Nikon’s LC15Dx Laser Scanner provides a unique 3D visualization of dimensional quality using Color Mapping. In addition, Nikon’s unique ESP3 technology maintains accuracy, speed and data quality by adapting the laser settings in real-time, improving efficiency and part quality data accuracy. “These advanced capabilities allow our team the ability to measure and analyze a larger array of parts, each with varying geometry and materials, with a single piece of equipment,” said Chad Johnson, Roush Yates Engines Quality Manager.
“In addition, Nikon’s CMM Manager software, provided for all of Roush Yates Engines CMM’s will save considerably on programming time,” Johnson added.
