The world's first 3D scanner that can measure surfaces and edges in 3D.

The system uses a high speed, high resolution industrial camera and an LED DLP projector to scan the surfaces of an object. 

Patterns of light are beamed from the projector onto the part, these patterns are distorted by the part and this is recorded by the camera and used to create surface measurements.


3D Edges

Additionally a back-light can be used to capture the silhouette of the part. This silhouette image is then converted into 3D edge measurements using our patented Planar Edge 3DTM technology.

3D edges are essential when measuring sheet metal parts as the critical features such as hole size and position are defined by the part’s edges, not it's surfaces. Competing 3D scanners can acquire measurements of surfaces but are notoriously bad at acquiring measurements of edges.

The Opti-Scan is the only system in the world which can accurately measure surfaces and edges in 3D.



Single Click Inspection

We achieve high levels of automation by adding a rotational table and tilting mechanism. This arrangement has been carefully chosen to create a viewing hemisphere which allows scans to be acquired from all visible surfaces of the component.

The rotational table has a ring of reference markers which locate the table relative to the scanner. This removes the need for high precision, expensive, delicate, moving parts which would need to be recalibrated and maintained.

The result is an unprecedented level of accuracy and automation. The system can inspect most 3D parts by simply placing the part on the table and scanning a bar code, or clicking a button.



Mobile Large Volume Scanning

The Opti-Scan can also be used as a portable 3D scanner by placing the scanning head on a tripod. 

Large objects can be measured by attaching repositioning markers to the surface of the part or to a measuring bench or area. These markers are then used to automatically stitch the scans together. In this configuration almost any size of object can be measured.

The system is also available as a retrofit to our Planar 2D machines. Furthermore our Opti-Probe device can be used by the Opti-Scan to probe hidden features. 

All of our Opti-Scan systems use at least 18MP cameras, this resolution is several times larger than the nearest competing product, which typically use 5MP or even 1MP cameras. All Opti-Scan 3D units capture object texture and geometry, color cameras are available on request.
