New scanner provides fast and accurate data for applications such as: reverse engineering, inspection, construction (BIM), product design, forensics, and heritage presentation

Exact Metrology is proud to announce the immediate availability of the new Artec Ray laser scanner, by Artec 3D, a world-renowned developer and manufacturer of professional 3D scanners and software. The Artec Ray Laser Scanner is ideal for scanning large objects like wind turbines, ship propellers, airplanes, and buildings while offering ultra-high precision and speed. With the ability to scan up to 110 meters away, this scanner offers submillimeter distance accuracy and best in class angular accuracy. In addition, data capture is cleaner than with any other 3D scanner of this type and keeps noise levels at an absolute minimum. As a result, post-processing time is greatly reduced.

Scanning with Artec Ray is made easy. Users need only place it on a tripod in front of the object they wish to scan and press the button. Portable and compact, the laser scanner can be set up easily indoors or outdoors. There’s no need to worry about finding a power source, since the internal battery lasts up to 4 hours.

Additionally, Artec Ray is equipped with software solutions. Once scanned, the scan is processed directly into the powerful Artec Studio, then seamlessly exported to reverse engineering software.

To obtain maximum benefits, Artec Ray can be paired with Eva or Space Spider handheld Artec scanners to scan hard-to-reach areas such as the interiors of cars or add intricate detail to a large-scale 3D model.
