NEUBEUERN, Germany, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Steinbichler, the leading provider of optical measuring and sensor technology, proudly presents the portable coordinate measuring system T-POINT CS. The innovative, all-in-one, touch probe solution STEINBICHLER T-POINT CS offers you a new dimension in coordinate measuring technology with a very attractive price performance ratio. "The perfectly coordinated components – tracking camera, hand-held scanner and touch probe – act as a modular system to provide optimum flexibility for multiple uses in the broadest range of sectors," explains Andreas Fuchs, Product Manager at Steinbichler.
STEINBICHLER T-POINT CS boasts impressive accuracy, precision and reliability. The highly flexible intuitive operation makes it the perfect solution for single-point measurements on edges and ruled geometries. The system uses conventional, commonly available, measuring probes. Trigger buttons in multiple positions, an additional function button and status LEDs, guarantee ease of use.
Particular emphasis was placed on ergonomic design for fatigue-proof and efficient working processes. The result is compact and light-weight. It can effortlessly be used for single-point measurements even in deep, difficult-to-reach measuring positions. The calibration of the system is also quick and intuitive.
Application areas for the STEINBICHLER T-POINT CS are versatile: it is particularly useful in fields such as quality control/inspections (e.g. target/actual comparison for CAD, dimensioning/boundary measurements of sheet metal parts, production-focused inspection), in tool and mold-making (e.g. tool construction, scan data for generating cutting paths, current status determination of tools during their use, inspection of complex welded structures, setting up gauges and supports), in design (e.g. scanning design models for processing in CAD and for documentation, capturing character lines, quickly capturing basic areas for adjustment), in rapid manufacturing when capturing 3D data for rapid prototyping, as well as in reverse engineering of complex geometries.Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH is world renowned for their expertise in high-precision optical measurement and sensor technologies as well as for efficient solutions designed to cater to the requirements of the automotive, aerospace and tire industries.
