Replacing the firm’s 2017-released HD Quadro system, the new dual-band scanner was designed from the ground up and features two different scanning ranges for both small and large objects.
Operating on the company’s blue LED technology, the professional-grade 3D Quadro+ is suitable for everything from product design applications to production line quality control and even reverse engineering.
Szymon Ścibik, R&D Manager at Evatronix, said, “Prior to developing the new dual-band scanner, we analyzed our HD Quadro geometry and component performance to determine how it could be improved. Our goal was to increase scanning accuracy on both scopes. We also wanted to reduce scanning time and achieve high point cloud density.”
The Evatronix 3D scanning range
Founded around three decades ago, Evatronix started out as a designer of electronics systems and circuits. The company pivoted into the 3D scanning sector in 2008, and has since packed out a large portfolio of scanning systems under its eviXscan business.
In 2019, Evatronix launched its eviXmatic inspection system, which is designed to provide fully automated, non-contact part measurements. The hardware can be used both as a standalone kit or as a dock for other devices in the Evatronix lineup.
March 2021 saw the launch of the eviXscan 3D FinePrecision 3D scanner. The machine is intended for high-precision small part scanning, addressing the needs of watchmakers, jewelry professionals, and even medical professionals involved with prosthetics and implants.
More recently, the firm released its 3D Optima+ M 3D scanner, a medium-sized object machine with a scan time four times shorter and a scanning area 43% larger than its predecessor.
The 3D Quadro+
The most noteworthy feature of the 3D Quadro+ is its double scanning range. With versatility front and center, users can precisely capture small objects ranging from 120 to 450mm, as well as larger surfaces up to 1000mm in length. In essence, the system is designed to function as two scanners in one package.
Changing the scan range is done on-the-fly and requires no recalibration whatsoever. Users can even combine scans from the two different scopes using eviXscan 3D Suite 2.8 software, which is particularly useful when only one specific section of a build may require high resolutions.
To enable the dual capabilities, the 3D Quadro+ features four cameras: 2 x 12MP for the inner range and 2 x 9MP for the outer range. These cameras offer varying point cloud densities with the inner range delivering an impressive 351 pt/mm². The maximum scanning accuracy comes in at 0.007mm.
According to the firm, the low-wavelength, high-power blue LED light works to filter out ambient noise more efficiently. As a result, the scanned objects are sufficiently illuminated and the required scan time is reduced, even when working with dark surfaces. The minimum scan acquisition time is just 1.2s.
Finally, Evatronix has even revamped the exterior shell of its latest 3D scanner. The casing is now vacuum cast, making it lighter than the aluminum frame of its predecessor. This also enables integration with more robotics systems for automation purposes.
