WENZEL ScanTec – Leading the way with Blue Laser Technology

Blue Laser Technology provides Mobile CNC 3D Scanning System with next generation performance –

“Blu-Scan” the new standard in portable scanning

Blue Laser Scanning


At the Euromold exhibition (1st to 4th December 2010 in Frankfurt, Germany) WENZEL Group presents the introduction of its Blu-Scan Sensors. At the forefront of this new technology, WENZEL subsidiary WENZEL ScanTec, has pioneered and implemented Blu-Scan technology into its industrial 3D laser scanning machines.


The new “Blu-Scan” blue laser scanning sensor has been implemented into Mobile Scan3D - a mobile CNC laser scanning solution that represents a productivity breakthrough for the reverse engineering sector and part inspection verification. Since the system offers full CNC automatic scanning, the accuracy of the acquired dataset is significantly enhanced over the same data acquired using portable arm and provides automatically structured and ordered data minimizing subsequent data “cleanup and processing time.


The new ”Blu-Scan” sensor projects a much finer line (50µm laser thickness) than the previous generation of red laser sensors. It has also a higher resolution and is much more tolerant to surface textures. The distinct advantages over red laser technology are (?) more power, constant laser line thickness through the measurement area and less speckle due its shorter wavelength which also provides much improved focus and a thinner projection line. To the end user all of the above means higher data collection rates, higher resolution data and more accurate processed images.


MobileScan3D can be used for numerous applications; an optional rotary table can be used to rotate the part and perform a complete scan pass, which provides all the scans in the same coordinate system. Since the whole system is fully CNC the results are extremely repeatable and not operator dependant, where competitive manual systems are not.  Different sensors are interchangeable and can be switched in a couple of minutes without the need to recalibrate the system.
