KSCAN 3d scanner

With the development of 3D technologies, 3D scanners have a rapid evolution in working efficiency and portability.

How Does KSCAN 3D scanner come out?

Handheld 3D scanners and structured light 3D scanners are widely applied to industrial 3D measurement. However, handheld 3D scanners can’t scan small objects with high resolution, while the structural light 3D scanner is difficult to effectively scan large workpieces. At present, no portable 3D scanner is able to simultaneously realize the following points:

  • Scanning large-scale with high volumetric accuracy (0.035mm/m) just by one machine
  • Scanning very small things with high resolution (0.01mm)
  •  Support contact measurement in certain conditions

ScanTech always focuses on researching and developing handheld 3D scanners since 2011. Based on various onsite demonstrations and customers’ feedback, we have an insight into the demands of 3D measurement in numerous applications. ScanTech experts went through the whole two years to transform the product’s concept into an unprecedented KSCAN 3D scanner. It sets a new trend for handheld 3D scanners. Besides, this new generation 3D scanner fully meets the requirements of industrial measurement with a turnkey solution. Therefore, the KSCAN 3D scanner was definitely born for metrology-grade measuring.

metrology 3d scanner

KSCAN 3D scanner forms its extraordinary strengths by merging all the functions of non-contact measurement:

  • Upgraded performance in accuracy, measurement rate, scan area, depth of field, hardware, assistant parts, user experience, etc.
  • Innovative functions in probing and edge detection. Get over with the demerits of traditional 3D scanners for measuring datum hole, hidden point, features, sheet metal, and hole & edge detection of sheet metal.
  • Multi-functional 3D software: ScanViewer supports different inspection functions such as pipe measurement, deformation detection and GD&T.

PRINCE dual laser 3D scanner, redefine industrial 3D measurement

when the concept of virtual reality became more and more popular In 2016, VR is well known by everyone,however,3D scanning technology is rarely noticed .3D scanning technology required for 3D remodeling is widely applied to architecture, business, medical, military, industrial, film and television effects, 3D printing, and the hottest VR, AR, etc.

Industria 3D measurement weakness:

There are two main 3D scanners in industrial 3D measurement field such as handheld 3D scanner with high portability and flexibility and camera 3D scanner with high resoultion and high detail,whose advantage are well known in current industry.
But there is no one handheld scanner combination these two scanner advantage,not only scan high detail tiny object,but also efficiently scan large volume.
There are different size modeling ,different requirement for detail and complex environment in 3D measurement field,which leads to a single camera or handheld laser scanner not solve all of scanning problems.So the user should decide to purchase two kinds scanners to meet different requirement.

Prince redefine industrial 3d measurement

Scantech launched Prince handheld dual laser 3D scanner combination with portability and high detail in 11th NOv,2016,which perfectly solve weakness in current industry ,easy to scan from tiny parts to plane.

Prince 3D scanner also combine Scantech efficient image graphic algorithm and Powerful data post-processing, its emergency is bound to overturn the tradition and redefine the industrial 3d measurement.

Prince 3D scanner core strengths

Prince is developed by Scantech for 2years with global pioneering band field depth technology, overturn traditional handheld 3d scanner working mode.

we analyze the difference between Prince 3d scanner and traditional hand-held 3d scanner, take parameter of Prince 335 as a example:

Dual scan mode: Red standard scan mode and Blue hyperfine scan mode. Two working mode can switch rapidly. Standard mode R inherit traditional 3D scanner function and effect; hyperfine scan mode B with ultra-detail capture same as high equipped camera 3d scanner. All data from two working mode is in same file without post-processing.

Fast scanning, equip with 129fps camera, scanning speed is twice higher than normal handheld 3d scanner
Extreme detail: resolution is up to 0.01mm,the detail degree is five times than normal handheld 3D scanner, greatly improve 3D data detail degree.

Prince 3d scanner debut in DMP exhibition (booth NO.3,3A17) in 29th Nov, for more information pls visit

Prince 3d scanner begin to receive reservation from December.

<h4>Scantech  crazy 3D lab activity</h4>

Scantech will start a month-long offline 3d scanning free experience in Hangzhou on 1th Dec,whether you are experienced or not,Prince will invite you to challenge its extreme detail,play with black technology together.
