About i-Robot technology

The i-Robot technology is suitable for all industrial robots; it provides a production-ready metrology solution that is accurate, reliable and flexible.
i-Robot is perfectly suited for all applications requiring flexibility and productivity while providing high metrological accuracy.

  • Measuring accuracy fully independent of robot’s positioning precision.
  • Robot movements perfectly
    synchronized with measurement.
  • Robot trajectory entirely controlled by i-Robot part program.
  • The main applications can be found in the automotive, aerospace and their suppliers for continuity across manufacturing lines and metrology control.

High speed acquisition

The i-Robot measuring system is based on a high speed acquisition laser scanner or a touch probe attached to a multi-axis robot wrist. The robot, of any type or brand, without specific accuracy, behaves as a simple tool holder.

The measuring accuracy is provided, either by a separate tracking camera following the laser sensor box equipped with positioning LEDs, or by a laser tracker system.

The main applications can be found in the automotive, aerospace and their sub-contractors, for the in-line manufacturing metrology control.
