Product Highlights

Automated Data Collection

The L100 CMM scanner connects to a variety of CMM brands, converting them into versatile, multi-sensor solutions capable of quickly digitising complex parts of any shape or size.

Easy To Use

A built-in field-of-view projection clearly indicates to the user whether the scanner is optimally positioned. This facilitates scanner programming and scan path generation.

Extend the Measurement Reach

An integrated rotation adapter allows the L100 to rotate around its Autojoint axis, facilitating measurement of parts with vertically oriented features such as turbine blades.
