Spot scan for thicknesses, topography and lateral/vertical alignment

Precitec's Flying Spot Scanner (FSS) enables high-speed OCT imaging for thickness and topography, and is combinable with various CHRocodile 2 IT sensors to create a smart inspection system. The FSS features pioneering one-of-its-kind technology enabling high-speed non-contact area inspection for inline and offline quality assurance and 3D measurement on a wide range of materials and surfaces.

  • Replaces X-Y motion system

    For high-speed area inspections in offline and inline quality control processes the Precitec Flying Spot Scanner replaces an entire measuring system – there are no additional linear X-Y axes required. The mechanical linear movement of the X-Y axes is replaced by an optical measurement guided via a sophisticated optical system.
  • Set up your own scanning path for any kind of material

    Only the relevant areas are scanned, and the scan shapes and filters are freely definable. The non-contact 3D imaging system enables measurements on reflecting surfaces – even through protective foil. The telecentric imaging minimizes measurement errors due to angles, because light angle stays constant within the scan area. This also reduces shadowing. 
  • Saves time and money

    The Precitec Flying Spot Scanner's outstanding scanning speed, in combination with the CHRocodile 2 IT's fast measuring rate of 70 kHz, enable in-line use with short inspection cycles and cuts the cost of offline and inline quality controls.
