The new Leica Absolute Scanner LAS-XL is a handheld laser scanner designed to meet the needs of emerging 3D scanning applications for which higher productivity is the priority. Working in conjunction with the Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 range of high-end laser trackers, the LAS-XL opens the door to previously infeasible large-scale 3D digitisation tasks.
In a world of CAE and precision manufacturing, detailed digital modelling of components and pieces is more and more in demand. For parts that are larger and less feature-dense, traditional laser scanning methods present a massive productivity challenge to this requirement, with full digitisation and CAD modelling often becoming an unnecessarily time-consuming process.
The LAS-XL rethinks portable laser scanning by significantly increasing available 3D scanning area. A scan line of up to 600 millimetres wide delivers considerable productivity improvements, with scanning process times now up to three times faster. Hidden-feature access is transformed by an up to 1000 millimetre stand-off, making digitising deep cavity features easier than ever before while also improving access to difficult to reach measurement surfaces without repositioning of the laser tracker. These improvements are achieved while retaining metrological accuracy to within just 150 microns, an accuracy level ideal for less complex surfaces and pieces.
The LAS-XL also delivers all the well-established features familiar to the Leica Absolute Scanner range, from the revolutionary flying dot scanning concept and automatic exposure control to automatic scanner recognition and simple scan profile selection.
Large-scale, high-productivity, laser scanning and three-dimensional digitisation has never before been achievable within an easy-to-use package. It is now with the Leica Absolute Scanner LAS-XL.
