Probing and scanning without limits: the new "naviSCAN" system

The combination of a Metronor DUO portable CMM and a Breuckmann stereoSCAN white-light-scanning system offers previously unknown flexibility and accuracy to users of portable measurement equipment. Probing and scanning has never been so easy and allows sophisticated measurement and inspection tasks on the shop floor.

While the Metronor DUO system sets up a large working volume the stereoSCAN precisely and quickly scan areas up to one square meter per shot. Stitching several shots together works seamless and without any user interaction through the navigation target mounted to the back of the scanner. This navigation target allows complete freedom for any view alignment or positioning of the scanner. During the scan sequence the system even monitors and notices any movement of scanner or part, and thereby assures precise measurement and scans.

The naviSCAN system is the ideal solution for inspection and reverse engineering tasks on large components even under demanding industrial conditions. See the difference in quality, speed and robustness!


• Probing and scanning works seamlessly in the same coordinate system

• Large components

• No need to apply (and remove) targets or stickers

• Quick and straightforward workflow

• Easy to use and hence quick to learn

• Hidden points, that are not accessible through the scanner, can be measured with a touch probe

• Ideal combination for applications that require discrete point probing for hidden or difficult to access areas that is fully integrated with high density scan data

• System is completely portable, with heavy-duty transport cases

• Can be used in hostile shop floor environments

• System monitors vibrations and checks accuracy between scans in real time


• Inspection tasks on large components under shop floor conditions

• Reverse engineering

• Scanning models for Rapid Prototyping

• Any application that requires a medium to very large volume Portable CMM and high quality, high density scan data


Reference Customer: Wyman Gordon in Worcester, MA, USA is a major supplier of forgings to both military and commercial aerospace manufacturers. They are using the system for first-article as well as reverse engineering /shape verification of old tooling. There are several challenges to obtain highly accurate data in a hostile forging shop: this includes large components (up to 27 ft, 9 m long) and hot dies.
