Scanning Systems

Scanning has become an integral part of both the product development process and life-cycle management once a product is in production. PADT has used our extensive experience providing scanning services to provide solutions to users who wish to bring scanning in-house. We pair scanning devices with a line of custom built computers and Geomagic software to deliver a solution that works.

Zeiss 3D Scanning Solutions

The leader in optics for generations is now the leader in 3D Scanning solutions, with both laser and blue light systems. With two families, COMET and T-SCAN, Zeiss has the right solution for your needs.

Both families are highly accurate and can be used for inspection or reverse engineering. They use the latest sensor technology, outstanding software, and of course the best optics available. Visit our Zeiss 3D Scanning page to learn more.

Geomagic Capture Scanner

The first scanning device that PADT recommends is the Geomagic Capture Scanner. A leader in price/performance, the Capture provides easier use and greater accuracy then hand-held laser scanners for about the same price.

Having the right computer is key to success in scanning. We see many people purchase a great scanner, but then connect it to an underpowered laptop or their CAD box and they are disappointed in the performance they get. Viewing and processing point cloud data is computationaly intensive, and a small investment in the right computer hardware can result in significant productivity gains.
