Optical Scanning Systems


QFP offers a wide range of portable 3D scanning systems characterized by high scanning speed and accuracy. Our contactless 3D scanners are the best solution for 3D digitization of physical models, quality control and reverse engineering. All models of the 3D scanning systems are portable, easy to use and characterized by exceptional performance.

How does structured light scanning work?

Structured light scanning systems are equipped with tracking cameras that project a structured light pattern onto an object, these lines are deformed and the cameras acquire the deformation and therefore the profile of the object.

Structured light scanning

The resulting STL file can be implemented in further processes, such as Rapid Prototyping, Quality Control or 3D printing.

The sensors of the optical 3D scanners are also equipped with adaptive projection, which allows you to adjust the amount of light projected on the object. This helps the acquisition of objects with non-collaborative or reflective surfaces.

The real advantage of optical 3D systems is the possibility to acquire a large number of points (hundreds of thousands or even millions of points) even on very large measurement volumes, guaranteeing an extremely high and detailed image resolution.
