ATOS Capsule – Optical Blue Light 3D Scanner


High Definition Precision Measurement for Very Small to Medium Objects

The ATOS Capsule is the latest 3D optical measurement system from GOM, ideal for scanning small to medium sized objects at very high resolution. The system can be used for dimensional inspection or reverse engineering applications, with object detail being obtained via fringe projection capture mode. Applications of the ATOS Capsule include first article inspection of gears, turbine blades, wheels and medical parts.

Made of aluminum, the precisely manufactured unibody housing ensures maximum stiffness and precise measuring results
for industrial use. Optics and electronics are protected against dust and splashing water. For this purpose, the lenses are
protected by a cover, integrating a thin non-reflecting glass pane. In addition, the sensor electronics are hermetically
sealed and the cooling takes place via external cooling fins along the housing. Industrial ports increase process reliability
and ensure an interference-free data transfer

Technical Features

High Image Resolution and Measurement Speed


The ATOS sensors return full-field distributed 3D coordinates for eachindividual measurement. Up to 12 million independent measuring points are captured within 1 to 2 seconds. The measuring data is characterized by very high detailed reproduction, thus also enabling very small component features to be measured.

Triple Scan Principle


This automatic principle offers advantages for measuring reflective surfaces and objects with indentations .Complex part geometries are also made easier to scan, with fewer measurements needed to capture the required data for inspection.

Blue Light Technology


GOM projection technology works with narrow-band blue light, which means that interfering ambient light during image acquisition can be filtered out. The light sources are so powerful that short measuring times can be achieved even on uncooperative surfaces. In addition, they have a life expectancy of well over 10,000 hours.

In GOM’s automated measuring machines, ATOS sensors can be operated together with the Plus Box, a photogrammetric add-on sensor, which is directly mounted onto the ATOS system. It allows for fully automated measuring of reference point markers with a deviation of 3 μm to 15 μm.

Self Monitoring System


The sensor recognizes changing ambient conditions during operation and is able to compensate these changes. The sensor is continuously monitoring the calibration status, the transformation accuracy, environmental changes and part movements to ensure the quality of the measuring data.
