The Nikon Metrology ModelMaker H120 handheld laser scanner incorporates blue laser technology and Nikon optics.
Some benefits of the new scanner include scanner accuracy of 7 microns; measures at over 450 stripes every second on all materials; full Field-of-View indicator for precise scanning; real-time optimization of the laser for every single measured point; and designed for use under all shop floor or field conditions.
There are various applications for the scanner: multi-sensor 3D inspection; first article inspection against CAD model; inspection of geometric features; gap-and-flush inspection; reverse engineering: from concept studio clay to class A surfaces; and digitizing for additive manufacturing.
The 4th generation of Nikon’s Enhanced Sensor Performance (ESP4) provides real-time dynamic adjustment of the laser intensity for every point, the company reports. Users can scan across parts with strong color transitions and varying reflectivity from any direction , the company adds. ModelMaker scanners also benefit from intelligent reflection control, which allows users to measure very shiny or polished materials while unwanted reflections are filtered out.
