Planar 2D

Planar 2D Planar 2D

Planar is a 2D inspection machine that allows manufacturers to simply and quickly verify product quality by performing 2D inspection, CAD comparisons & reverse engineering in seconds.

Product Overview

The system can be used for very quickly measuring or reverse engineering flat parts which have been manufactured on laser, plasma and water jet cutting systems as well as punched and some stamped parts. We have been supplying the Planar system to the sheet metal industry for over fifteen years during which time we have consulted with many major manufacturers to fully understand the requirements expected from our measuring system and integrating these into the Planar.

There are Planar machines installed and operating in more than 30 countries worldwide and the list of countries is growing. Planar customers range from small job shops to multi billion dollar turnover companies covering almost every industry that uses sheet metal such as electronics & communication industries, automotive and aerospace.

Area of Interest (AOI)

The AOI option uses lights above the table to illuminate surface features, which can then by imaged and measured.

Speed & Accuracy

For speed we cannot be beaten by any other competing system. Planar can take up to 40 million measurements in 0.1 seconds. This makes our system the fastest in the world for both inspection and reverse engineering of flat parts. We also have the largest range of available models and accuracies available.

ISO 10360 guaranteed accuracy.


No moving parts to wear or fail. Vibration and scratch proof operation.

Available in a range of sizes and accuracies the Planar can be installed on the factory floor and is easy for shop floor staff to operate helping to cut expensive inspection bottlenecks.

With addition of the OptiScan 3D the system offers unparalleled non-contact 3D inspection capacity.

Planar 2D Model Range

Key Features

Largest Range of Models Available

Planar comes in a large selection of machine sizes. We can measure parts up to 3000mm x 1220mm (118" x 48") or 2355mm x 1570mm (93" x 62") in size at accuracies between +/- 12 microns and +/-100 microns (+/- 0.00047" to +/- 0.0039").

Inspect Parts Quickly and Automatically

Place a part on the table and with a single click or scan of a barcode within 15 seconds the Planar software can produce a full inspection report.

Ultra Fast Reverse Engineering

The world’s fastest system for reverse engineering flat parts.

SPC Integration

Inspecvision Planar systems can be fully integrated with QC Calc SPC software.

3D Scanning Add On

Add 3D scanning capability to Planar with the retro-fittable Opti-Scan3D module.

Optical CMM Add On

Add Micro-Probe option to the Planar for touch probe capability.

O-Ring Inspection

With minimal setup time Planar will in 0.1 seconds measure hundreds or even thousands of o-rings at a time, at 12 microns. The system then help you identify which o-rings have failed by overlaying the results onto an image of the measurement table.
