NextSense Presents the CALIPRI Optical Measurement System at the CONTROL and is Awarded a Contract Worth Millions by German Premiu Print E-mail
Written by NextSense   
Wednesday, 20 February 2013

NextSense GmbH, the innovative provider of optical sensor technology, will present the CALIPRI called non-contact multi-platform method for the quick recording and flexible analysis of gap contours at the CONTROL 2013 trade fair in Stuttgart (hall 5, booth 5401). “CALIPRI meets the requirements of the automotive industry for ever narrower gap dimensions and measurement solutions independent of platform,” said Christoph Böhm, Marketing Manager at NextSense. “The optical measurement system allows for measurements of an accuracy unknown up to now as well as the universal use of one and the same measurement device in all stages of automotive body production.”

Geometry data of gaps can be examined with CALIPRI just as with a feeler gauge or stencil. In contrast to other methods, CALIPRI delivers measurement results free of assumptions even deep down in the gap through non-contact profile recording. The versatile, precise and easy-to-use optical measuring instrument CALIPRI is available in three versions: The “CALIPRI Portable” for mobile gap and flush measurements; the “CALIPRI Inline Operator” for manual use on the assembly line; and the fully automated, robotic system “CALIPRI Inline Robot.” The last-mentioned system will be presented for the first time at the CONTROL 2013.

The highlights of CALIPRI include:

 Complete recording – absolute accuracy of measurement in a few seconds:

The recording of the complete gap profile with CALIPRI delivers reliable measurement values in comparison to conventional measurement systems. The required measurement process takes only a few seconds. This means far less expenditure of time combined with greater accuracy.

 Flexible analysis – clear analysis algorithms with a maximum of adaptability:

Flexible measurement instructions allow for compatibility and traceability to gauge, inline results and CAD data. The parameters of the selected analysis algorithm can be adapted to user requirements and the specific measurement situation within a few seconds.

 Use of platforms – need-based versions with traceable results:

As a portable device or on the production line, CALIPRI increases both process reliability and quality in the production process. Measurement data and test plans can be exchanged between the CALIPRI systems and the user's quality assurance system.

Recently, NextSense GmbH has been awarded a contract worth millions from a German premium carmaker: The CALIPRI optical measurement system will be used worldwide in the production of a new model range in the future. As part of its quality assurance, gap and flush will be measured by the CALIPRI method in compliance with the company's high premium standards across all production steps, from the car body shell up to the finished vehicle.

The selection process was decided in favor of the optical measurement system by NextSense mainly for the reason that it is implementable – both inline and portable – on various platforms. “With CALIPRI, the measurement results of the premium carmaker – owing to the identical measurement method – will be for the first time completely operator-independent and comparable on multiple platforms, for instance in terms of production and quality assurance,“ Christoph Böhm emphasizes. “This is a crucial aspect for an automobile manufacturer, because gaps of car bodies contribute a great deal to the positive perception of a car. Especially for premium producers, accurate gap measurements are an important criterion for quality. The trend toward ever narrower gap dimensions requires more accurate measurement methods that are exactly reproducible – like CALIPRI.”

With a worldwide sales network, NextSense GmbH offers laser-based profile measurement devices and customized system solutions in the rapidly growing market of optical sensor technology. The company has been awarded a prize as Top Exporter. It is a spin-off of the Austrian research organization Joanneum Research and currently employs 31 staff members at its site in Graz, Austria. The customer base of NextSense includes numerous renowned companies from the automotive, steel and railway sectors. Reference customers are, among others, Audi, VW, Daimler, Magna-Steyr, Alstom, Bombardier, DB, SNCF, ÖBB, SBB, Siemens, Stadler and voestalpine. www.nextsense.at
