Revolutionary Step in Laser Measurement

 

Ultra Fast Profile Measurement Capabilities


The Gap Gun range of non contact laser measurement systems are capable of a wide variety of profile measurements. Developed by Third Dimension in the UK, the portable systems provide real-time data to give manufacturers fast, precise and reliable information about their products. A wide full colour graphical screen shows operators how and where to measure while sounds and vibrations alert the operator with real-time go or no-go decisions. The system can be completely automated when combined with the robot measuring arm Vectro.

 

Gap Gun sensors and systems feature fast, accurate, repeatable and traceable measurements. Suppliers as well as OEMs in industries such as automotive, aerospace, and power generation have benefitted from incorporating Gap Gun measurement systems into their quality control and inspection capabilities.
