NVision is excited to introduce the RoboScanner, a lightweight, turn-key laser scanning system that offers fully automated scanning with 3D analysis. "The RoboScanner provides a significantly faster way to accurately measure components in a production environment," said Steve Kersen, President of NVision.
Until now industrial robots were large, heavy, stationary, and expensive. The RoboScanner comes with none of these disadvantages. Weighing only 50 pounds and being touch-sensitive, it avoids the need for the safety cage required by larger, immobile, high-force robots. In addition, the scanner provides instant inspection analysis and key performance advantages in speed, accuracy, and ease of use.
The RoboScanner, being fully automatic, also reduces manpower requirements.
"By eliminating the expense of a full-time technician's salary along with health care and other expenses, this scanner can be a significant cost-saver," said Kersen. "Further, the scanner can work far faster than a human being without requiring any breaks."

"Customers will see large productivity improvement compared with other scanning technologies. Anyone needing to improve inspection cycle time needs to look at what RoboScanner has to offer before they buy another operator-dependent scanner," said Kersen.
