New Scanhead Launched 

The SG46 is our newest, most accurate scanhead

ShapeGrabber has just announced the availability of its newest, most accurate 3D scanhead: the SG46.

With the SG46, customers will be able to achieve these improvements:

• Greater accuracy and tolerance to temperature changes

• Up to 10 times faster scanning speed than its predecessor, the SG42

• Variable field of view in addition to depth of field

• Larger dynamic sensing range to scan a wider range of part types and surface finishes

• Positive lock mounting mechanism for ease of installation and switching with the SG156 scanhead as well as greater precision

• Backwards-compatible with most existing ShapeGrabber scanners

Ideal for Smaller Parts

The SG46 is ideally suited for smaller parts that require the highest resolution and best accuracy. Contact ShapeGrabber today to discuss your specific upgrade options, or visit our SG46 web page to learn more.
