ASGCO recently released a point cloud laser scanner designed to enable fast, straightforward and accurate measurements of facades, complex structures, production and supply facilities, accident sites and large-volume components.

It is a Focus3D X 130 HDR 3-D scanner.

According to the company, this scanner delivers realistic and true-to-detail scan results, and it is more accurate than traditional methods because it examines thousands of points along the clearance plane, rather than just a few sample points.

ASGCO’s point cloud laser scanner offers a distance accuracy of up to ±2mm, 50 percent noise reduction and a range from 0.6 meters to 130 meters, the company says. The scanner boasts integrated scanning and imaging workflow. It also can capture more than 1 million points per second and can scan 360 degrees horizontally and vertically, the company adds.

ASGCO, headquartered in Allentown, Pennsylvania, is a manufacturer of proprietary bulk conveyor components and accessories that enhance material flow performance. Founded in 1971, the company has six major divisions that serve specific targets of the material handling industry.
