About i‑Robot technology

The i‑Robot tech­nol­ogy is suit­able for all indus­trial robots; it pro­vides a production-​ready metrol­ogy solu­tion that is accu­rate, reli­able and flex­i­ble.
i‑Robot is per­fectly suited for all appli­ca­tions requir­ing flex­i­bil­ity and pro­duc­tiv­ity while pro­vid­ing high metro­log­i­cal accuracy.

  • Measuring accu­racy fully inde­pen­dent of robot’s posi­tion­ing precision.
  • Robot move­ments per­fectly
    syn­chro­nized with measurement.
  • Robot tra­jec­tory entirely con­trolled by i‑Robot part program.
  • The main appli­ca­tions can be found in the auto­mo­tive, aero­space and their sup­pli­ers for con­ti­nu­ity across man­u­fac­tur­ing lines and metrol­ogy control.

High speed acquisition

The i‑Robot mea­sur­ing sys­tem is based on a high speed acqui­si­tion laser scan­ner or a touch probe attached to a multi-​axis robot wrist. The robot, of any type or brand, with­out spe­cific accu­racy, behaves as a sim­ple tool holder.

The mea­sur­ing accu­racy is pro­vided, either by a sep­a­rate track­ing cam­era fol­low­ing the laser sen­sor box equipped with posi­tion­ing LEDs, or by a laser tracker system.

The main appli­ca­tions can be found in the auto­mo­tive, aero­space and their sub-​contractors, for the in-​line man­u­fac­tur­ing metrol­ogy control.
