3D scanning for inspection

Engineers and metrology experts from top manufacturing companies that produce everything from automotive parts to medical equipment choose 3D coordinate measuring systems for their submillimeter accuracy, speed, and unbeatable ease of use – even when working with soft materials, objects with complex geometries, or freeform shapes.

Unlike traditional manual and contact-based measuring tools, which are often slow, time-consuming, and difficult to use, Artec scanners can with minimal training be quickly and efficiently used in design inspection, manufacturing control, delivery inspection, and more.

Benefits

Target-free

Artec scanners do not require any additional tracking accessories such as positioning targets or reference spheres. You can fire up the scanner, point it at the part you want to inspect, and start scanning right away. If you do want to use these add-ons in your workflow, though, Artec scanners can work with them, too.

Ergonomics and portability

Unlike traditional contact-based measuring tools, Artec scanners are lightweight and fully portable, able to be taken to a part or an object that you want to inspect. The scanners can be used both around the office and out in the field.

Up to 35 mln points/s

With Artec 3D measuring technologies you get highly detailed information about the scanned object in record time.

From 0.8 kg

Artec 3D solutions are lightweight and give you total flexibility and freedom over the QI process.
