 Surphaser - 3D Scanner for quality control and reverse engineering


The Surphaser measures the 3D geometry of objects. Due to its unsurpassed precision the Surphaser is perfectly suited for industrial applications like Quality Control and Reverse Engineering.
The Surphaser scans 360° of its surrounding or user defined areas. A few scans are sufficient for e.g. the complete digitisation of a car body. The scans are referred automatically to a common coordinate system.


  • Unsurpassed precision, data quality and scan speed

  • Very low measurement noise - sub millimeter for all models.

  • Up to 1,2 Millions data points per second

  • Measurement ranges from 0,2m to 250m

  • Digitisation of nearly all surfaces without preparation

  • Can measure in deep cavities and acquire extreme geometries

  • Surface brightness and color information (option) is measured for every point

  • Robust Dust and water protected housing for the usage in industrial environment or outdoors

  • Lightweight and portable - Fits in cabin luggage (aircraft)

  • Fully automatic referencing of multiple scans (application report)

Advantages of the Surphasers against

Triangulation systems (fringe projection, mobile scanner, photogrammetry)

  • Large working range

  • No shadowing due to triangulation

  • No surpface preparation necessary

  • Large objects can be scanned very quickly

  • Measurement of complex geometries and in deep cavities.


Advantage of the Surphasers against

other terrestric laser scanner
  • Precision optimised

  • Digitisation of areas

  • High scan speed

  • Very low measurement noise --> No addition work for data cleaning

PolyWorks® is the complete solution for the post processing and analysis of 3 dimensional data. As universal software platform Polyworks supports many optical and tactile digitisation systems in the field of coordinate measurement technique. Beside single point measurements Polyworks digitizes, analyzes, edits and compares whole surfaces. The applications fields are unlimited in design, quality control and landcape surveying.
Available are software modules for Quality control and reverse engineering.

Polyworks is developped since more than 15 years by the Canadian company InnovMetric Software Inc.
Duwe-3d AG is the European partner and exclusive representation of InnovMetric software Inc. in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and our partner in all questions concrning the software PolyWorks: Sales, training and support.

RealWorks Survey, Leica Cyclone, Geomagic, etc. The Surphaser scan data are imported as PTX or in other file formats.
