Accuracy & High Resolution

Featuring dynamic referencing and volumetric accuracy optimisation, this 3D measurement solution is engineered to work in harsh environments and deliver high accuracy on large measurements, regardless of the user’s experience level.

With its Real-Time Calibration capability, the MAX Series integrates the calibration step directly into the scanning workflow, performing it automatically and seamlessly for the user. Its Flex Volume feature also provides high precision and a fine level of detail on areas captured at a short distance.

  • Measurement accuracy insensitive to environmental instabilities
  • ISO 17025 accredited and compliant
  • Integrated photogrammetry
  • Fine detail capacity

Large Part Size & Speed

Due to its 38 laser lines and large scanning area, the HandySCAN 3D | MAX Series is the ideal 3D scanner for measuring large part sizes – up to 15 m – quickly and easily, providing metrology-grade results in mere minutes.

Its Flex Volume feature offers an adjustable, flexible working distance – from 0.3 to 2.5m. This means that the user can scan smaller areas with remarkable quality at a short distance and measure large parts at very high speed from a longer distance.

  • Quick setup and scanning process
  • Large and extendable measuring volume
  • Instant mesh and ready-to-use files

Versatility & Simplicity

The HandySCAN 3D|MAX Series can master any surface type, including shiny, oily, and even reflective finishes, and it does so without the need for surface treatment or part preparation.

With its sophisticated algorithms and image processing operation, the Smart Surface Algorithm feature optimises surface measurement, thus offering better tracking, better performance, and better readings of difficult, contrasted finishes.

  • Real-time mesh visualisation
  • Blue laser technology
  • Plug and play
