SG356: ShapeGrabber's Faster, More Accurate Scanhead

Our newest scanhead is delivering fast, accurate 3D scans of medium-sized parts.

In May, we introduced our newest scanhead, the SG356. Designed for our Ai810 3D scanner, this scanhead uses a shorter wavelength (530nm) GREEN laser as well as a new lens and imager. It's delivering:


  • Up to 10 times faster scanning speed than its predecessor, the SG502
  • Greater accuracy and tolerance to temperature changes
  • Variable field of view in addition to depth of field
  • Improved performance for scanning glossy plastic and reflective metal parts 
  • ...and more!
