PrimeScan 3D scanner

Share this on social media:

With the new scanner line PrimeScan, AICON 3D Systems provides an attractive entry-level solution for highly precise 3D digitization of industrial components. The PrimeScan is an entirely new development. It works with the renowned AICON OptoCat software, and thus uses the same algorithms for fast creation of highly precise point clouds with highest data quality as the high-end scanner lines StereoScan and SmartScan.

The PrimeScan has a compact design: the base area equals a DIN A4 sheet, and the scanner weighs only 3 kg. The working distance is short. Thus, it is suitable as desktop solution and for applications under cramped spatial conditions in industrial surroundings. Measuring fields between 50 mm and 1000 mm are available. Hence, every component size can be optimally captured. Depending on the required resolution and precision, different camera resolutions are available: two, five or eight megapixel.

The PrimeScan is equipped with either blue-light-technology for industrial applications or white-light-technology for scanning with additional color information as required in arts, culture and design. The particularly powerful projector allows for the scanning of glossy and dark surfaces without pretreatment.

Carl-Thomas Schneider, Managing Director of AICON, highlights: “With the PrimeScan, we offer the perfect device for every application area. 24 fixed configurations with different resolutions and measuring fields are available. There is exactly the right solution for every measuring task.”

Tripods, turntables and photogrammetry are available as accessories to carry out automated measurements and to easier capture even large volumes.
