The L100 extends the capabilities of a CMM with the ability to digitize parts easily, accurately and quickly
The Nikon Metrology L100 is the next-generation CMM laser scanner, offering the best possible combination of speed, accuracy and ease of use. Suitable for surface and feature measurements, even on reflective or multi-material surfaces, the scanner extends the capabilities of a CMM with the ability to digitize parts quickly. High quality data is provided for insightful part-to-CAD comparison and reporting.
The L100 is ideal for applications where high productivity and inspection accuracy are key. It is equipped with a top quality Nikon glass lens custom-designed and optimized for laser scanning, as well as a high-definition camera capturing 2,000 non-interpolated points per line. The unit is perfectly suited for combined surface and feature measurements max 420,000 pts/sec.
Ultrafast, automated data collection – up to 420,000 pts/sec scan speed
Captures the finest details with Nikon glass lens - Best-in-class accuracy of 6.5 μm
Real-time optimization of laser parameters for measuring any surface
Benefits & features
Automated data collection
The L100 CMM scanner connects to a variety of CMM brands, converting them into versatile, multi-sensor solutions capable of quickly digitizing complex parts of any shape or size. Benefiting fully from the CNC capabilities of a CMM, measurements with the L100 scanner can be fully automated, freeing operator time and increasing productivity. Laser scanning measurements can be combined with tactile measurements to provide absolute inspection flexibility.
Ultrafast data collection
The 100 mm wide FOV (field-of-view) combined with the increased measurement speed of up to 420,000 pts/sec results in measurement productivity that until now was unachievable by CMM scanning. Built-in FOV projection clearly indicates to a user whether the scanner is precisely positioned, simplifying programming and allowing optimal scan path generation.
The L100 is equipped with a high quality glass Nikon lens that is custom-designed and optimized for laser scanning. Combined with the high definition camera capturing 2000 non-interpolated points per line, this results in a point resolution of 42 μm, enabling measurement of fine detail and sharp edges. The L100 has an exceptionally small probing dispersion value (according to ISO10360-8 standard) of 26 μm, which is a measure of the scanner’s noise level, enabling delivery of smooth meshes and high levels of detail.
Real-time optimization of laser parameters
The 4th generation of Nikon Metrology's patented Enhanced Sensor Performance (ESP4) adapts the laser intensity automatically to varying colors and material surfaces for each point in the scan line. It does this faster than ever, making the L100 even more capable at digitizing multi-material assemblies or shiny surfaces, without the need for time-consuming treatment of the component surface.
Easy to use
A built-in Field-of-View (FOV) projection provides a clear indication for the user whether the scanner is optimally positioned. This facilitates scanner programming and allows for optimal scan path generation.
Extend the measurement reach
A patent-pending, integrated mount allows the scanner to rotate around its autojoint axis in 30 degree increments up to 90 degrees. It facilitates measuring turbine blades or parts with vertically oriented features and edges. The L100 also allows the use of an extended 105-degree PH10 A-angle, allowing better access to measure underneath or behind parts.
