Long Range High Definition Scanning

Long Range Scanner

Long range scanner and PCMM technologies give you the unrivaled ability to measure large or distant objects quickly and accurately.

High Definition Scanner Highlights

For a smaller number of precise measurements, we offer two types of PCMMs. In ranges up to 33 feet, the optical tracker provides touch probe measurement with the freedom to move anywhere in the field of view (FOV). The other option, which allows measurements up to 525 feet away, is the laser tracker. This tracker targets a precise, spherical reflector.

For high definition measurement applications, we use laser scanner technologies that produce from 50,000 to over 1,000,000 measurements per second. The capture rate is just as impressive as the range. With the inventory of large-scale metrology tools that we carry, objects can be measured at ranges of 20 to 900 feet.

Our long range laser scanners are typically set up in multiple locations to collect very large data sets. The data set from each location generates a point cloud and each of the point clouds are then stitched together to create a 3 dimensional space. Many times we are asked to surface the point cloud to generate a workable CAD model for our customers. These CAD models are generally used for factory/shop floor layout plans, power plant equipment change outs, proof dimensioning and fit for large scale interior or exterior buildings, statues and historic architecture preservation.
