T-Scan Handheld Laser Scanner

One of the most important advantages of this system lies in the fact that objects can be digitized on-site in the production area or in the laboratory without time-consuming measurement preparation. The T-SCAN is an intelligent handheld laser scanner that can be used even by inexperienced staff. The scanner is moved over the object surface in a painting-like motion and acquires a high number of 3D coordinate points. To guarantee an intuitive operation, the scanning process is displayed in real-time on the monitor. With a scan width of 90 mm, even large objects can be quickly and easily digitized.

New Developments

New developments in the hardware of the T-SCAN laser scanner have made 3D data acquisition even easier and more efficient. The extremely compact and mobile system is the optimum solution for applications that require enhanced mobility, e.g. in the area of automobile interiors and exteriors. By integrating the control unit for the scanner and the tracking system into a compact trolle and a notebook PC, the system is easy to transport even where space is limited.

The tracking system, in conjunction with a tripod, is also highly compact and transportable. The new lightweight design and integrated cable routing of the scanner handle provides for a more ergonomic scanning motion. The T-Scan system also features new laser electronics for enhanced point density and data quality.

Effective and Precise 3D Digitizing

Capturing contour lines automatically and accurately is possible due to a variably adjustable point density within the scan line. The automatic point-to-point intensity control of the laser beam ensures a high measuring accuracy even on surfaces with varying optical properties (glossy, matte, etc.) without the need for special object preparation.

The T-Scan’s high measuring accuracy(length error + 0.1 mm at 3 m distance to tracking system) makes it excellently suited for demanding tasks including the digitization of large objects and quality control applications. The generation of a reference coordinate system and the online acquisition of polylines can easily be carried out by using a touch probe to define reference points.
