Hexagon Handheld 3D Scanners

Hexagon introduces its first handheld 3D scanning devices, ATLASCAN Max and MARVELSCAN.


Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division (North Kingstown, RI) introduces new handheld 3D scanning technology that complements its broad range of manufacturing inspection devices with unprecedented capabilities for flexible measurement. The company’s first handheld 3D scanning devices, they enable engineers and manufacturing personnel to easily scan what they need in a wide range of environments inside and outside factory walls.

Two new handheld devices, the ATLASCAN Max and MARVELSCAN are ideal for measuring parts in a wide range of inspection environments where metrology has not traditionally been used, including applications in automotive, rail, industrial equipment and general manufacturing, as well as heritage and restoration projects outside of manufacturing. Both highly portable, the new 3D scanners are ideal for handheld and automated quality inspection applications, and for a wide range of reverse engineering needs.

The MARVELSCAN raises the bar for 3D scanning productivity higher with the unique built-in photogrammetry that delivers targetless scanning functionality. This is ideal for scanning large parts and repetitive parts without the time-consuming task of place targets on the part itself. This photogrammetry function also enhance scanning accuracy for large, delicate parts.

Designed for comfortable routine use, the user has complete freedom of movement to scan hard-to-reach places because neither cables or referencing hardware are required. The new handheld technology has capabilities for completely wireless measurement with battery-powered autonomy – a first in the metrology-grade handheld scanner market – putting the measurement system fully in the hands of the user without being tied to a PC or power source. When combined with their large measurement standoff distance makes the ATLASCAN Max and MARVELSCAN, this makes the devices ideal for integration within automated inspection processes mounted on industrial robots or cobots.
