Hexagon Metrology has launched a new generation of the Leica T-Scan. Suitable for non-contact laser scanning, this scanner provides immediate feedback for after design iterations.
The Leica T-Scan 5 is 15% faster and has almost double the stand-off distance, a company press release states. The higher scan rate allows for enhanced feature recognition, smaller detail detection and overall scan quality. Design engineers can use this device for a variety of surfaces, from black matte to carbon fiber and even reflective materials. The scanner also includes a dual-color guide light and acoustic feedback.
Used with Leica Absolute Tracker AT901, the Leica T-Scan can be used for aerospace, automotive, ship building and earth-moving industries. There are also additional applications in robotics and automation, where inspections implement maximum laser tracking and machine performance.
“For years the Leica T-Scan has stood for reliability and accuracy in any shop-floor conditions. With no need of object preparation, the Leica T-Scan 5 system has never been as simple to install and to use,” states Michael Lettau, product manager for Hexagon Metrology.
