Central Scanning's latest 3D scanning system.
British 3D digitizing and verification firm Central Scanning have been using their Surphaser laser 3D scanner now since January and the sub millimetre resolution large volume scanner has allowed for fast and accurate global measurements.
The Surphaser has not only been used for reverse engineering and historical preservation but also large vehicle scanning to speed up the design process where current CAD data at the required level isn’t available.
Users of the Surphaser scan data have realised the benefits of using a large volume scanning system to obtain data quickly and efficiently of vehicle interiors. This data has then been converted to basic CAD geometry for use within Solidworks and other CAD packages thus creating a sound base for their design team to work with.
Vehicle interiors aren’t the only interiors that have been captured with the Surphaser scanner. Museum and historical facilities have found the benefits to be outstanding….
“We really enjoyed the ease of use with the Surphaser scanner, and the data was much cleaner than we anticipated. Definitely use it again” said a Central Scanning Client
The Surphaser is able to do this thanks to advancements in laser technology and software algorithms that allow for temperature compensation. Also improvements in laptop performance allow for clean data processing.
Central Scanning’s Director Nick Godfrey said, “The Surphaser is a great addition to our business on a technical level we are able to enhance our scanning capabilities, and broaden not only our scanning capabilities but knowledge too. Thanks to the changes in laser scanning capabilities the data is very clean with minimal processing required.”
Central Scanning will be exhibiting at the TCT Show from today until Thursday from stand D21, pop by and see some of the examples of their fantastic work.
