The global 3D scanning market is projected to grow at an impressive CAGR of 11.4 percent between 2023 and 2032. Almost all major industries including aerospace, manufacturing, healthcare, and automotive use 3D scanning technology. The technology can help manufacture quality product parts while reducing manufacturing costs. It can also be used to reverse engineer parts that do not exist or are no longer available on the market.
3D scanning objects is not as straightforward as it seems. Only a professional with an in-depth understanding of different 3D scanning tools, methods, and techniques can create 3D models of parts. If you lack the expertise to 3D scan parts, outsource your project to a 3D scanning service.
Before reaching out to a provider for help, familiarize yourself with some of these 3D scanning tools. This is not an exhaustive list, but may give you a better idea of the specifications similar 3d scanning equipment on the market will address.
Like other Zeiss Metrotom CT systems, the Metrotom 800 utilizes the Zeiss Metrotom OS. It comes equipped with a flat panel detector. The positioning system of the Metrotom 800 has a welded steel design with three linear axes. Its length measuring system is an electro-optical reflected light system (photoelectric, resolution 0.2 ㎛)
➢ Tube voltage/power – 225 kV
➢ Maximum spatial resolution at 10 percent modulation transfer – 6 ㎛ or 83 Ip/mm
➢ Accuracy – 4+L/100 ㎛ (sphere center point error),probing error – 3 ㎛ PS (TS) and 4 ㎛ PF (TS), length measurement error –8+L/100 ㎛ E (TS)
➢ Flat panel detector – 1024 x 1024 (number of pixels), 200 x 200 (pixel size)
Zeiss Metrotom 1500 utilizes open X-ray technology. Its enclosure material is made of lead. The positioning system of the Metrotom 1500 features a welded steel design with three linear axes. Its length measuring system is an electro-optical reflected light system (photoelectric, resolution 0.1 ㎛)
➢ Tube voltage/power – 225 kV
➢ Measuring range – dia. 350 mm x 300 mm

ATOS Q uses proven ATOS technologies such as the blue light equalizer (utilizes a fringe projection technique to capture data swiftly without compromising accuracy) and active temperature management. GOM’s projection technology works with narrow-band blue light to filter out ambient light during image acquisition. It can be configured with rotary tables, like the GOM USB 350.
➢ Points per scan – 8 million
➢ Measuring area – 100 mm x 70 mm-500 mm x 370mm
➢ Point distance (in mm) – 0.04 mm-0.15 mm
➢ Working distance – 490 mm
The Xcel 9-15-9 comes equipped with PC-DMIS software. It features Renishaw probe heads PH10M and PH10MQ, designed to sense discrete points on a surface and re-orientate the probe continuously to any of the 720 positions at 7.5°
➢ X-axis travel – 35.4”
➢ Y-axis travel – 59.1”
➢ Z-axis travel – 35.4”
