3-D Laser Scanning Probes

August 13, 2007
Surveyor Laser Probes (SLP) are 3-D laser scanning probes. Both of the new SLP models, the SLP-250 and the SLP-2000, deliver virtually noise-free scan data as a result of proprietary advances in the electronics and optics architecture. The SLP-250, with a laser line length of 25 millimeters, scans at high speeds with an accuracy of up to ±6 micrometers and is primarily used for small or highly detailed objects. The lightweight SLP-2000, with its laser line length of 200 millimeters and accuracy of ±80 micrometers, is a 3-D laser scanning solution for large parts. SLP models are available with the company’s fully integrated DS-Series line of CMM-based scanning systems. In response to the needs of the automotive, aerospace and other industries, the probes are made to be fully integrated with the portable 7-axis arms from Faro, as well as with the Renishaw PH10 indexing system used on most traditional CMMs. The probes interface to PCs using a standard USB connection.
