Nikon is most famous for their cameras and lenses. But, did you know that Nikon also designs and manufactures laser scanning solutions for digitizing complex parts? These scanners typically create 3D models that are used for dimensional quality control and reverse engineering.

With handheld laser scanning, users can easily understand the dimensional quality of complex products whether inside the metrology lab or on the shop floor. By combining the portability, accuracy and application flexibility of the MCAx articulated arm with the extreme performance of the new Nikon 3D scanner, users can achieve precise measurements with confidence in a multitude of situations.

Applications range from advanced inspection using geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) with color map comparisons to nominal CAD, fly-outs and sectional cut-through to reverse engineering. Or also to create high-definition scan data to generate polygon meshes for additive manufacturing. No matter what the application is, the ModelMaker H120 delivers on all fronts through its no-compromise design and Nikon Metrology's superior laser scanning development experience.

This saves money on prototype troubleshooting, accelerates product-to-market and provides complete data on the part which can be inspected immediately or archived for later in-depth analysis.

Join us for a webinar that explains how the Nikon ModelMaker H120 helps you to refine your prototyping and manufacturing processes.

This webinar will explain:

  • What is 3D laser scanning?
  • What are the benefits of 3D laser scanning ?
  • How the Nikon ModelMaker H120 can help you to advance your inspection process and get products faster-to-market
  • What applications are suited for portable laser scanning?
  • The different software integrations for laser scanning (Focus, Polyworks, etc.)

All topics will be illustrated with real-life examples and customer applications.
