Scantech, a high-tech company specializing in the development, manufacture, and sales of 3D scanners and offering automated measurement solutions, is pleased to launch the latest optical 3D measurement system TrackScan-Sharp.

TrackScan-Sharp overview

TrackScan-Sharp, consisting of a portable 3D scanner i-Scanner and an optical i-Tracker, is a brand-new generation of Scantech’s optical 3D measurement system for measuring large-scale parts.

It brings optical measurement to a whole new level by offering a tracking distance of up to 6 meters, a volumetric range of 49 m3, and volumetric accuracy of up to 0.049 mm (10.4 m3). 

Engineered with i-Tracker’s on-board processor for pre-computation, 25-megapixel industrial cameras, and cutting-edge technologies, the TrackScan-Sharp is ideal for measuring large-sized parts or multiple parts at the same time without the hassle of moving trackers frequently.

Vast Applications

  • It boasts shadow-less-light edge detection with high-precision gray value measurement. Users can inspect closed features precisely, especially threaded holes. Good measurements are ensured by delivering accurate and repeatable measurement results such as positions and diameters.
  • Its highly-adaptive data acquisition algorithm ensures that the equipment can easily obtain the 3D data of objects with different surfaces and materials such as reflective, dark, and colorful surfaces.
  • It can be paired with a portable CMM T-Probe (optional with different lengths) to probe inaccessible areas, such as holes and hidden points. This contact measurement probe can deliver single-point repeatability of up to 0.025mm.
  • Its i-Tracker can be combined with tool simulators and path-planning software to form M-Track, an intelligent robotic path-planning and guiding system. The system comprises perception, planning, and execution modules, which cater to different applications such as grinding, coating, welding, and more.

Innovative Design

Made of aerospace-grade carbon fiber in a sphere shape, the i-Scanner is for heavy use. Its ergonomic handle can ensure the long-session use of the 3D scanner without causing much fatigue, which ensures free measurement.

The i-Tracker has an intuitive light band that shows the operating status in real time. Its hollow grille design helps cameras remain at a stable temperature throughout the scanning process.
