Non-Contact Multipurpose Metrology Platform


A precise, high speed metrology and inspection system for processing complex geometries in just a fraction of time versus a traditional CMM
The DWFritz ZeroTouch is a robust, shop floor-ready, non-contact metrology platform that captures millions of data points per second in just one scan, up to 10X faster than a traditional CMM. ZeroTouch utilizes a multisensor array for the rapid measurement of surface finish, color, gloss and complex geometries such as chamfers, knife edges, undercuts and bores to enable the precise inspection of the most intricate parts with low GRR.

Innovative Technology

Multisensor technology measures parts faster
Using application-based custom sensors, ZeroTouch can capture millions of data points per second in just one scan, unlike traditional CMMs. 
Multisensor measurement of complex geometries such as bores, undercuts and chamfers across a wide variety of materials enables precise inspection of even the most intricate parts with low GRR.
Advanced analytics integration
 

Integration with various industry software allows for parts to be analyzed by comparing point cloud scans with nominal CAD models and GD&T controls.

Statistical process control (SPC) data can drive warnings to the MES to reduce variability and scrap.

 

 

Highly configurable control software
 

Working with MES, ZeroTouch will store and obtain inspection part programs, as well as measurement data for every part, preserving data integrity.

Menu driven, automated creation of part measurement plans eliminates specialized programming. Inspection part plans can be launched easily by recalling the program from MES or via an optional barcode reader.
