Home / Measurement & Inspection / Laser Scanners

Laser Scanners

This category includes systems and machines that utilize lasers to survey an object, a building, or a landscape, and then translate the data into full three-dimensional digital models of the piece being surveyed. Laser scanners are used in the manufacturing process in rapid prototyping, precision alignment, in material processing such as engraving or laser welding, laser and 3D printers, and for precision inspection, among other uses. Laser printers commonly employ multiple moveable mirrors to steer the laser system, along with a software system to control the scanner’s motion and to collect the resulting data. When paired with a coordinate measuring machine (CMM), laser scanners can be used to record data from larger devices, like automobiles.

Breakthrough Technology: Handheld LIBS for Fabricators

Almost every major pipeline owner/operator now either uses a portable LIBS device for verifying their materials or requires their non-destructive testing contractors to use it. Almost every major refinery uses one for carbon testing, as do the inspection companies that support their PMI/NDT programs. Here’s why.
