IBS Quality, Verisurf Unveil Portable Collaborative Robot Inspection System at Control Trade Fair

STUTTGART, Germany, May 10, 2022 – IBS Quality GmbH launched, the new PAM-System (Portable Automated Measurement System), a portable cobot-based 3D scanning and measurement solution, at Control, Stuttgart, Germany. The launch is in collaboration with Verisurf Software, Inc., and its integrated 3D measurement software for automated quality inspection, reporting, scanning, and reverse engineering.

The PAM-System is a portable scanning, measurement, and inspection solution that uses cobots (collaborative robots) to augment repetitive user routines while adding flexibility, dexterity, and accuracy. All hardware (including fixtures for sensor attachments to the robot), software, installation, service, and support are included with the comprehensive system. The entire solution is self-contained on a specially designed inspection cart that can be easily rolled from the quality lab to the shop floor. The PAM-System can be used for first article inspection, volume production inspection, reverse engineering, and prototyping,

“We have designed the best of today’s robotic, scanning, measurement, and inspection automation technologies into a single mobile solution; one that meets the practical needs of job shops and OEM manufacturers adapting to the realities of Industry 4.0,” said Philipp Schmid, IBS Quality GmbH.

The PAM-System includes robotics automation from 11 Dynamics, 3D measurement, inspection, and reporting integration with Verisurf Software, and a choice of leading 3D laser scanner brands or other scanner technologies.

The integrated Verisurf Inspection and Analysis application is built on a CAD platform and is rooted in Model-Based Definition (MBD). Inspection plans are easily created by importing any CAD model, using drawings, a golden part, or key features. Inspection plans can be used across the manufacturing enterprise on any CMM, providing repeatable process control. “The Verisurf workflow enhances productivity and enables repeatable process control, which is a key tenet of QA; the automated PAM-System supports both,” said Nick Merrell, executive vice president of Verisurf.
