The following sections outline how to place cylindrical objects in the Scan360™ and how to scan in ScanProof™.
The following topics are covered:
- Placing a Sample
PLACING A SAMPLE
The following steps outline how to place a cylindrical object:
- Adjust the Support Guides on both Support bars to match the width of the cylindrical object to be scanned, leaving some space on each side.
Note: For cylindrical object with ridges, adjust the Support Guides to be positioned outside the ridges (i.e., on the raised part). It may be necessary to insert a Scan360 Sleeve into the cylindrical object to add weight and to maintain the cylindrical object’s shape.
- Place the cylindrical object in the Scan360 and hold its underside with your hand.
- Raise the cylindrical object until it rests against the CCD housing and the Red LED light turns on.
- Holding the cylindrical object in place, press the Up button until the limit-clicking noise is heard.
Note: To accelerate the raising of the Support bars, keep the Up button pressed and press the Set Distance button simultaneously.
- Once the Support bars have reached their limit, press the blue Set Distance button. The distance between the cylindrical object and the CCD housing is automatically adjusted and the Green LED turns on.
A typical inspection involves the comparison of a scanned Master cylindrical object compared to a scanned Sample cylindrical object.
The following steps outline how to scan using Scan360.
- Ensure the sample is placed correctly in the Scan360 and the Green LED sensor light is turned on.
- When a cylindrical object is not placed correctly in the Scan360, a message displays.
- From the File Menu -> Setups drop-down menu, select or create a Scan360 setup.
Note: Scan360 scans at 600 DPI. Ensure that the ScanProof setup has the Desired DPI set to 600.
- Click the Scanner drop-down menu and click Select Source to display the Scanner Selection window.
- Select Scan360 and click Select.
- Click the Scanner drop-down menu and select Scan Master or Scan Sample.
- The Scan360 window should display.
- Click Preview to preview the image at a lower DPI and adjust the scanner settings (the preview image scans at 200 DPI).
- Click Scan to scan the cylindrical object and load the image in ScanProof.
