Principle of operation
The GapGun Pro is able to measure simultaneously gap and flush, mismatch, seal width, radii, chamfers, diameters, scratches and many more.
The system projects a laser plan on surface to be controlled and takes a photogrammetric measurement of the intersection of this plan with the surface.
The analysis of the measured profile is carried out using a ‚Äúvirtual toolbox‚ÄĚ. This method of analysis allows the measurement of virtually any type of profile.¬† Multiple measurements can be taken with a single acquisition.
Development of bespoke tools available on ¬†request.
The GapGun Pro system comes equipped to operate either non-contact (no stand-offs) or contact (with stand-offs).
The performances of the GapGun Pro system are ensured by the Sensor Head.
GapGun Pro’s uniquely modular design enables you to interchange sensors for 4 different fields of view. Switching for example from a super high resolution (7mm) 3¬Ķ sensor to a 80mm 40¬Ķ wide angle sensor.
The ergonomics of the system remains unchanged, only the sensor part is replaced in few seconds thanks to the VChange sensor interface.
The sensors heads are interchangeable to ensure the accessibility of certain measurements.
GapGun Pro was design for a use in industrial areas. This requirement is based on a robust design and a convivial interface.
All is implemented to help the operator people during measurement operation, with the visual IHM on the control screen and by green LED indicating that measurement can be done.
This design results in a high degree of accuracy and a great repeatability of measurements, making measurements independent of the operating people.
The GapGun Pro’s large colour touch screen is highly responsive, easy to navigate and best on the markey, with 4x the resolution than that of previous GapGun models. Readable in a huge array of conditions, the high definition screen displays measurement instructions, result and analysis.
VChange sensors have a Hi-Range measurements capability which dynamically adjusts laser output to allow measurement on multiple surface conditions.
GapGun Pro can measure anything from carbon fibre to high gloss black paint and chromes.
Set up the GapGun Pro either using its built-in teach mode, or via the GapGun Pro checkplan software on the PC. Thereafter, the GapGun Pro automatically synchronises both checkplans and measurement data in real-time with your corporate network, PC or laptop.
The GapGun Pro comes ready configured to measure a wide variety of common applications. You can create your own infinite variations on these initial building blocks.
View cross sections of the measurement area and results analysis on-screen using standard red/green colouring conventions and warning sounds to indicate « go/no-go » conditions.
GapGun Pro can fully customise its output and export results easily to Excel, CSV, PDF, SQL, XML and other file formats, as well as interface with most leading SPC packages such as QDAS.
GapGun Pro connects to SPC3d and shares with multiple GapGuns, to create bespoke
GapGun Pro interfaces with your PC by WI-FI feeding results into automatic measurement reports.
Different versions of the GapGun system exists, please find below the brochures for the GapGun Pro and GapGun RX product. For the complete range and more information, please contact us.
