It’s true: we have completely reengineered our MetraSCAN 3D laser scanner, in order to help Quality Control and reverse engineering experts face the increasing quality standards brought forward by manufacturers everywhere. Curious about what our new shop floor 3D scanner has to offer? Here are a few highlights.
We are talking about the fastest 3D scanner on the market here! It is actually no less than 12 times faster than the previous generation, with a measurement rate of 480,000 measurements per second. Meaning, it gets the job done quicker than any other 3D scanner, period.
Fastest 3D scanner on the market: 12 times faster than the previous generation
The MetraSCAN 3D is 1.5X more accurate than before, and this, whatever the environment-related conditions and instabilities. Its volumetric accuracy is an impressive 0.064 mm (0.0025 in.) It is very efficient even on black, shiny or multicolored surfaces.
Accurate measurement of parts ranging from 0.7 to 33 feet in size
We simplified the MetraSCAN 3D components and rethought its usability, in order to make it much more portable. Buttons located directly on the 3D scanner interact with the VXinspect dimensional software without the need to return to your computer, making it possible to solely focus on the part QC inspection. We furthermore isolated the grip from the structure of the MetraSCAN 3D, leading to a more rigid setup and less deformation. And by the way, we reduced its weight by 25%! From an ergonomics point of view, it is now much more comfortable to handle, leading to an extended use whenever the workload requires it.
Optimized for use on the shop floor
But it doesn’t stop there! You can find out more about all the MetraSCAN 3D’s new features and technical specifications on our Website. We put a strong focus on our customer base real-life application needs to enhance this product, and we are very confident it is the flexible tool you need to foster productivity and quality on the production line.
The redesigned MetraSCAN 3D is part of our comprehensive solution for quality control, manufacturing process and product development, which was created to help you broaden your QC procedures. Through our new HandyPROBE Next portable CMM, you can additionally add single-point measurements to your inspection sequence, so make sure to check it out!
