About Laser Scanning

We aren’t afraid to challenge the norm and push the boundaries of what can be conventionally achieved.

Our Facilities

We have been the UK’s leading 3D laser scanning and reverse engineering company since 2016 and the expertise of our engineers dates back several years further. We are the UK specialists, operating from a 2200sq.ft. premises on the Thorncliffe Business Park Estate in Sheffield, just off Junction 35A of the M1.

Here at Laser Scanning, our 3D measurement and reverse engineering facilities are the most technologically advanced and accurate available in the industry today. The technology at our fingertips, combined with our vast knowledge of high precision tooling and product development, is what sets us apart and makes us the best at what we do.

We understand the importance of accuracy when it comes to product design, manufacture and testing. We’re at the forefront of the industry and our advanced facilities reflect this, ranging from handheld CMM inspection devices to portable laser scanning equipment that brings the state-of-the-art technology to you. From a human hair to a full-size car, we have the 3D laser scanning facilities to complete projects of every shape and size.

Our partnerships with Nikon Metrology and 3D Systems ensure our technology is unbeatable and our experience means we can deliver solutions in record time and with uncompromising accuracy. To put it simply, nobody else knows inspection and reverse engineering quite like Laser Scanning.

How we can help you

Laser Scanning are industry leaders for a reason and our specialist team of engineers have spent years gathering experience that makes them the most knowledgeable in the UK. Using this knowledge and our close partnerships with Nikon Metrology and 3D Systems, we can deliver services and products to help fulfil your inspection and engineering needs. We can streamline your quality inspection processes, enable in-depth fault finding and reporting without the need for long downtime in manufacturing flows, recreate parts and create prototypes with incredible accuracy and much more.

Our experience is extensive and varied; over the years we have worked to provide highly-accurate, state-of-the-art quality inspection and reverse engineering processes for applications in aerospace, military, marine, rail, aerospace, automotive, medical, archaeological and educational industries, to name but a few. No project is too large or too small; with the world’s most advanced 3D scanning, inspection and design hardware and software at our fingertips, the sky is the limit and your project is in safe hands.

Looking to expand your capabilities in-house?

Let Laser Scanning help with that too. We can provide software and hardware from Nikon Metrology and 3D Systems, along with the training and support to ensure you reap the rewards.

Nikon Metrology

The Nikon Metrology range of metrology solutions represents the ultimate in contact and non-contact measurement technology. Our partnership with the industry leaders means we can offer our clients the broadest range of metrology solution capabilities for every application, from the tiniest microchip to the largest aircraft.

At Laser Scanning we have a range of Nikon Metrology measuring machines available, each delivering highly repeatable and precise scanning and inspection. Amongst our portfolio of Nikon Metrology equipment are the Nikon LK-V 8.7.6 and Nikon LK-V 20.12.10, portable handheld coordinate measuring machines with the ability to perform dimensional, positional and surface measurement in a single system.

Our extensive facilities also feature various next-generations LC and XC laser scanners offering full surface and feature measurement. These include the Nikon Metrology XC65Dx, the Nikon Metrology LC15DX – considered a viable alternative to a tactile probe – and the Nikon Metrology L100, capable of ultra-fast and accurate data collection even on complex surfaces.

Finally, we have the Nikon Metrology ModelMaker MMDx range of handheld laser scanners. Ideally suited to portable 3D inspection and reverse engineering applications, the Nikon Metrology MMDx50, Nikon Metrology MMDx100 and Nikon Metrology MMDx200 can bring ground-breaking camera technology to your design and production project, whether at our Sheffield premises or at your location.
