3D Laser Scanning Services

3D Laser Scanning Equipment

Carolina Metrology makes use of a ROMER Absolute portable arm CMM with an integrated laser for 3D laser scanning.
Being portable, the Romer arm allows for 3D laser scanning at our dimensional inspection lab or on location, even on your shop floor. Scanning on location avoids the inconvenience of shipping out large parts or fixtures and can provide quick feedback for adjustments.

3D Laser Scanning Software

PolyWorks is the software that Carolina Metrology uses on it's 3D laser scanner. PolyWorks makes everything from dimensional inspection, to point cloud analysis to reverse engineering possible without the need to change software for each application. Some typical applications for 3D Laser scanning include:
  • complex 3D parts
  • verification of fixtures
  • gap and flush verification
  • part to CAD analysis
  • reverse engineering
  • ..many more..

About 3D Laser Scanning

3D Laser Scanning is a non-contact method to gather large amounts of point data from an object using a line of laser light. The points gathered can then be utilized in a number of ways, the most common being color mapping of deviation of a real object to a CAD model.
3D Laser scanning is also used in reverse engineering to create a CAD model from a real object. Depending on the 3D laser scanner configuration, scanned objects scanned can be micrometers small or larger than a jumbo jet.
