Absolute Scanner AS1

Oct. 21, 2021
The Absolute Scanner AS1 from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence operates with both laser trackers and portable measuring arms.

The Absolute Scanner AS1 is a multi-use, automation-ready 3D scanning solution for today’s busy shop floor. The modular blue laser line scanner is the first in the industry to operate with both laser trackers and portable measuring arms. The AS1 integrates SHINE (Systematic High-Intelligence Noise Elimination) technology, so users can scan most any surface type at maximum speed and accuracy while SHINE’s advanced algorithms do the hard work in the background.


The AS1 is automation-ready with a data collection speed of 1.2 million points per second. This versatile data acquisition tool is ideal for any industry requiring quality 3D data within a 196.9 ft (60 m) volume. The scanning unit can be quickly mounted to the AT960 scanner using the Absolute Positioner AP21 and Hexagon’s kinematic joint – the same repeatable mounting system existing on Absolute Arm systems. The scanner unit can be swapped between tracker and arm without the need for time-consuming realignment, setup or calibration.
