General-purpose measurements of size and form features with high performance tactile scanning.


Advanced tactile scanning for comprehensive GD&T analysis

GLOBAL Scan+ adds tactile scanning to the range of possible applications. With tactile scanning, a large number of surface points are captured within a short time, enabling highly accurate form and profile measurements on functional parts.

GLOBAL Scan+ combines tactile scanning capability with the flexibility of an automatic probe head. The scanning probe can be positioned at various spatial angles, making accessing more complex workpieces easy. An accompanying styli changer rack accelerates the inspection process by enabling fast changes of styli configurations within a measuring program without restricting the available measurement volume.


High accuracy measurement

Measurement of features with tolerances in a low micron range.


Measurement speed

High scanning speed and measuring throughput.


High density tactile scanning

High measuring point density for an accurate evaluation of form errors.


CAD based application software

CAD-based scan path creation, 3D simulated collision checks and probe path optimization's, real-time part-to-CAD comparison and GD&T analysis.
