Portable Laser Scanner
Leica Absolute Scanner LAS-20-8 features an auto-adjustable laser intensity for different surface types.
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence released the new Leica Absolute Scanner LAS-20-8, a portable 3D laser scanner designed for large volume inspection applications. The Leica Absolute Scanner LAS-20-8 portable 3D laser scanner is designed to make gathering complex point-cloud data easier and quicker for shop-floor operators. The LAS-20-8 laser scanner offers excellent performance for manual freeform surface inspections even on shiny metallic or dark materials. Its user-friendly features minimize training requirements and give even the most inexperienced operators complete confidence in its use. LAS-20-8 is effective in measurement volumes of up to 60 metres and has an IP50 rating that allows it to be taken almost anywhere in the workshop. The scanner identifies itself to the tracker, enabling quick changes between scanning, probing and reflector measurements. A built-in guidelight leads the operator to the optimum measurement position and haptic, acoustic and visual feedbacks help ensure the best possible results. The laser intensity automatically adjusts to different surface types and operators can switch between pre-set measurement profiles using the main button of the scanner, so they can apply the right setup for each section of the part without needing to make adjustments in the software.
