ATOS - 3D Digitizer - last generation

This optical measurement system is based on correlation of triangulations and gray tones of the images captured by two CCD cameras. 3D coordinates of each pixel are calculated with great precision and thus generate polygonal surface of the object analyzed. ISO ATOS system allows digitizing objects with dimensions that are registered in volume measurement from 40x30x15mm to 250x200x200mm.
3D digitizing any size and complexity of the subject:
- high precision 3D coordinates
- scanning the object surface;
- comparison with nominal CAD model;
- full reports of measurements
This system allows data collection in the following areas:
- Quality control;
- Reverse engineering;
- Rapid prototyping;
- Quick-milling
- 3D-archive
- Wear monitoring.


Mechanical testing machine Zwick T1 - FR005TN
• Nominal force: 5kN;
• Tensile, compression and bending strength determination.

Universal mechanical static testing machine for materials, model LFM 30kN
- Types of tests: tensile, compression, bending in 3 points;
- Maximum Strength: 30 kN;
- Measurement Accuracy: 0.5 %;
- Testing at temperature - under 600°C;
- Speed sleeper: 0.001 - 350mm/min

- Micro hardness tester FM 700
• Vickers and Knoop hardness testing in 25-2000gf range;
• System equipped with CCD camera. It offers also the possibility to investigate the metallography of the sample before and after indenting it and to see if it exhibits some inhomogeneities.

PONTOS - Vibration system for investigating the kinematics and the mechanical stress
It is a completely non-contact system that allows capturing 3D positions of the markers found in the field of volume measurement, thereby achieving trajectory points under observation and the relative movements between these points, in the event of relative deformation.
Replaces classical kinematics analysis, using accelerators or displacement transducers.
