3D scanner industrial pioneer increases scan speed up to 10 times.
13 November 2012 – Ottawa, Canada – ShapeGrabber, a pioneer in the development of 3D laser scanners for industrial measurement and modeling, today announced the availability of its fastest scanhead to date. The SG156 scanhead delivers a scanning speed gain of 2 to 10 times as compared to previous models, as well as a larger sensing range and greater stability in temperature variations.
Pierre Aubrey, CEO at ShapeGrabber said: “The SG156 scanhead represents the sixth generation of our industrial 3D scanner technology and features a new design with an improved laser, lens, imager and mounting mechanism. It will enable our existing customers to more than double their output speed. With the addition of field of view compression, the speed increase can exceed a factor of ten. Based on extensive internal testing, a speed increase of 4 or 5 times will be typical. New customers will enjoy the most advanced 3D scanning technology platform on the market today.”
DENTSPLY Implants ATLANTIS division, supplier of digital implant solutions and CAD/CAM abutments, has been using ShapeGrabber scanners for more than 7 years, processing thousands of dental models each week at facilities in Sweden and in the U.S. DENTSPLY Implants is now using the new SG156 scanhead in all its ShapeGrabber scanners.
