An introduction to

Laser 3D Scanning Technology

Laser 3D scanning technology works by detecting objects as a series of points, and assembling those points into a mesh body. A laser is projected as a point onto a surface, and its distance from the scanner is measured through triangulation. After enough points are captured, they are stitched together into a 3D Mesh that is your object. This scanning works best at a short range, but large objects can be scanned with multiple passes and sections.

High Accuracy – 0.020 mm of scanning accuracy

Narrow-space Measurement Capabilities – Laser Scanning can offer a significantly steeper view angle compared to other types of scanning, which is great for scanning deep holes or narrow cavities.
