Nikon ModelMaker MMDx

Handheld scanner for 3D inspection & reverse engineering.

The ModelMaker MMDx handheld laser scanners are ideally suited for portable 3D inspection and reverse engineering applications.

Their camera technology is a major leap forward in 3D laser scanning as they offer high frame rates and large stripe widths up to 200mm for ultra-productive scanning. MMDx incorporates Enhanced Sensor Performance (ESP3) to scan all sample materials and surface finishes without user intervention.

Nikon ModelMaker MMDx

Accurate non-contact measuring technology

The digital camera technology offers a measuring accuracy down to 7 microns and benefits from a true non-interpolated resolution of more than a thousand points per stripe, allowing freeform surfaces and features to be scanned accurately and efficiently.

Best-in-class productivity

Featuring high frame rates and laser stripes up to 200 mm, the digital MMDx range provides the ultimate in scanning productivity. The scanner’s digital cameras benefit from a true (non-interpolated) resolution of over 1.000 points per stripe, providing optimum resolution for scanning freeform surfaces and features efficiently.

Ideal for measuring soft and fragile parts

Measuring soft and fragile parts with tactile methods potentially induces inaccurate measurements or can mark the surface. As laser scanning technology is entirely non-contact, there is no risk of damage or inaccurate measurement due to part indentation.

Key Benefits

  • Faster and more accurate scanning saves money and time
  • Ergonomic, light and small scanner
  • Scans almost all industrial materials
  • Portable out-of-the box system
  • Easy and fast plug & play set-up
  • Designed for use in all shop floor conditions
  • Optimized for glossy or multi-material surfaces

Technical Specifications

1 Typical values are 30% better than published values.
2 Laser scanner Accuracy is determined by scanning a plane from various directions, each time using the entire scanner field of view. The result is the maximum 1ó deviation of the scan data to fitted plane features.

Laser scanning system accuracy: the laser scanning system accuracy indicates the performance of the laser scanner combined with a handheld localizer. The test is performed by scanning a highly accurate reference plate in 5 different orientations of the articulated arm and laser scanner. The 5 resulting point clouds are merged together into one point cloud and a best-fit plane is constructed through this point cloud. For each of the points in this point cloud, the distance is calculated to the best-fit plane. The result of the test is the 2 sigma value of all of the calculated deviations.
