Ai820 Automated 3D Scanner

The ShapeGrabber Ai820 automated 3D scanner is ideal for larger complex shaped parts that vary in size and shape and for which speed, complete coverage, and ease-of-use are important. The optional horizonal access provides even more part coverage and versatility for a wide range of part sized and geometries.

The ShapeGrabber Ai820 3D scanner is ideal for quickly scanning parts that vary in size and shape. With the Ai820 automated laser scanner, users can reduce inspection time and greatly enhance part coverage while increasing customer satisfaction by reducing defects and providing proof that specs are met.

Rapid and efficient inspection scans also reduce production equipment downtime, material waste, and human inspection error.

Our fast, accurate 3D scanners help manufacturers improve product quality and compliance without slowing down production. ShapeGrabber automated scanners provide:

  • Ease of use – no need to write special code to scan each object
  • Speed – fast and simple to scan a part without complicated, time consuming orientation and alignment processes
  • Efficiency – significantly reduce the time required to completely scan a shape, reducing the cost associated with executing the job
  • Visualization – easy to interpret and share results to quickly identify and understand part issues
