3D laser scanning is a non-contact, non-destructive technology used to capture digital images of a manufactured part or object and provide information on the physical shape of that component.
The 3D data collected is used to create 3D models using laser light and straightforward mathematics. The models can then be used to create digital design files for manufacturers that can be utilized in the future. These scanners are available in either stationary or handheld configurations.
3D laser scanning’s dimensional inspection solutions offer automated approaches for production lines and facilities in various manufacturing industries, such as reverse engineering, QA/QC, mechanical dimensional inspection, architectural, and civil surveying, which all greatly benefit from the use of 3D scanning.
The automative industry also benefits from the use of 3D scanning, as it provides important quality control (QC) and quality assurance (QA) inspection throughout the production process
3D laser scanning are able to provide important dimensional data because they are capable of measuring complex geometries that require numerous measurements in order to create an accurate digitized model. It is particularly well-suited for instances in which traditional, contact-based measurement and inspection are impractical.
By collecting data using an industrial 3D laser scanner, a manufacturer can generate a highly accurate point cloud that serves as the representation of all the data gathered by the 3D scanning device. The point cloud data is used for such applications as reverse engineering of computer-aided design (CAD) data from manufactured parts and rapid prototyping.
Not only can these devices generate large amounts of 3D data, they are also fast and reliable. Because of their accuracy, efficiency, and overall capabilities, laser scanners are used across several industries to streamline design and production processes.
Some examples of their versatility include long-range laser scanners, or terrestrial laser scanners, which are capable of measuring large objects such as ship propellers, wind turbines, airplanes, and buildings. Lidar, or light detection and ranging, is another example of 3D laser scanning’s wide range of uses.
If you’re considering investing in a laser scanner or scanning system, you’re most likely aware of their features and capabilities. But remember that precise inspection in real-time is also highly beneficial when considering costs and profit, and is critical to meeting and maintaining strict specifications and standards.
Laser Scanning System Processes, Point Cloud, & Benefits
Industrial 3D laser scanners are capable of capturing tens of thousands of data points per second as the laser moves across the surface of an object, facility, or landscape.
The high speed at which large volumes of data are collected can shorten turnaround times to just a few days or even a few hours. Because the data collected are so dense, laser scanning systems are able to provide a thorough and highly-detailed report of whatever is being scanned. Below are some common methods for scanning, as well as info about how the scans perform data acquisition.
Benefits of 3D Scanning
High-Performance Laser Scanner Leases to Fit Every Need
Laser scanning provides high-accuracy and high-precision capabilities. As a measurement solution, it can make generating 3D data and digital information much easier. The ability to gather large volumes of data and automate reproducibility of 3D scanning shouldn’t be overlooked when you’re looking to improve your manufacturing processes.
If you’re thinking of acquiring a laser scanner in order to automate a pre-existing production line, or to improve on workflow efficiencies, consider leasing it through Excedr.
Our leasing program makes it easier to access expensive metrology equipment by spreading out the costs of the equipment over time, rather than requiring a huge payment upfront. Get in touch with us or request a 3D laser scanner lease estimate to learn more about our program and the costs of leasing a laser scanner or scanning system.
Interested in other laser-based technology? Our leasing program also offers leases for laser trackers, laser tracker system, and total stations.
This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
