The ZEISS T-SCAN hawk hand-held laser scanning system gathers measurement data in production environments, labs or at the workbench.

GOM, which makes measuring systems, has developed a portable hand-held laser scanning system to carry out 3D scanning of parts or tools.

According to the company, the T-SCAN hawk comes with pre-installed GOM Inspect Suite inspection software and features large-object photogrammetry, multiple laser sources and three scanning modes. It can digitize large and heavy objects more accurately, according to GOM. It comes with two laser sources, red and blue, which can scan various surface structures and materials. Users can also change the scanning mode while scanning. 

GOM says that the scanner is suitable for technology such as 3D printing, rapid prototyping and reverse engineering.
