Arm Based 3D Scanner

Arm Based 3D Scanner

Parts can be rotated in real-time relative to the Arm – meaning no difficult reaching around the object and no need to move the Arm to different locations during the measurement process. This results in improved measuring speed, reach, and user-friendliness, offering an easy-to-use solution that allows users to focus on the actual measurement and not on the measurement processes.




High Measurement

SpeedCapturing of necessary features with only small movements of the Arm / ScanArm and reduced need to reposition the device around large objects results in up to 40% reduction in the time it takes to scan a part or assembly.

Extended Measurement

VolumeA single device set-up allows users to reach and digitize features that would normally require multiple device locations, or a longer-reach arm.

Operator Effectiveness

The operator is now able to focus with minimal distraction and effort on the measurement of the part since the part is seamlessly rotated to the optimum orientation.

Workspace Optimization

The 8-Axis Edge allows complete measurement and scanning activities to be performed within a minimal footprint. Limited space required for device placement ensures optimized usage of the available work area.
