HandySCAN 3D | SILVER Series delivers accurate and reliable 3D measurements

Accuracy

The HandySCAN 3D | SILVER Series delivers accurate and reliable 3D measurements regardless of the measurement setup quality and the user’s experience level. Featuring dynamic referencing, both the scanner and part can move freely during scanning, and an accurate and high-quality scan can still be obtained.

  • Accuracy
    Up to 0.030 mm (0.0012 in)
  • Volumetric accuracy
    0.020 ± 0.060 mm/m (0.0008 in ± 0.0007 in/ft)
  • High repeatability and traceable certificate
  • High level of detail
