OPTICAL 3D scanning


For car body inspection

ATOS 5X offers advanced 3D scanning technology for the inspection of car bodies. The powerful light source and high-speed technology enable fast and precise measurements of complete car bodies.

  • Extremely bright laser light source
  • Robust sensor design
  • High data quality

The automated 3D scanner ATOS 5X

Automated scanning of large measuring areas

Automated scanning of large measuring areas

With its powerful light source, ATOS 5X enables the use of large measuring volumes for maximum speed. Combined with the ATOS ScanBox series, ATOS 5X is a high-end scanning system for toolmaking, press and body shops.

High-speed technology

ATOS 5X uses the integrated Laser Light Compressor to generate ultra-bright light. This enables measuring areas of up to 1000 mm with very short exposure times. As a result, the ATOS 5X achieves acquisition times of 0.2 seconds.

Fast inspection with ZEISS data quality

  • Speed up your process

    The automated measurement of a complete car body both outside and inside typically takes 30 minutes with ATOS 5X – including the precise coverage of complex geometries. The system enables the highest possible throughput, with the main application areas in master jig and cubing, inspection of complete vehicles and quality control in the body shop.

  • Get the highest data quality

    ATOS 5X delivers full-field data for comprehensive process and quality control of hang-on parts, side panels and complete car bodies. The data quality generated by the sensor is particularly evident in the detail sharpness of the 3D models, allowing an advanced inspection of character lines, radii, trimmed edges and hole patterns.


Prior to the actual physical assembly, the measured parts can be virtually aligned. Information on gap and flush or functional dimensions can be evaluated at an early stage. Measuring results deriving from different departments or even from suppliers can be evaluated centrally. This way, a car body can be analyzed irrespectively of Meisterbock or cubing.
