The HandyPROBE portable coordinate measuring machine was designed to take reliable measurements on the shop-floor. Thanks to its dynamic referencing capability the HandyPROBE delivers metrology grade accuracy regardless of setup quality or experience level.
The HandyPROBE delivers accurate, high resolution results - regardless of the environment.
Advanced optical and laser technologies allow for a point and shoot user experience. Real-time visuals can be viewed onscreen to guide your process and ensure a complete scan.
The typical object can be scanned in less than 5 minutes. Scans capture a robust amount of data, and produce ready to use files immediately. These files can be imported into CAD without post processing.
Take the HandyPROBE anywhere, the system, tripod and accessories fit into a single carrying case. On location, the arm-free system offers the ultimate freedom of movement and versatility to measure parts of any size or geometry.
Achieve accuracy of 0.025mm with a traceable certificate, on parts from .7-20 ft in size (.2-6m.) Optical reflectors perform dynamic referencing to ensure accuracy is reliable and consistent, no matter the environment.
The HandyPROBE's user-friendly design doesn't require any rigid setup, and instead can be moved freely in large spaces. It's optical reflectors make alignments automatic, eliminating the need for realignment when performing repetitive measurements.

(1) HandyPROBE Next and HandyPROBE Next|Elite performance assessment (ISO 17025 accredited) is based on partial procedure per ISO 10360-12 standard: Probing size error (6.2) and Length error (6.4). Performance is assessed on traceable sphere and length artefacts.
(2) The volumetric accuracy of the system when using a MaxSHOT 3D cannot be superior to the default accuracy for a given model.
