Scantech SIMSCAN 42

Single-handed control, ultra portable

SIMSCAN, the only hand-sized 3D scanner in the market so far, is a disruptive innovation of the traditional 3D scanners’ structure and a revolutionary product in 3D optical metrology industry.

Single-handed Control

The SIMSCAN portable 3D scanner boasts a full-metal housing that offers exceptional protection and durability. With a weight of only 570 g and dimensions of 203 × 80 × 44 mm, it provides unparalleled ease of use, allowing for effortless one-handed scanning of any object.

Because of its hollow structure, it dissipates heat more effectively. The 3D scanner is efficient at performing measurements with low power consumption. Thanks to its versatility, it can meet a wide range of needs of 3D measurements.

Narrow-space Measuring Booster

Compared with its competitors, SIMSCAN has a much shorter camera distance of 130 mm, which forms a steeper view angle to 3D scan narrow spaces. Therefore, SIMSCAN is more capable of capturing accurate and complete data in hard-to-reach areas like deep grooves and ensures users to capture full-field data.

Detail, Everywhere

With its built-in HD cameras and three scanning modes, it realizes high-precision scanning with up to 0.020 mm accuracy. It can accurately capture the 3D data of objects with complex surfaces or confined areas.

Remarkable Portability

SIMSCAN boasts a compact size and excellent portability. No matter in narrow spaces or under huge objects, SIMSCAN portable 3D scanner can conduct 3D measurements anywhere and anytime. When paired with wireless communication link AirGo Pro, it supports mobile 3D scanning and data viewing for truly flexible, reliable, and effective measurement experiences.

With its multifunctional buttons, users can switch between different modes at any time. Its single-handed operation allows flexible measuring and its ergonomic design makes it comfortable to use. Designed with an anti-slip housing and a strap, it is safe for users to scan in all directions freely.

Smooth 3D Experience

SIMSCAN can 3D scan objects with a rate up to 2.8 million measurement/s thanks to its sophisticated algorithm. It is designed to offer users a smooth and efficient 3D digitizing experience.

Automated 3D Measurement

It can be paired with Scantech’s automated 3D measurement system to achieve non-stop measurements. Automated high-batch measurement overcomes the limitation of traditional methods and it significantly improves efficiency for all stages of manufacturing.

Aesthetic Design

With ergonomic design, SIMSCAN fits perfectly in your palm, truly realizing a perfect fusion of aesthetics and practicality.

Detail, everywhere

Under parallel blue laser mode or single line deep hole mode, every detail is nowhere to hide, with an accuracy of 20 microns, a resolution of 25 microns, and capable of collecting 2 million points/second.

Toughest Ever

Revolutionary full metal shell provides solid protection, aerospace-grade materials ensure extraordinary durability.
