Anti-Reflection Coating helps ensure laser scanning accuracy.

Press Release Summary:

Providing thin and uniform adherence to surfaces, Helling 3D Scan Spray eliminates pooling and clumping that negatively impact scan data accuracy. Spray also washes off with water. With average particle size of only 2.8 microns, spray produces exact-copy object scans with near-zero reflectivity interference.


Original Press Release:

Laser Design Releases Ultra-Thin and Uniform-Covering 3D Anti-Glare Scan Spray

Minneapolis, MN – Laser Design, Inc. (LDI), a global provider of dimensional inspection and 3D scanning equipment and services, now offers a new anti-reflection coating for achieving optimal accuracy during laser scanning.

Reflectivity is detrimental to 3D data acquisition, so it is often necessary to apply an anti-glare coating to objects before 3D scanning. Helling 3D Scan Spray, from Helling GmbH and distributed in North America by Laser Design, is a great option for this due to its thin and uniform adherence to surfaces. This eliminates pooling and clumping that negatively impact scan data accuracy. The spray also washes off easily with water.

Helling 3D Scan Spray was specifically developed to deposit layers at a controlled thickness. Traditional 3D scan sprays are not designed to regulate thickness, which affects the integrity of the captured 3D scan data. With an average particle size of only 2.8 microns, only Helling 3D Scan Spray produces exact-copy object scans with near-zero reflectivity interference.

That thin layer of spray has benefits beyond accuracy. LDI’s scanning services division replaced their developer-based spray with Helling 3D Scan Spray earlier this year, and its 3D scanning technicians quickly noticed how much less anti-glare coating they are now using. LDI’s lead scanning technician noted, “I only need about half as much coating as before so this superior-performance spray is actually saving us money.”
