Handheld 3D Laser Scanner meets portability demands.

January 12, 2015

Equipped with MS Surface™ tablet, Freestyle3D offers real-time visualization by letting user view point cloud data as it is captured. Unit scans at distances up to 3 m and captures up to 88K points/sec with better than 1.5 mm accuracy. While self-compensating optical system allows immediate scanning without requiring any warm up time, memory-scan technology lets users pause scanning at any time and resume where they left off without requiring use of artificial targets.

Galvanometer/2D Scan Systems leverage digital encoder technology.

September 16, 2014

To offer maximum dynamic performance, single-axis dynAXISse galvanometer scanner units and intelliSCANse 2D scan systems leverage digital position detection approach that lowers moments of inertia of drives in high-precision semiconductor processing or micro-structuring. Digital se-encoder (SCANLAB encoder) uses zero-mass laser beam to sense stationary scale, eliminating need for additional inertia-increasing components while increasing reliability of micro-optical sensing.

Integrated Polygon Scanner increases USP laser productivity.

July 2, 2014

Hybrid polygon laser scan system is suited for line-by-line processing of surfaces via high-repetition USP (ultra-short-pulse) lasers. Two galvanometer scan axes correct typical deviations and imperfections in polygon wheel symmetry to achieve flexibility necessary for pixel-accurate processing. While working distance, integration of mechanical feed axis, and minimal process times suit industrial applications, system also suits mobile devices, electronics industry, and composites processing.
