AICON 3D Systems GmbH is one of the worlds leading providers of optical 3D metrology. The company, founded in 1990, develops and supplies portable coordinate measuring machines for universal applications as well as specialized optical measuring technology for vehicle testing and tube manufacturing. Since the acquisition of Breuckmann GmbH in August 2012, the portfolio also includes optical 3D measuring systems for contact-free surface measurement of objects. AICON's reference list boasts renowned global automotive manufacturers and suppliers, companies from the aerospace industry, and the areas of shipbuilding, renew- able energies and mechanical engineering.
Efficient and high-precision production monitoring, quality assurance and control as well as reliable reverse engineering are absolutely essential to be competitive in a global market. In the field of measuring technol- ogy and beyond, optical and portable non-contact 3D measuring systems become more and more important. With the product lines MoveInspect Technology, breuckmann Scanner and TubeInspect, AICON offers solutions for various inspection and digitization tasks.
MoveInspect Technology brings together a wide range of optical measuring technologies in a high perfor- mance modular system concept. Due to the modular design, components such as sensors, probes and com- puters can be combined with the suitable software for each measuring task. MoveInspect Technology is co- ordinate measuring technology for an abundance of applications, whether static or dynamic, whether prob- ing, tracking or targeting.
The Breuckmann scanners ensure a highly precise optical capturing of complex 3D structures. The patented miniature projection technique allows efficient and cost-effective measuring and testing for various technical applications, e.g. surface inspection of metal components or deformation analysis of gears.
The optical measuring system TubeInspect offers an efficient quality assurance in tube and wire manufactur- ing. TubeInspect is specially designed for the measurement of formed tubes and wires, both in reverse engi- neering and in serial production. It works as programmable optical gauge and calculates setup and correc- tional data for bending machines within just a few seconds.
With their products for automated test and process control, AICON opens new worldwide market fields and obtains outstanding growth.
