Peel 3D Scanners
These are professional grade handheld 3D scanners with no
useless gadgets attached, just simple high quality 3D scanners
for large or small objects where budget is a priority. The two
variations Peel 1 and Peel 2 can scan items directly without the
need for preparation as they automatically recognise the shape
The new generation of handheld scanning, the HandySCAN 700 has
been optimised to meet the needs of product development and
engineering professionals who require the most reliable and cost
effective way to acquire 3D measurements of physical objects.
HandySCAN Black Elite
elite version offers accurate, reliable and high resolution 3D
measurements with accuracy of 0.025 mm (0.0009 in) and
volumetric accuracy of: 0.020 + 0.040 mm/m (0.0008 in + 0.0005
in/ft). It is a stand-alone device not requiring any tripod or
external tracking device to operate.
HandySCAN MetraScan 750 Elite
is 1.5x more accurate than previous HandySCAN models, it is also
12x faster with 7 laser crosses and 25% lighter. The MetraScan
750 Elite has the capability to scan any type of material,
including hard to scan materials with shiny and multicoloured
surfaces, including black.

Simply produce models in hours, not days with the FabPro 1000.
Compared to other 3D printing systems, the FabPro 1000 can
create higher-quality parts with precision and smooth finish at
up to three-times-faster high-throughput print speeds. How? This
piece of technology uses a projector to image each layer for
easy and precise printing, with the ability to build several
smaller parts on a single platform for increased productivity.
Projet CJP 460 Plus
Incorporating advanced 3-channel CMY full-color 3D printing and
integrated cleaning station, the ProJet CJP 460Plus operates
with safe build materials, active dust control and zero liquid
waste, making it an ideal office companion for a wide range of
applications. he ColorJet printing technology allows the fastest
print speeds, 5x–10x faster than all other technologies, to
deliver models in hours, not days. Its high throughput supports
an entire department with ease.
Figure 4 Standalone
Quick and easy material changeover allows for functional
prototyping and production applications diversity with the same
printer. Featuring a manual material feed, it is augmented with
separate post-processing units available for cleaning, drying
and curing. Achieve same-day functional prototyping and low
volume production with ultra-high speeds.
The Mark Two is a 3D printer for serious engineering and
manufacturing applications. This is the first 3D printer in the
world capable of printing composite materials with a heat
deflection temperature of 140°C. So in addition to being able to
reinforce nylon parts with continuous strands of carbon fibre,
Kevlar and regular fibreglass, you can now reinforce parts with
high-temperature materials like polycarbonate.
