Industry 4.0 white paper

A wide range of manufacturing industries such as the automotive industry are supported by the outstanding capabilities of their manufacturing sites. The world’s attention is now focused on a future guided by the concepts of “Industry 4.0” and “Smart Factory” that aim at a radical shift toward an integrated factory

XTIA technology

At the core of XTIA sensors are optical frequency combs or Optocombs, a Nobel-prize technology that has been dubbed the world’s most accurate ruler. XTIA leverages this unique polychromatic laser technology to offer high-speed and highresolution 3D metrology and Quality 4.0 solutions to the manufacturing

Application: Dimensional inspection of complex shapes

XTIA’s technology is based on Optocombs, a coaxial laser system that scans objects and gives access to the full 3D profile of the most complex manufactured parts with high accuracy. XTIA's Optocomb sensors are capable of measuring 500,000 data points per

Application: Engine performance optimization

The OptoComb technology and our coaxial laser 3D scanners provide access to the dimensional profile of complex structures with high accuracy. As a result, XTIA’s solutions can be extremely valuable if integrated within the manufacturing process flow, because it opens the door to the reduction of geometric tolerances by a specific correction process.

Application: Burrs & scratches

Engineering is a world where quantitative judgment should and can be made, but this has often been difficult to achieve on a manufacturing floor dominated by human inspection. With the automated inspection solutions offered by XTIA, quantitative inspection and engineering of micrometer defects is finally possible: Optocomb 3D scanners by XTIA have a reliable track record for the detection of a large range of 3D defects such as

Application: Hybrid inspection

The reason why automated inspection is so difficult to implement is that there is a wide variety of defects to be inspected, and it is practically impossible to detect all of them with a single sensor. Conversely, using different sensors for different types of defects is time-consuming and costly, and as a result, it becomes a major barrier to automating the inspection process. The hybrid solution by XTIA circumvents this barrier
