How do 3D laser scanners work?

3D laser scanning is the process of collecting 3D data, usually with a laser line scanner. A line of laser light passes over the surface being scanned, and the shape of the surface distorts the laser beam, and with the aid of a camera, and triangulation, the distortion becomes 3D point data. As the scanner is moved across the surface, more lines of scan data are collected, and a resulting 3D point cloud is produced.

3D laser scanning range

World-class 3D laser scanning products.

Our range of 3D laser scanning systems come as part of a portable measuring arm solution.

The range includes RPS Metrology R-Scan and S-Scan systems, Kreon Technologies Solano Blue and Skyline range for API and COORD3 branded arms and the Hexagon-manufactured 3D scanner for the Verisurf Master3D Gage

Software offered as standard for the range of scanners Verisurf, although other packages can be supplied.

R-EVO S-SCAN and R-EVO R-SCAN scanners

RPS Metrology

The R-SCAN BLUE Laser Line Probe is an optically-superior blue laser technology, based on R-EVO 7 axes arm. It delivers very good scanning results with higher resolution and low noise, enabling it to capture smaller details in an object. The blue laser provides a fast and accurate solution for 3D Inspection or Reverse-Engineering.
The R-SCAN with its 400Hz sample count frequency gives a new level of experience for a lightning-fast acquiring speed.

Similarly, the S-SCAN BLUE Laser Line Probe, is an optically-superior blue laser technology, based on R-EVO 7 axes arm. It delivers very good scanning results with higher resolution and low noise, enabling it to capture smaller details in an object.
