Artec 3D launches 2µm accuracy metrology kit

Artec 3D, a global developer and manufacturer of professional 3D hardware and software, has unveiled the Artec metrology kit, a 3D optical coordinate measuring system for high-precision inspection – unlocking deformation analysis and enabling greater accuracy for measuring objects and areas of all sizes.

Available in two versions, Professional and Entry, Artec’s metrology kit offers an easy-to-use and versatile photogrammetry solution with metrology-grade precision and high-end accuracy for inspection and reverse engineering.

The kit can operate as a standalone optical measurement solution or as a referencing tool for improved 3D scanning performance over distance. The whole kit is portable, provides high-precision measurements in under 15 minutes, and also has the ability to capture objects in motion – ideal for both on-site and off-site projects.

Additionally, it is both DaaKS and VDI certified and provides point-based accuracy (RMS) up to 0.002mm + 0.005mm/m and length measurement accuracy up to 0.015mm + 0.015mm/m.

It includes a camera with a resolution of up to 30.3 megapixels and a 28mm wide-angle lens, measurement targets, adapters, scale bars, and a plugin, giving users the entire photogrammetry workflow right inside Artec Studio ( The kit is also compatible with leading inspection software solutions like Geomagic Control X, PolyWorks, and more.

“At Artec 3D, we are proud to provide innovative metrology solutions and continue to invest a lot of resources into evolving our products and our product line, delivering ever better solutions for our customer base,” says Artyom Yukhin, president and CEO of Artec 3D.

“We are confident that the metrology kit delivers a highly effective solution for inspection projects where high accuracy and minimal accumulated error are essential. We are excited to see how our users respond.”

The product is already being utilised in a range of industries such as automotive and aerospace and defence. An automotive example is where the kit analysed the position of welding studs on every fourth chassis in a major car manufacturing production line in Germany, and the results were then used to program a welding robot.

Additionally, as part of tests and research for autonomous driving, the kit helped determine the positions of sensors on a car body and correctly place them within the car’s coordinate system.

In aerospace and defence, UK, German, and Japanese defence organisations use the metrology kit for deformation analysis on the main and sub-panel systems of large satellite antennas tilted at various angles. Other applications include deformation analysis and flange inspection on offshore sites.
