HandySCAN 3D Laser Scanners

HandySCAN 3D Laser ScannersHandySCAN 3D handheld scanners have been optimized to meet the needs of engineers in pipeline integrity assessment, looking for the most effective and reliable way to acquire 3D measurements of physical objects.

Creaform’s flagship metrology-grade scanners underwent a complete re-engineering, building on their core assets. They are now more portable and even faster at delivering accurate and high-resolution 3D scans, while remaining very simple to use.

The Creaform Pipecheck solution has two different 3D models of laser scanners to choose from, depending on the required level of accuracy.

When accuracy meets portability, introducing the HandySCAN 3D scanners.

HandySCAN 300

HandySCAN 300

Looking for the most efficient way to accurately digitize material loss and mechanical damage? The HandySCAN 300 is a reliable tool that will help you get there.

HandySCAN 700

HandySCAN 700

The HandySCAN 700 offers increased accuracy and resolution. It is the most versatile 3D scanner on the market for inspection. The acquisition speed of the HandySCAN 700 will simply blow your mind.


TRUaccuracy: Accurate measurements in real life operating conditions

  • Metrology-grade measurements: A dynamic link between the pipe and scanner preserves accuracy and resolution in any field conditions, including vibrating environments.
  • High quality results: within a ± 50 micron accuracy.
  • TRUaccuracy on the pipe: Enhanced virtual pit gauge capabilities. Pit gauge configuration automatically adapted near welds to ensure the most accurate measurement.
  • In-line Correlation: Assess ILI performances by comparing pig data against Pipecheck data to help determine with more precision the sites that actually need to be dug.
  • Corrosion depth inside a mechanical damage: Unique and sophisticated tools to extract corrosion depth inside a mechanical damage.

TRUportability: 3D scanning wherever you need to go

  • On-the-go scanning: Take it from place to place or use it in-house or on-site.
  • Lightweight and small: weighs 0.85 kg; can reach confined areas. Fits into a carry-on.

Speed: Fastest path from physical objects to your design or inspection workflow

  • Scanning speed: 80 times faster than pit gauge technique.
  • Self-positioning device: No need for encoders or bulky mechanical scanners to reference the data.
  • On-site reporting: Results generated within a few minutes.

TRUsimplicity: Very simple 3D scanning process

  • User-friendly: The scanning process and analysis are intuitive and accurate, regardless of the inspector's skills.
  • Follows code regulation (ASME B31G)
  • Real-time visualization: Thanks to VXremote, the Creaform optimized remote desktop application, data acquisition can be viewed in real time.
  • Flexible: Makes it possible to reach confined areas
  • Simple: Easy and quick to learn.
