Exact Metrology, a comprehensive metrology service provider, released the Hexagon RS6 laser scanner, designed for high-speed and accurate scanning.

It scans up to 1.2 million points/sec with a scan rate of 300 Hz. The RS6 also has a wider laser stripe of 150 mm at mid-range and a visual guide that provides real-time feedback for stand-off distance.

Built using SHINE technology (Systematic High-Intelligence Noise Elimination), the RS6 laser scanner delivers full scanning performance even on challenging surfaces. Whether it’s a glossy black plastic automotive body part or a molded carbon-fiber component, this scanner scans without any reduction in quality or productivity. Furthermore, SHINE allows users to scan 99% of parts without touching the scanner exposure. With repeatable mounting (using the Absolute Arm 7 Axis), the scanner can be removed if necessary and replaced without need for calibration.

When compared to other scanners, the RS6 has 3x faster frame rate, 30% wider laser stripe and excellent scanning performance on difficult surfaces with SHINE. With the arm-mounted scanner, it is easier to measure due to less preparation, less set up, less settings and scans with full frame, with full line width, all the time.
