InspecVision Planar 2D - 2D inspection, CAD engineering and reverse engineering in seconds

Planar 2D allows manufacturers to quickly verify product quality by performing 2D inspections, CAD comparisons and reverse engineering in seconds.

The system can be used for very quickly measuring or reverse engineering flat parts which have been manufactured on laser, plasma and water jet cutting systems as well as punched and some stamped parts. We have been supplying the Planar system to the sheet metal industry for over ten years during which time we have consulted with many major manufacturers to fully understand the requirements expected from our measuring system and integrating these into the Planar.

Opti-Scan 3D uses market leading white light scanning technology to scan formed parts. A White Light Scanner (WLS) is a device for measuring the physical geometrical characteristics of an object. Alternating patterns of white light are projected onto the object to be measured and a camera captures the images. Our innovative software can then analyse the data to output a point cloud of the surfaces and edges of the object. Any area of the part that can be seen by the camera can be measured. Each scan can contain up to 40 million edge measurements and 20 million surface measurements. The measuring speed is approximately 250,000 measurements per second!

Global Installations

There are Planar machines installed and operating in more than 30 countries worldwide and the list of countries is growing. Planar customers range from small job shops to multi billion dollar turnover companies covering almost every industry that uses sheet metal such as electronics & communication industries, automotive and aerospace.


No moving parts to wear or fail. Vibration and scratch proof operation. Available in a range of sizes and accuracies the Planar can be installed on the factory floor and is easy for shop floor staff to operate helping to cut expensive inspection bottlenecks. With addition of the OptiScan 3D the system offers unparalleled non-contact 3D inspection capacity.

Speed and Accuracy

For speed we cannot be beaten by any other competing system. Planar can take up to 40 million measurements in 0.1 seconds. This makes our system the fastest in the world for both inspection and reverse engineering of flat parts. We also have the largest range of available models and accuracies available.
