RS5 Laser Scanner

Effortless Productivity Through Advanced 3D Laser Scanning

Absolute-Arm-7-axes_Application_Kawasaki_5 The RS5 Laser Scanner is a removable 3D laser scanner designed for use with the Absolute Arm 7-Axis that delivers high-speed 3D scanning for surfaces and features whatever the finish or material. With its wide and horizontally-oriented laser scan line and fully-automatic exposure settings, the RS5 Laser Scanner makes non-contact 3D digitisation faster, easier and more accurate than ever.

The scanner can be easily removed from the Absolute Arm, to allow easier and safer access to touch probing functionality in hard-to-reach areas. It can be remounted with no need for recalibration – thanks to its completely repeatable mounting, you just clip it back in place and continue 3D scanning immediately. And with no trick settings that limit speed and scan-line width in order to deliver peak accuracy, the RS5 Laser Scanner delivers all the performance all of the time – maximum frame rate at maximum laser width.

The RS5 Laser Scanner is the pinnacle of 3D scanner technology, and in combination with the Absolute Arm 7-Axis delivers the ultimate all-round portable measurement solution for small-to-medium components.
