MI.Probe mini – small probe supports breuckmann scanners

Measure a gearbox housing with flange hole patterns, undercuts and hidden measuring points? That is no problem with a breuckmann 3D scanner, even though hidden geometries and bores can be reached only by changing the set-up several times. A small handheld probe now solves this task much more comfortably: The MI.Probe mini. It was spe-cially developed for measurements with the breuckmann stereoSCAN. Only 15 cm long, the MI.Probe mini identifies all

AICON’s optical measuring system now with interface to PowerINSPECT

Braunschweig/Germany, 26 April 2011 – As of now AICONs optical measuring system MoveInspect HR will be delivered with a direct interface to Delcam’s analysis software PowerINSPECT. MoveInspect HR is a portable coordinate measurement machine, consisting of high-resolution digital cameras and the hand-operated MI.Probe.

One of Uwira’s special fields is the production of oil and fuel pipes as well as cooling water lines. Uwira’s key to competitiveness is the close

Tactile measurement with AICON’s new MI.Probe

Braunschweig/Germany, 30 April 2010 – Just in time for the beginning of the Control show, AICON launches the unique MI.Probe. It combines extraordinary design with technical finesse – and is easy to handle at the same time. The MI.Probe works in combination with AICON’s portable coordinate measuring machine MoveInspect. This measuring system uses high resolution digital cameras for data collection. They are either mounted on tripods or on a camera

AICON's TubeInspect now carries out automatic correction on Wafios free-form ben …

Braunschweig/Germany, 8 April 2010 – In the past free-form tubes were in demand primarily from the furniture business for design reasons, these days demand is generated from all industrial areas. Consequently, more tube benders need the right measuring systems which take the particularities of complex free-form tubing into account. This is where AICON's optical measurement system TubeInspect offers an ideal solution. It carries out very precise testing of free-form tube
