3D Laser Scanning is the process of obtaining 3D images of surfaces and models using lasers.
3D Laser Scanning
Laser scanning technology dates back to the 1960s. The first 3D scanning devices used lights, cameras and projectors to accomplish the task. It was very difficult to scan objects due to the size of the components used and technological limits.
Today, thanks to the developing microprocessors and sensor technologies, scanning objects has decreased from hours to seconds. By sending 1.65 million laser dots per second onto the object with crossed laser beams, the data collection rate has reached tremendous speeds.
In theory; After the laser beams emanating from the source fall on the object, the data collection process takes place thanks to the camera sensors that follow the movements. Instant data formation is reflected on the computer screen in milliseconds. Thus, the dynamic measurement process is performed.

3D Laser Scanning Process An object to be laser scanned is placed on the bed of the digitizer. Special software runs the laser probe over the surface of the object. The laser probe projects a line of laser light onto the surface, while the 2 sensor cameras continuously record the changing distance and shape of the laser line in three dimensions (XYZ) as it travels through the object.

FAST ACCURATE REPEATABLE
The greatest feature of metrology-grade laser scanners is that it performs measurement repetitions stably. The most important regulation demanded from measurement devices, especially in quality control processes, is that they are repeatable.
Preferred for Large-Scale Part Measurements
With the mobile features of the 3D Laser Scanner systems, it enables the “on-site” measurement of parts that cannot enter the laboratory environment. Their operational competencies are at a high level, as the installation and operation times are very short. The ability to work in open or closed areas is another advantage that distinguishes laser scanning systems. It is the system that is frequently preferred especially in heavy manufacturing industry such as large-scale casting factories.
