Today saw the announcement of the Leica Absolute Scanner LAS-XL, a new ultra-large scale portable laser scanner from leading metrology and manufacturing solution specialist Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. Designed for industries and applications where both speed of measurement and metrology-level accuracy are indispensable, the expanded measurement field and point acquisition rate of the LAS-XL means large parts and surfaces can be fully digitised in far less time than ever before.

Operating on the same flying-dot scanning technology as the Leica Absolute Scanner LAS, the LAS-XL benefits from a scan-line width of up to 600 millimetres and a measurement stand-off distance of up to a full metre. The extreme flexibility this delivers makes the LAS-XL as ideal for mapping large blade surfaces as it is for digitising aircraft and rail carriage interiors. Accurate to within just 150 microns, the LAS-XL is suitable for the wide range of applications for which increased measurement speed is extremely valuable.

“What we’re seeing with our customers is that there is a huge range of applications out there for which much improved speed of measurement is more critical than unbeatable accuracy,” says Daniel Moser, Technical Product Director at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “The LAS-XL is our attempt to meet the needs of this part of the market that has until now been under-served by the metrology industry. Absolute Accuracy is a key part of our product philosophy, but sometimes really great accuracy done really quickly is the better solution.”

The LAS-XL is compatible with all Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 models and is available to order worldwide immediately.
