Modelmaker Mmdx Facilitates Handheld Scanning

May 24, 2010 - Nikon Metrology releases the ModelMaker MMDx series with digital ESP3 technology. MMDx now scans nearly all sample materials and surface finishes by automatically using the most optimal laser stripe settings. ModelMaker MMDx comes in different stripe widths and fits on Nikon Metrology and most other articulated arm brands.

Nikon Metrology, a new Nikon daughter company, markets the products of former Metris and the industrial inspection solutions of the Nikon Instruments division.

ModelMaker MMDx scanners feature digital camera technology and Enhanced Sensor Performance of the 3rd generation (ESP3) to scan all sample materials and surface finishes. Through ESP3 technology, MMDx digitizes surfaces with varying color or abrupt surface finish rInstruments division.transitions under any lighting conditions by dynamically adapting laser beam intensity point per point. ESP3 combined with a latest-generation reflection filter ensures that even highly reflective objects can be scanned without requiring spraying. ModelMaker MMDx laser scanners come in 50, 100 and 200mm laser stripe widths, to suit every inspection need. The scanner is compatible with Nikon Metrology arms and most leading 3rd party articulated arms, including Faro and Romer / CimCore.
