Full 3D profile
Many medium and large parts have cylindrical features that need to meet high quality requirements and the ever-demanding designs of modern manufacturing. XTIA has thus developed its Helical Scan. It combines XTIA's high-accuracy Optocomb sensor with a rotating mirror that translates within the structure along its rotating axis to probe the inner walls of bores and extract their 3D profile. With this system, XTIA brings a new visual and dimensional inspection solution to the table and allows the inner surface of bores and other cylindrical structures to be measured with high-speed and micrometer accuracy.

Dimensional inspection
With a scanning rate of 500,000 points per seconds, Helical Scan is thus the ideal solution for the in-line inspection of bores for 100% of manufactured parts. It gives direct access to the position, diameter, cylindricity, circularity and depth of your bores and cylindrical structures with diameters larger than 20 mm. Helical Scan can thus be applied to a broad range of manufactured parts, including cylinder blocks, brake valves, solenoid valves, bearings, conrods, and many more.




Visual inspection
Detecting micrometer defects in bores is notably difficult with traditional inspection methods. Yet, microdefects can lead to significant dysfunction during the assembly process or the final product operation. With Helical Scan, you can dive deep into bores and perform the visual inspection of the smallest particles, scratches and bulges of your manufactured parts with high resolution. You can thus not only detect and identify microdefects but also get access to their size in all three dimensions. With such quantitative information, manufacturers can fully engineer their manufacturing process and rationalize their production system.

Full 3D profile
With Optocomb 3D scanners by XTIA, you can inspect your conrod with based on a Nobel-prize-winning concept, you can fully profile your cylinder head with microscale accuracy, enabling both dimensional and visual inspection in a single scan. Optocomb 3D scanners can measure 500,000 points per seconds and can complete a full cylinder head scan with a fine pitch in a few tens of seconds. It is significantly faster than traditional contact CMM inspection methods, but it is also more flexible and user-friendly as no measurement recipe is needed.
