At last month's Control exhibition Kreon launched announced that its range of 3D laser scanners can now be integrated with the Metrolog X4 i-Robot software for automated inline inspection. Kreon's 3D laser scanners can be easily interchanged and mounted on portable arms, machine tools, manual and DCC CMM's. Now the scanners are fully integrated with the Metrolog X4 i-Robot they can be used with any kind of robot.

AMETEK Taylor Hobson has added two new products to its range of surface measurement testers. The Surtronic Duo is a portable surface roughness tester for shop floor and on-site measurement of multiple roughness parameters, and the Intra Touch is a contour and finish measurement system for precision machining and many other applications.

Nikon Metrology, which 20 years ago introduced non-contact laser scanning on a coordinate measuring machine (CMM), has introduced the new Nikon InSight L100 scanner featuring superior optics and innovative camera technology. Suitable for measurement of both surfaces and features, even on shiny or multi-material parts, the equipment is said to quickly deliver accurate data and intuitive part-to-CAD comparison reports.

Zeiss showed new models of its O-INSPECT multi-sensor measuring machines at Control, with a greater selection of machines, configurations and options that allow customers to have a more flexible choice for a wide range of application. Customers will now be able to choose from several sizes, load capacities and contact probes, says product manager Christoph Stark.

Cygnus has incorporated two additional measuring modes in its latest range of thickness gauges.  Single-Echo and Echo-Echo modes, both using twin crystal probes, can assist in obtaining measurements in areas of extreme corrosion or back wall pitting. The single-echo measuring mode is suitable for measuring uncoated surfaces with heavy front face and/or back-wall corrosion and attenuative materials such as cast metals, plastics and composites. The Echo-Echo measuring mode is used for measuring painted metals but with heavy back wall pitting for improved back wall detection.

Aimess now offers its R3Dscan 3D infrared scanner as an automated system that can be directly connected to an industrial robot. This makes it possible to integrate infrared scanning into production lines in order to inspect dimension, shape, and position of objects in manufacturing cycles.

Hexagon Metrology has launched a new release of QUINDOS, the dimensional inspection software for coordinate measuring machines and gear inspection centres. QUINDOS 7.10, focuses on usability while also adding support for the latest Hexagon Metrology non-contact sensors, including the HP-L laser scanning sensor, the PRECITEC LR optical sensor and the HP-O interferometric solution.

Launched at Control, Ametek Creaform’s VXinspect is said to be powerful and intuitive 3-D inspection software that includes all the tools for first article inspection (FAI) and quality control.

Engineering cutting and measuring tool supplier Cutwel has released a new digital RTJ (Ring Type Joint) ring groove calliper for both inside and outside measurements.

Bowers Group has announced a partnership with Accretech GmbH that will add high-end roundness, roughness and form measurement to its UK product range.
