Introducing the new satellite mode and perfect distance control

If users like to go big, the ZEISS T-SCAN hawk 2 is also the right tool for them. It’s the first portable laser scanner with the new satellite mode, allowing users to scan objects up to multiple meters. There is no need for the classical built-in photogrammetry with coded markers and no compromise on accuracy. Another highlight is a red laser marker projected onto the components. This visual aid helps users to keep the perfect working distance while capturing data.

An easy switch between different tasks

Its advanced technology allows ZEISS T-SCAN hawk 2 to deliver high-precision data in any situation and at any moment. Operating with a seamless adjustment for resolution and field of view, it does the job, even in confined spaces or hard-to-reach areas. The same applies to dark or shiny surfaces: ZEISS T-SCAN hawk 2 is strong on a wide range of materials and surfaces, delivering 3D measurement data with the highest precision.

Whatever the job, wherever the job

ZEISS T-SCAN hawk 2 is ready for industries like automotive, shipping and railway, aerospace or the energy sector. It is also great for mold and machine manufacturing, for example. Indoors or outdoors, the new 3D laser scanner travels in just one case, keeping everything at hand. Moreover, the case contains additional tools like a hyperscale for fast re-calibration or a handy power delivery hub. So, whatever the task, wherever the job: Take it. Make it.
