InspecVision Opti-Scan 3D

Bridging the gap between man and machine with intuitive, high-powered 3D inspection capabilities.

InspecVision offers the world’s first 3D inspection system that can measure surfaces and edges in 3D. Opti-Scan 3D uses a high-speed, high-resolution industrial camera and an LED DLP projector to scan the surfaces of an object.

Patterns of light are beamed from the projector onto the part; these patterns are recorded by the camera and used to create surface measurements.


A back-light table can be used to capture the silhouette of the part. This silhouette image is then converted into 3D edge measurements using our patented Planar Edge 3DTM technology.

3D edges are essential when measuring sheet metal parts as the critical features, such as hole size and position, are defined by the part’s edges, not its surfaces. Competing 3D scanners can acquire measurements of surfaces but are notoriously bad at acquiring measurements of edges.

The Opti-Scan is the only system in the world that can accurately measure surfaces and edges in 3D.


InspecVision achieves high levels of automation by adding a rotational table and tilting mechanism. This arrangement has been carefully chosen to create a viewing hemisphere that allows scans to be acquired from all visible surfaces of the component.

The rotational table has a ring of reference markers which locate the table relative to the scanner. This removes the need for high-precision, expensive, delicate, moving parts which would need to be recalibrated and maintained.

The result is an unprecedented level of accuracy and automation. The system can inspect most 3D parts by simply placing the part on the table and scanning a bar code, or clicking a button.


The Opti-Scan can also be used as a portable 3D scanner by placing the scanning head on a tripod.

Large objects can be measured by attaching repositioning markers to the surface of the part or to a measuring bench or area. These markers are then used to automatically stitch the scans together. In this configuration, almost any size object can be measured.

The system is also available as a retrofit to our Planar 2D machines. Furthermore, our Opti-Probe device can be used by the Opti-Scan to probe hidden features.

All of our Opti-Scan systems use at least 18MP cameras; this resolution is several times larger than the nearest competing product, which typically use 5MP or even 1MP cameras. All Opti-Scan 3D units capture object texture and geometry; color cameras are available on request.
