Chromatic white light sensor
HEXAGON MANUFACTURING INTELLIGENCE
This advanced chromatic white light sensor (CWS) is known for high efficiency when it comes to applications that require scanning. The device is based on the confocal measurement principle and the way it works is by using chromatic depth scanning.
This technique makes use of a very special lens, which refracts white light differentially, depending on the wavelength and the requirements of the project that involves distance measurements. In addition, the resolution of the system is also dependent on the inspected part's light intensity.
