Next week in the UK will be the TCT Show, a showcase of the latest 3D technologies. Manufacturers from all over the world will be coming together to unveil their latest products, and many of those manufacturers are already providing glimpses at what those products will be. One company that will be in attendance is 3D scanner manufacturer RangeVision, and they have not one but two scanners to showcase to the public.
RangeVision has been manufacturing structured light 3D scanners since 2010, and their Pro scanners have been popular for their detail, accuracy, and versatility. Customers can choose between two options: the 5M, which features a 5-megapixel industrial camera, or the 2M, which has a 2-megapixel camera. Both 3D scanners can scan a wide range of objects of varying sizes, thanks to four different scanning zones the user can switch between.
“The user can select the equipment depending on the desired outcome,” said Yuri Chaykin, Founder and CEO of RangeVision. “Owing to the superior calibration both models produce excellent results, while offering an optimal price/quality ratio.”
The Pro 2M has been used in a variety of fields including manufacturing and design, reverse engineering, quality control, science and education, and art and jewelry. It’s capable of taking high-resolution, detailed scans of even highly complex objects, which makes it popular for a range of applications. It offers accuracy of up to 0.018 mm and 3D resolution of up to 0.03 mm, with a scanning speed of about eight second. At the TCT Show, RangeVision will be presenting an updated version of the Pro 2M, which, according to the company, offers even more speed and simplicity than the original model.
Simplicity and ease of use were of utmost importance for RangeVision when they updated the Pro 2M. The new version requires very little setup time or effort on the part of the user during scanning, yet it still delivers the same high-quality scans that it did before. The user can now switch more quickly between scanning zones, and there’s no need to adjust the projector.
The other 3D scanner RangeVision will be showcasing is the Spectrum, which was first introduced last year. Also based on structured light technology, the Spectrum offers three different scanning zones and utilizes a 3.1-megapixel camera. Like the Pro line, the Spectrum is also capable of creating detailed, high-resolution scans of complex objects with varying sizes. It features accuracy of up to 0.04 mm and resolution of up to 0.072 mm. The lightweight scanner can be easily transported and is well suited to users who travel to many different locations.
The TCT Show will be taking place in Birmingham from September 26th through September 28th. RangeVision will be at Stand B37 with their European distributor, Abbas, so if you’re interested in learning more about the Pro 2M and the Spectrum 3D scanners, stop by and say hello.
