Scanner offers 3D data capture and object inspection.

Press Release Summary:

Handheld T-Scan provides rapid non-contact digitization of large objects at rate of 7,000 points/sec, with accuracy up to 50 microns. Device is insensitive to all types of surfaces, eliminating need for surface preparation. T-Probe is a wireless, shock-resistant CMM used for measurements of small and large objects within 30 m volume. T-Scan and T-Probe work in tandem with LTD800/700 laser tracking systems for industrial measurement with 6° of freedom.

Leica Geosystems' New T-Scan High-Speed Scanner Debuts at WESTEC 2005 in Los Angeles, CA

Leica T-Scan Featured in Hourly Demonstrations

Norcross, GA - March 22, 2005 - The Metrology Division of Leica Geosystems announced today it will feature its newest Local Positioning product - the Leica T-Scan hand scanner - at the WESTEC 2005 Exposition & Conference, L.A. Convention Center, Los Angeles, California, from April 4-7, 2005. Leica's T-Scan and T-Probe work in tandem with the top-of-the-line LTD800/700 laser tracking systems, and deliver unprecedented capabilities for unfettered industrial measurement with six degrees of freedom. Leica Geosystems leads the industry with more than 1,400 tracker systems installed worldwide in the automotive, aerospace, and general engineering industries.

At Leica's Booth #4316, the company will conduct hourly demonstrations of its PCMM (portable coordinate measurement) systems for 3D data capture and object inspection. The demonstration will showcase the T-Scan, a high-speed handheld scanner that is used for rapid non-contact digitization of large objects at a rate of 7,000 points per second, with accuracy of up to 50 microns. The device is insensitive to all types of surfaces, therefore eliminating the need of surface preparation. Leica application engineers will measure and inspect both aerospace and automotive components.

WESTEC visitors will also get a close-up view of the T-Probe, the world's first complete 'Walk-Around CMM' that is both wireless and shock-resistant. The device is used for hand-held rapid measurements of small and large objects within a 30m volume. The demonstration will also cover the LR200 coherent laser radar, an optical CMM with scan rates up to 1000 points per second, in a volume of up to 120 meters, with accuracy up to 100 microns. The LR200 can capture single point-to-point measurements and scan object surfaces.

Leica Geosystem's metrology product line delivers the industry's most essential tools to capture measurements with unprecedented precision, speed, and flexibility in the most demanding industrial environments.
