04 Inspection Process

Built-in Photogrammetry Ensures Accuracy


KSCAN-Magic has an accuracy of up to 0.020 mm and built-in photogrammetry that effectively reduces accumulated errors. It ensures that the final 3D data obtained for the aircraft radome and speed brakes are accurate and reliable.

Obtain Complete Data Efficiently

Photogrammetry: 2 min;
Scan duration: 3 min;
Data Processing: 5 min

Inspection with the KSCAN-Magic 3D scanner is 6 times faster than that with conventional measurement tools;
