Press Release: Fast, Intuitive, and Precise 3D Scanning Solution from Steinbichler Added to PADT’s Portfolio

steinbichler-PADT-multiproduct-1Yes. Another press release from PADT announcing a new partner.  The truth is we have the advantage of having worked with some great companies in 2014 and we are now fortunate enough to be able to add several of the great products we use in-house to our product offering. It all kind of happened at once.  Don't worry, we are almost done… only one or two more surprises out there.

At the beginning of the year we mentioned that we were offering full professional optical scanning. That service was based on using a Steinbichler blue light scanner. And as is usually with a tool we really like, we quickly negotiated an agreement with that company to represent their products. They offer the COMET line of blue light scanners and the T-SCAN line of laser scanners. There is of course a nice software package, called colin3D, that serves as a way to interact with the devices and get the data into a useful form. Both technologies offer high-precision at a reasonable price, something that not only PADT, but many of our customers were looking for.  

Please find the official press release below or as a PDF file.  You can also learn more about the products on our website here. We hope to schedule some webinars on this tool, and publish some blog articles, in the coming months. But the best way to try out this technology is to have us scan a part for you.

Press Release:

Industry leading 3D Scanning systems are now available through PADT with the addition of both Blue Light and Laser sensors from Steinbichler.  These solutions round out PADT’s offering for complete reverse engineering and inspection, providing greater accuracy and the scanning of very small to very large objects. 

Phoenix Analysis & Design Technologies, Inc. (PADT), the Southwest’s largest provider of simulation, product development, and 3D Printing services and products, is pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached with Steinbichler Vision Systems, Inc. for PADT to become a distributor of Steinbichler’s optical scanning solutions in the Southwestern United States. These highly precise and easy-to-use devices offer PADT’s customers a professional solution for their inspection, quality, and reverse engineering needs.

The COMET line of blue light scanners combine high-end technology, ergonomics, and compact design to offer optimum flexibility and precision for challenging scanning tasks. The product family includes multiple options for resolution and lenses.  The top-of-the-line COMET 6 boasts a 16 megapixel camera, adaptive projection 3D ILC technology, and six different camera lens options. At the same time, the entry level COMET L3D provides outstanding 3D data acquisition and accuracy at an affordable price. 

Coordinate measurement technology can be taken to a new level with the T-SCAN line of devices that couples an ergonomic and lightweight handheld laser scanner with a high precision tracking camera.  A touch probe can also be added for precise location measurement.  The result is a flexible system that allows accurate part measurement of everything from fine surface features to automobiles size objects.

“We have been using a Steinbichler system for our service work with great success” commented Rey Chu, a co-owner of PADT, “and it became obvious that this was the type of equipment, and the type of company, that would be a great match for our customers who needed professional high resolution non-contact 3D scanning and measuring capability.”

PADT is offering these systems with Steinbichler’s colin3D software and geometry tools from Geomagic and ANSYS SpaceClaim. This combination of hardware and software meets the full spectrum of needs encountered by customers to capture, clean, compare, and use geometry from point clouds to usable 3D parametric solid models.
