Functional principle

AICON's white light scanners work on the basis of the so-called miniaturized projection technique (MPT). This procedure is known as active triangulation. A white light scanner consists of various hardware and software components which are one or two digital cameras (measuring field and resolution depend on the respective application), a projection unit (comparable with a slide projector), plus a computer installed with a data acquisition and evaluation software.


Background information

Precise optical measurement technology for a broad user spectrum together with a versatile range of applications - this is the AICON SmartScan series.

In comparison with a high-end laser scanner, the systems of the white light scanner of the SmartScan series not only deliver a significantly higher level of data quality and resolution, but also offer much easier handling.
