PRLog - May 22, 2014 - BRAUNSCHWEIG, Germany -- AICON’s new 3D Arena will facilitate vehicle designers’ work in the future. The new tracking system enables them to determine the absolute position of machines in working space, i.e. processing machines such as mobile milling machines or measuring devices such as white light scanners. The designers can thus work flexibly with mobile machines which can be moved around in the working station without problems.
If the machines are not needed in the meantime, the designer enjoys an entirely undisturbed look at the model. It can be viewed and processed from different angles without impeding stationary milling or measuring machines.
And this is how it works: Up to 15 MoveInspect cameras are mounted on a frame above the working space and thus outside the designer’s focus (e.g. ceiling-mounted)
For AICON’s managing director Carl-Thomas Schneider, 3D Arena is a major step forward regarding workflow:
“The classic design center with stationary milling machines and horizontal arm measuring machines faces strong competition:
For 3D Arena, the breuckmann naviSCAN is especially suitable. With its up-to-date design, the white light scanner is perfectly adapted to 3D Arena and can be tracked at the highest level of accuracy. The all-in-one solution for innovative tracking technology!
