The new, hand-held laser scanner T-SCAN CS sets new standards with exceptional performance, ease-of-use and outstanding value-for-money.

Fast, intuitive and highly precise 3D scanning has now taken on a new dimension in coordinate measurement technology with the hand-held laser scanner T-SCAN CS.

The revolutionary and modular all-in-one concept, includes perfectly matched components (tracking camera, hand-held scanner and touch probe), thereby offering highest flexibility for a large variety of applications.


The design of the T-SCAN CS laser scanner has been ergonomically tailored to the operator´s needs, allowing a fatigue-free and intuitive scanning process. With its extremely light and well-distributed weight, the compact unit is ideally suited for data capturing even in most difficult to reach areas. The innovative technology and futuristic design of the scanner perfectly match each other for maximum ease of operation.


Reputed as a longstanding innovator in optical 3D metrology, ZEISS Optotechnik has again set new standards with the T-SCAN CS. The new laser scanner generation is convincing with its user-oriented design and outstanding technical features, e.g., an exceptionally high dynamic range for data acquisition on various object surfaces, and a hitherto unseen data rate. Thus, the user benefits from a unique scanning speed and highly precise measurement results.
