Large-scale 3D measurement system for parts up to 6500mm

The PolyScan XH is designed to measure part up to 6500mm, combining 2380 scanning units. It’s a versatile measurement system, well suited for automotive sheet metal components ranging from a door, to a full-length bodyside. System can have a hybrid scanning volume configuration: using only the center scanning units with smaller parts for a faster cycle time, or use all the scanning units for longer components.


Surround Scanning has been made possible by the tremendous amount of R&D Polyrix has put into software development since 2005. At the core of this process, the Polyscan Control Center (PCC) manages data acquisition from all scanning units, then generates the 3D models. Polyscan operation is made easy by the Automation Manager simple interface, or 3rd party software plug-ins (e.g. PolyWorks|Inspector Plug-in).

The PolyScan Control Center provides three levels of security: operator, inspector and administrator. For the operator, everything is as simple to operate as a barcode reader. The operator can inspect production using inspection layouts provided by an inspector. The inspector will have previously setup the inspection layout associated with any barcode. He is also responsible for the creation of those inspection layouts. Through PolyWorks® by InnovMetric, for instance, it is possible to setup any GD&T verification and perform Statistical Process Control (SPC) automatically on the operator generated data. The administrator is responsible for all scanner level settings and can assign security level to any user.


State of the art computing is assured by a set of set of twenty-one (21) computers using the latest generation CPUs and totalizing 704 GB of RAM. Computations are distributed across this architecture to speed it up. A gigabyte switch handles all the network communications.


The PolyScan XL is huge. Its mechanical structure is meant to stay stable in spite of its size. All the braces keep it rigid. The isolation pads on which it is mounted, block most of the vibrations. The casings allow aim to be adjusted for each optical unit.

No moving parts

By design, Surround 3D Scanners have no moving parts. Thus, the PolyScan is the solution of choice for Metrology or Automated inspection because it is:

  • - SIMPLE: No need to program inspection trajectory, unlike CMM and robot scanning solutions
  • - FAST: Data is quickly captured from every angle. No loss-time due to sensor movement.
  • - SAFE: There are no risk of collision with an operator. No costly enclosure and safety systems are needed.


The Polyscan offers high inspection throughput, which means higher return on investment. Simply put, the more parts get inspected, the more problems are avoided.

Process control

Since scanning is now made easy, process control is fast to obtain. Validate the repeatability of your process and be certain of your production.
