Artec Group announces the integration of AICON 3D Systems' photogrammetry tool with Artec 3D scanners.

June 20 (Palo Alto, CA) - - Artec will integrate AICON's ScanReference photogrammetry solution with Artec Eva and Spider 3D scanners. This will allow users to attain higher accuracy in their results which then can be used in such industrial spheres as quality assurance, mass production and metrology.


"We are pleased about the integration of our photogrammetric tools into Artec 3D scanners. Thanks to ScanReference, Artec will be able to address target groups with completely different needs" said Dr. Carl-Thomas Schneider, Managing Director of AICON 3D Systems.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
