ShapeGrabber 3D Laser Scanning systems deliver fast, accurate and automated 3D measurement. The ShapeGrabber is ideal for measuring complex shapes such as molded plastics, castings, stampings, and machined parts and that are time-consuming, costly, and difficult to measure. Using multiple motion axes, ShapeGrabber laser scanners eliminate the need for software alignment and registration and ensure fast, accurate results.

ShapeGrabber automated scanners are well suited for situations in which speed and ease of use are important. These systems scan parts in a wide variety of materials, colors, and finishes and excel in rapid prototyping, manufacturing, quality control, and reverse engineering applications.

All ShapeGrabber 3D Laser Scanning systems share the ability to produce detailed surface characterizations of complex parts, quickly, and accurately. They are all easily programmed for repetitive part measurements, with no need for software alignment and registration. All ShapeGrabber systems collect accurate, high density point data, and provide reports of results, including GD&T.

Multi-Sensor CMM


FlexPoint™ is the new generation of multisensor coordinate measuring machines from OGP®. FlexPoint offers a unique combination of sensors, and CAD based programming, to solve a wide variety of dimensional measurement problems.

FlexPoint systems are available in sizes from 7.7.6 to 12.30.10 and feature VersaFlex – the patented sensor array offering up to three simultaneously available sensors on an articulating head. Measure parts with trusted scanning probe, telecentric optics, and 1 μm accuracy TeleStar interferometric laser – without the downtime of exchanging sensors and constantly recalibrating.

Having all sensors available for immediate use eliminates the need for time consuming tool changes. CAD programmable articulation of the VersaFlex™ creates optimum positioning and alignment of all sensors.
