stereoSCAN neo - the new dimension in fringe projection!

See What You Measure, with the digital adaptive full color projection technique

Fast and highly precise capturing of complex surface structures – the high-end white light scanner stereoSCAN performs it. Now, however, here comes a scanner hat is able to accomplish much more: the new stereoSCAN neo offers a unique technology, which extends the options of present scanning many times over. A milestone in system history!

The stereoSCAN neo is a consistent further development of the classic stereoSCAN system series. Previously, the fringe projection was highly dependent on the surface properties of the scanning object. The color and reflection properties of the surface significantly effected the quality of the measurement results. This is where the digital adaptive full color projection technique of the stereoSCAN neo provides the necessary rectification by using color and intensity control to optimally adjust to surface properties.

With the principle “See What You Measure“, AICON consistently continues its innovation strategy. For the first time, it is now possible to visualize the results of a measurement directly on the object. The adaptive full color projection technique enables not only projection of the color patterns which are necessary for the scanning process onto the object, but also of the measurement results. This allows for the deviations from the CAD to be visualized in color immediately following the measurement on the object surface.

This procedure provides the user with totally new possibilities during workflow. In the tooling and molding industry or in the context of model making, deviations of the component surface can be measured and visualized quickly and precisely by using the SWYM technology. Based on the pro-jected deviation images, corrections on the object can be made promptly. Even deviations in the context of inspection tasks can be made visible and rectified right away.

Equipped as 8 or 12 megapixel digital camera versions, the stereoSCAN neo provides the best arrangement required for the maximum degree of detail for the object acquisition process. By changing the camera lenses and the base length, measurement fields of 75 mm up to 1,100 mm can be captured. This make the stereoSCAN neo the most powerful and versatile white light scanner currently available on the market.
