Optical Photogrammetry System


Mastering measuring tasks photogrammetrically

TRITOP captures three-dimensional coordinates of individual measuring points on objects and components. A digital measuring camera is used to take high-resolution images in a short time. From this, the integrated software automatically creates 3D point clouds for further inspection and analysis. As a mobile system, TRITOP is suitable for measuring tasks in 3D coordinate measuring technology and 3D testing.

  • Easy to Use
  • Very high accuracy even for large objects
  • Independent of location and freely movable

3D coordinates for efficient inspection

As a portable system, TRITOP measures the 3D coordinates of objects quickly and precisely. The integrated software uses this data for metrological analyses, including inspection and the display of displacements and deformations. The visualization of the results speeds up the evaluation.

Indoor to offshore

Independent of ambient conditions

TRITOP is specially designed for harsh measuring environments and captures precise 3D coordinates in significantly reduced measuring time, even under demanding environmental conditions: directly in production, in a climate chamber or offshore. The system delivers precise measuring results even under difficult lighting conditions. With minimal hardware requirements, this hand-held, wireless solution offers complete mobility regardless of location.

Non-contact measurement

High ease of use

TRITOP allows for non-contact acquisition of 3D coordinates. The system really comes into its own in confined spaces and areas that are difficult to access. Fragile objects and sensitive surfaces can also be measured. TRITOP thus replaces conventional measuring methods, such as tape measures and string lines, as well as complex displacement measuring systems or LVDTs.

  • Measuring system comes to the measuring object
  • Measuring system comes to the measuring object

All object sizes

Measuring system comes to the measuring object

Especially when inspecting large objects such as ships or wind turbines, TRITOP brings the “measuring system comes to the measuring object” principle into best practice. The flexible system is at its best with parts of any size and almost any material.

Powerful ZEISS INSPECT software

Effective tool for analysis

Powerful ZEISS INSPECT software

TRITOP comes with the powerful ZEISS INSPECT software. It guides the user through the entire measurement and evaluation process in an uncomplicated and reliable manner. The analysis tool enables the visualization of measuring results, a wide range of analyses and includes comprehensive reporting functions.

TRITOP as extension for ATOS

Unbeatable team

TRITOP as extension for ATOS

For the inspection of particularly large and often complex components, TRITOP starts by creating reference point clouds. The ATOS optical 3D scanner then uses these reference points to automatically transform its individual scans and thus achieves the overall accuracy of the photogrammetric measurement over the entire measurement area.

Measuring by taking photos

In photogrammetric measurement with TRITOP, the object coordinates are recorded using a digital measuring camera. TRITOP first photographs the object to be measured from different angles, then the software automatically calculates the 3D coordinates using the bundle adjustment of all the 2D images taken.

Quickly overcome challenges in any location

  • Static deformation analysis

    Static deformation analysis

    TRITOP determines displacements and deformations in climate chamber tests, environmental simulations, load and aging tests and analyzes gap and flush changes as well as stiffness.

  • Wind turbines

    Wind turbines

    Wind turbines are often not assembled until they reach their destination. TRITOP provides accurate 3D coordinates of mounting bolts and mounting surfaces in the demanding offshore measurement environment.

  • Shipbuilding


    TRITOP reduces the time ships spend in dry dock from months to days. The measuring data helps to inspect ship hulls and reconstruct spare parts.

  • Train wagon construction

    Train wagon construction

    With a wide range of options for analyzing flatness, parallelism and squareness, TRITOP speeds up the measurement and inspection process.
