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.

Synchronized movements

Robot movements synchronized with measurement
From the knowledge, experience and its solid foundation, a new area opens into the 3D measurement world: Inline Robot-based CMM style inspection

Metrolog driven robot

Full control of robot trajectories straight from Metrolog.

ROBOTIC INSPECTION ON THE SHOP FLOOR

The best Shortcut to Smart Industry 4.0

How does it work?

One software only

Handle robot motions and inspection commands in one single part program. Simultaneously supervise operations taking place en several different measuring equipment.

Touch or Scan?

Measure all your parts with a Touch or Scan i-Robot inspection cell.

Tracking

Tracked in position with a laser tracker or a photogrammetric station.

Inline ready

May be used as a standalone station or as a fully integrated solution to assembly lines.

Fast and accurate

Quick control of all geometrical characteristics of the part based onembedded GD&T within CAD file.

Additional freedom

The solution can integrate additional Robot cell axis such as 7th axis rail or rotary table…

Simultaneous measurement

Solution adaptable to synchronized multiple robots in the same coordinate system.

Ergonomic design

Enabling an intuitive all in one robot based inspection easy to handle and program.
