Exact Metrology, a comprehensive metrology service provider, recently released the Hexagon RS6 laser scanner, designed for high-speed and accuracy scanning. It scans up to 1.2 million points/sec with a scan rate of 300Hz. The RS6 also has a wider laser stripe of 150mm at mid-range and a visual guide that provides real time feedback for stand-off distance.

Built using Systematic High-Intelligence Noise Elimination (SHINE) technology, the RS6 laser scanner always delivers full scanning performance, even on the most challenging surfaces. Whether it’s a glossy black plastic automotive body part or a molded carbon-fiber component, this scanner scans without any reduction in quality or productivity. Furthermore, SHINE allows users to scan 99% of parts without touching the scanner exposure. With repeatable mounting (using the Absolute Arm 7-Axis), the scanner can be removed if necessary and replaced without need for calibration. The Hexagon RS6 laser scanner is certified ISO 10360 8 on all 7-axis RA8 Absolute Arms.

When compared to other scanners, the RS6 has 3x faster frame rate, 30% wider laser stripe, and excellent scanning performance on difficult surfaces with SHINE. With the arm mounted scanner, it is easier to measure due to less preparation, less set up, less settings and scans with full frame, with full line width, all the time.

Exact Metrology is ISO, AS9100 Certified as well as FFL and ITAR Registered.
