Evatronix, headquartered in Bielsko-Biała, Poland, has launched the eviXscan 3D Optima+ M scanner, replacing the Heavy Duty Optima model which ended production in February 2021. Configuration of the Optima+ M is reported to be comparatively more straightforward thanks to the elimination of HDMI cable; only a USB 3.0 cable is necessary to connect the scanner to the computer. As with all eviXscan 3D scanners, this new offering is supported in the scanning process by numerous accessories delivered with the scanner or available as options.
Optima+ M is designed for precise scanning of medium-sized objects, roughly 7 cm to 1 m. In comparison to the retired eviXscan 3D Heavy Duty Optima, the time of taking a single scan with the new scanner is four times shorter, an equivalent of 1.2 seconds, which enables external conditions to have less influence on the process quality. The scanning area is increased (43% up from the previous model): a single scan made by Optima+ M can collect measurement data from a volume of 320 mm x 190 mm x 120 mm with the quality of the scan is unchanged.
Optima+ M scanners provide a high density of scanning points (117 pts/mm2), and its accuracy ranges 0.009 mm (parameter Ps in accordance with the VDI/VDE guideline 2634 Part 2). This is the result of using high-speed 7 MPx cameras and a projector with a modern DLP chipset that enable the achievement of more accurate measurement results despite the increased scanning range.
Compared to its predecessor, Optima+ M has a reduced distance between scanner and the scanned object. Due to its light, compact design and ease of integration, Optima+ M can be used in robotised measurement systems; Evatronix has already developed software that supports scanner integration with Universal Robots, HAN*S and Kuka cobots/robots. It offers efficient system implementation and easy operation. Optima+ can also be used as a universal scanner, suitable for reverse engineering, non-contact quality control or rapid prototyping.
The scanner is currently available for demonstration and order. First deliveries are planned for July 2021.
