Higher-resolution addition to AICON SmartScan range

The new AICON SmartScan R12 adds 12 MP camera quality to the established versatility of one of Hexagon’s most popular white light scanner technologies

17 October 2019

Today sees the launch of the AICON SmartScan R12, a new 12-megapixel version of the well-established white light scanning system from Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division. Building on a reputation for versatile measurement, this latest iteration of the SmartScan brings a higher level of resolution and accuracy to a system that is already prized for its versatility and easy portability.

The quickly and easily changed fields of view (FOVs) of the SmartScan make it a fringe projection system suited for every occasion, making it ideal for third-party metrology contractors whose equipment must meet the challenges of a wide range of varying applications and industries.

“This new release defines a new high-point for the SmartScan platform, bringing it to the top of its class of high-accuracy 3D optical scanners,” says Dr Dirk Rieke-Zapp, Commercial Product Manager for AICON Scanner systems at Hexagon. “With its range of easily adjustable FOVs, the SmartScan is a completely flexible measurement system capable of handling even dark and glossy surfaces. We’re confident this new 12-megapixel version will serve as the perfect entry-point for the high-speed, high-resolution and high-accuracy measurement of small-to-medium sized parts.”

As with other scanners in Hexagon’s AICON range, the SmartScan R12 will be completely compatible with turntable and turn-tilt units that allow for high-productivity semi-automated measurement processes. It is also combinable with AICON DPA Series photogrammetry solutions, allowing for extremely fast and accurate measurement of larger-volume components.

The AICON SmartScan R12 is available to order immediately from local Hexagon representatives around the world, with the first units shipping in November 2019.
