Creaform Releases the SILVER series HandySCAN 3D

Creaform has announced the latest addition to its HandySCAN 3D line-up offer, the SILVER series.

Developed and manufactured in North America, the SILVER Series captures highly accurate and repeatable 3D measurements of any complex surface in any location. It represents the best value for money on the market and is supported by a global team of engineers and technicians.

The SILVER series offers a versatile professional 3D scanner, with all the features that made the HandySCAN 3D scanners the reference in the industry:

  • Quality optics: Provides reliable and maximised scan quality with an accuracy of up to 0.030 mm (0.0015 in).
  • 7 lasers crosses: Can quickly capture the surfaces in the entire field of view with a scan area of 275 x 250 mm (10.8 x 9.8 in).
  • Versatility: One device for all shapes and sizes, it masters various objects regardless of the part size, complexity, material, or color.
  • Plug and play: A simple user interface and real-time visualisation offers an ease of use and a short learning curve, regardless of the user’s experience or expertise level.
  • On the go scanning: Portable, lightweight and quick to set up, it can be up and running in less than 2 minutes, either in-house or on site.
  • Available in 2 models: Customers can choose from two models based on their business needs -HandySCAN 307 at US $19,990 or the HandySCAN 700 at US $29,900.

“For the professionals who need to adapt quickly to their customers’ needs and provide better answers to their inquiries, a reliable 3D scanning solution is indispensable,” explains Simon Côté, Product Manager at Creaform.

“The possibilities presented by gathering such precise data can open doors to new projects and strengthen the partnerships with existing clients. It cannot be overstated how 3D scanning and 3D printing technologies have become vital for any small-to-medium sized company.”

3D Scanner Market To Experience Double Digit Growth Till 2022

3D Scanner Market To Experience Double Digit Growth Till 2022

In its first forecast of the 3D scanner market, International Data Corporation (IDC) projects that worldwide 3D scanner shipments will grow to more than 273 million units in 2022 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.0 percent over the 2018-2022 forecast period. Total market value is expected to reach USD 1.74 billion in 2022 with a five-year CAGR of 11.5 percent.

Since the development of 3D scanners, the market has been largely focused on a few industries and use cases. Oil refineries and related plants are one of the largest clients for these products on an industrial level and manufacturing, particularly the auto industry, has used 3D scanning as a means of determining quality control and inventory management. Als0 as prices have come down over the past ten years, the market for 3D scanners has begun to expand and starting with ocular and dental use cases, the medical field has been exploring the use of 3D scanners for a variety of applications.

“The fragmented and concentrated nature of the 3D scanning market kept the market from expanding in the past. Within the past decade, continued interest in various vertical industries and similar factors leading to the growth of the 3D printer market are starting to push the market toward more mainstream applications. Our forecast looks at the main influences that push this market forward, and what we expect will lead to future developments,” said Max Pepper, Research Analyst, Imaging, Printing, Document Solutions at IDC.

For the purposes of this forecast, a 3D scanner is a metrological device that can optically identify, analyse, collect, and display geometric shapes or three-dimensional environments within a digital environment using computer-aided modeling. Optical 3D scanners use a variety of technologies, including structured light (both “blue light” and “white light”), laser triangulation, time of flight, phase shift, stereoscopic, infrared laser, and photogrammetry. IDC’s definition does not include contact scanners.

The 3D scanner market can be segmented into two sub-markets for handheld and stationary configurations. Handheld 3D scanning devices have a handle and are meant to be physically moved around an object to scan while being held. Stationary 3D scanners are those devices that do not fit the definition of a “handheld” device and includes shoulder- and cart-mounted devices as well as scanners attached to robotic arms.

In 2017, stationary scanners represented 57 percent of worldwide 3D scanner shipments with the remaining 43 percent belonging to handheld scanners. By 2022, IDC expects shipments of handheld scanners will grow to 45 percent of the overall market. This is largely due to the growth in the <USD 5,000 price band where handheld units are more popular and improvements in handheld technology among professional and industrial-focused products. In terms of market value, higher-priced stationary 3D scanners are expected to maintain their 89 percent share of overall market value throughout the forecast.
