Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, a leading metrology and manufacturing solution specialist, announced the Leica Absolute Scanner LAS-XL, an ultra-large scale portable laser scanner. Designed for industries and applications where both speed of measurement and metrology-level accuracy are indispensable, the expanded measurement field and point acquisition rate of the LAS-XL means large parts and surfaces can be fully digitized in far less time than ever before.
Operating on the same flying-dot scanning technology as the Leica Absolute Scanner LAS, the LAS-XL has a scan-line width of up to 600 millimeters (24 in.) and a measurement stand-off distance of up to a full meter. The flexibility makes the LAS-XL suitable for mapping large blade surfaces as well as digitizing aircraft and rail carriage interiors. It is accurate to within just 150 microns.
“What we’re seeing with our customers is that there is a huge range of applications for which much improved speed of measurement is more critical than accuracy,” says Daniel Moser, Technical Product Director at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “The LAS-XL is our attempt to meet the needs of this part of the market that has until now been under-served by the metrology industry. Absolute Accuracy is a key part of our product philosophy, but sometimes really great accuracy done really quickly is the better solution.”
The LAS-XL is compatible with all Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 models and is available to order worldwide immediately.
