The market-leading 3D laser scanner - Absolute Scanner AS1
Perfect for scanning shiny materials.
The Hexagon Absolute Scanner AS1 is the flagship 3D scanning sensor for Absolute Tracker AT960 and Absolute Arm 7-Axis systems. Using cutting-edge blue-laser technology and advanced programming, it combines ‘always-on’ maximum performance with simple usability to deliver high-productivity non-contact 3D measurement. Thanks to a ground-breaking modular cross-platform technology concept, the same scanner unit can be used for both portable measuring arm and laser tracker measurement, without even the need for realignment when switching.
Powered by our innovative SHINE – Systematic High-Intelligence Noise Elimination – technology, the AS1 has no hidden settings that limit speed and scan-line width in order to deliver peak accuracy.
Measurement accuracy to within just 50 microns across the entire 60-metre diameter measurement volume when used with an Absolute Tracker.
Complete Scanning System Accuracy to within just 43 microns with Absolute Arm measurement.
Low noise, big data
Up to 1.2 million points per second of high-quality measurement data, even when scanning shiny materials that often require spray with other scanners.
Digitise large surfaces quickly with data collected at 300 lines per second with no need to reduce laser line width or point spacing.
The extra-wide mid-range scan line width of 150 millimetres makes digitisation of large parts and surfaces fundamentally faster by covering more surface area with each scan pass.
The advanced algorithms of our SHINE technology allow you to digitise almost any surface type with the default exposure settings, from glossy black plastic automotive body parts to moulded carbon-fibre components, making high-quality measurement easier than ever with no high-level training required and operator variability eliminated.
Switching between measurement profiles and executing of macros and other software functions is fast and easy direct from the scanner with the AP21’s programmable Quick Access buttons and the Absolute Arm’s OLED touch screen wrist display.
Weighing in at just 400-grams, the AS1 is light and easy to move, minimising the user fatigue that is one of the most common causes of inaccurate and unreliable measurement results.
Lightweight design of the scanner carries through to the controller, which can be mounted directly on the tracker stand.
A laser-projected range finder helps users measure more accurately and efficiently by helping ensure the scanner is positioned correctly relative to the part being measured.
A direct digital input/output function built into the scanner controller allows robot movement and scanning tasks to be managed without a dedicated automation interface for laser tracker automation setups.
The modular concept of the AS1 allows for quick and easy serviceability, as well as device sharing between measurement teams and locations.
Fit the AS1 to a handheld Absolute Positioner AP21 unit to measure over large volumes with an Absolute Tracker, or switch to an Absolute Arm 7-Axis for smaller-scale measurement, with no realignment required when switching.
