TRITOP - Optical 3D Coordinate Measuring Machine

The portable TRITOP system measures coordinates of three-dimensional objects quickly and precisely. Measuring tasks that traditionally were performed by tactile 3D coordinate measuring machines can now easily be carried out with the TRITOP system. It does not require any complex, heavy and maintenance-intensive hardware. The measuring machine comes to the object!

As with tactile coordinate measuring machines TRITOP records the coordinates and their orientation in space for any feature of interest:

After the 3D coordinates have been determined, the measurement mathematically is transformed into the coordinate system of the component:

The measured and aligned data is used for various tasks:

When comparing the measuring data with CAD data (IGES, VDA, STEP, Catia, ProE, UG ...), the corresponding measuring reports are created in the familiar formats:
