White Paper: The Benefits of 8-Axis for 3D Scanning and Metrology

The world of manufacturing is rapidly advancing and key to that evolution is the development of technologies related to product design and quality control. 3D imaging and metrology technology—specifically, measuring and laser scanning arms—are becoming increasingly important to these processes.

Traditionally, 3D scanning arms have been limited to six or seven axes of movement. However, a recent development in 3D scanning arms has added new possibilities for product development and quality control: an 8th axis. The introduction of 8-axis 3D scanning enables new levels of flexibility, ease-of-use and speed for a variety of applications, including aerospace, automotive and even museum curation.

This white paper will explore 8-axis 3D scan arms, including:
  • Recent attempts to introduce an 8th axis into 3D scanning
  • The advantages of 8-axis 3D scanning
  • Applications of 8-axis 3D scanning
