ZEISS DotScan is an outstanding option for capturing freeform surfaces and even for minute structures. Chromatic white light sensors are the method of choice, especially when styli or camera sensors reach their limits on sensitive, soft, reflective or low-contrast surfaces. By using ZEISS DotScan, strongly reflective surfaces, such as metal components in knee implants, can be scanned without any need to inject them with a contrast medium. This also makes it possible to distinguish transparent lacquered surfaces from other underlying metallic layers.
ZEISS DotScan is available in three sizes for three different measuring ranges: 10, 3 and 1 mm. The sensor can be exchanged fully automatically for other contact or optical sensors within a single CNC run. Thanks to the sensor's mode of operation, a wide variety of materials can be scanned from all sides without difficulty. In conjunction with a rotary table, even measuring jobs with 4-axis scanning can be performed.
