Laser Mapping is a non-contact, non-destructive technology that digitally captures the shape of physical objects using a line of laser light. Reflector dots are placed all around the object. Lasers reflect off the dots capturing a physical object’s exact size and shape into the computer world as a digital 3-dimensional representation.
3D laser scanning is ideally suited to the measurement and inspection of contoured surfaces and complex geometries which require massive amounts of data for their accurate description and where doing this is impractical with the use of traditional measurement methods or a touch probe.
