3D Scanning Laser Modules
ProPhotonix produce a range of compact laser modules ideally suited to 3D Scanning applications for some of the fastest growing 3D Scanner
manufacturers in the world. These economical
laser modules are just 8mm in
diameter and are available in a range of red
wavelengths at output power levels up
Wavelength & Power
3D scanning typically uses a red laser. The specific wavelength will depend on the sensitivity of the camera being used. The power level of the lasers is extremely important as in this type of application adherence to laser safety classifications is crucial and the lasers must be eye-safe. With access to laser diodes from all major manufacturers, ProPhotonix is able to source the optimum diode for each application.
The laser line modules are available with a 58° or 88° fan angle to allow for the
line length and working distance required by your application. The modules
produce a thin laser line to deliver
the optimum image resolution. Custom optical configurations are also available.
ProPhotonix’ in-house manufacturing ensures that we can
produce laser modules to tight
specifications and our stringent
quality procedures ensure that you receive repeatable results every time. Repeatability of the fan angle of the laser and the resulting laser line length is important to guarantee consistent performance of the 3D scanner. If the fan angle of the laser is too small the scanner will not be able to scan the required sized object. Robustness, reliability and repeatability are key criteria when developing a laser for 3D scanning. Custom laser prototypes undergo significant product testing in the development phase and in manufacturing. ProPhotonix has put rigorous testing procedures in place to guarantee repeatability of key measurements.
