SURPHASER

Known for its unsurpassed accuracy and scan quality, the Surphaser line offers both short range and medium range models ideal for use in large volume measurement projects where the highest level of accuracy and data quality is needed.


Features

  • High scanning speed (> 1 million pps) combined with high accuracy and scan data quality
  • Two models with configurations covering ranges from 0.2 to 120 m
  • Ultra-low noise - sub-millimetre accuracy for all models
  • 3D scan intensity images similar in quality to 100Mpix digital photo
  • Robust, dust- and splash-resistant design allows Surphaser to operate in industrial and outdoor environments
  • Export of clean and accurate datasets into many 3rd party point cloud processing applications (Polyworks, RealWorks Survey, Leica Cyclone, Geomagic, etc.)
  • Light and portable - fits in a carry-on case approved for cabin luggage for most domestic airlines.

Applications

  • Reverse Engineering
  • Dimensional control
  • Historical projects
  • Architecture
  • Forensics
  • Animation
