3D digitalization and inspection company Shining 3D has debuted its FreeScan Combo as part of the FreeScan UE series of 3D metrology scanners at this year’s Automotive Testing Expo Europe. According to the company, the selling point of this new instrument is its lightweight, compact design: it weighs 620g and measures 193 x 63 x 53mm.

The FreeScan Combo can achieve a scanning speed of 1,860,000 points per second using the laser scan mode and 2,250,000 points per second in infrared mode. It is said to be highly accurate, enabling measurement according to VDI-VDE 2634-2 of 0.02mm while capturing a vast amount of data per second.

Scanning modes include 26 laser lines suitable for easy, large-area laser scanning, seven parallel laser lines for scanning fine details, one single laser line for obtaining 3D data from narrow areas such as holes, and an infrared mode to scan without markers.

The package offers an easy workflow and comes with powerful, user-friendly software that integrates connections to the most commonly used 3D inspection and design software, enabling scan data to be imported efficiently.

“We developed the FreeScan Combo to fundamentally enhance the way reverse engineering and quality control are done today. Integrating two 3D scanning technologies into a highly precise professional device, which perfectly fits the palm of the hand, is one thing. We round off this device by extreme ease of use and an amazing price-performance ratio,” said Sunny Wong, general manager.

Channel sales manager EMEA Gabriel Otero has been demonstrating how the FreeScan Combo can augment digital workflows and processes. He explained how the system works: “It integrates laser and infrared into a hybrid device that is compact and lightweight. Using our software, data can be translated quickly from a real object into a mesh and SDL file. We’ve already generated lots of leads [here at the show], which is great.”
