate the system when changing measuring volume.

The ATOS Core serie is used for small and medium sized part up to a half meter.

ATOS Core is available in three lines, each of which solves different needs. Within each line there are a number of sensor heads with different measuring volumes. 

  • Essential Line is for simple scanning used for reverse engineering, documentation and 3D print 
  • Professional Line is for metrology applications with extensive analysis and inspection options. Can also be used for reverse engineering. 
  • Kinematics Line is for measurement and quality control in an automated solution and robot integration called ATOS ScanBox 4105.

 

It is possible to upgrade from Essential Line to Professional or Kinematics Line if the needs or metrology tasks are changing.

 

 

During scanning, a precise pattern of stripes is projected (fringe projection) on to the part's surface, and is detected by two cameras, calibrated in a stereo camera setup. Surface data is collected, where the camera rays intersect.  

In this process, the projector in the middle is passive and only contributes by projecting stripes. By using Triple Scan Technology, the projector is used as a calibrated unit in the measurement. In this way it is possible to capture data by combining one camera with the projector unit.

The scanner thus collects data in the following ray intersections:

  • Left camera / Right camera
  • Left camera / Projector
  • Right camera / Projector

Hence, the word Triple Scan Technology refers to the fact that three different methods are used for capturing data during the scanning process. As both cameras and projector are calibrated, all three elements are used to calculate the coordinates.

It is an advantage to use the Triple Scan Technology when scanning shiny parts, holes and complex geometries.

The projection unit in the ATOS scanner is based on Blue Light Technology, which means that the scanner projects light from a narrow-band blue frequency. Hereby, ambient light is filtered out during the scanning process and does not interfere during the measurement. The strong Blue Light source thereby result in an effecient and fast measurement.
