3D Laser Scanners: Incredible Accuracy, Amazing Data Quality

Redmond, WA, September 10th, 2012 -- Basis Software Inc. and Automated Precision, Inc.  (API) announced entering an OEM and distribution agreement for 3D Laser Scanners. Under the agreement Basis Software, Inc. will supply API with OEM customized 3D Laser Scanner based on Surphaser 25HSX – a leader in accuracy and precision in medium range laser scanners. API will offer the OEM scanner throughout its global sales network outside of United States of America.  API will also offer scanning service through its service branch API Services globally, including United States of America.

Called the API Hemispherical Scanner or "Hemi-S," the new instrument will make its public debut at the IMTS Show opening Sept. 10 at the McCormick Center in Chicago. API OEM product is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2012.

"Surphaser 25HSX is a ground breaking product that uniquely combines the speed and range of phase-based scanners with accuracy which opens its use in many metrology applications. We are confident that our partnership with API will further expand our metrology market presence." said Peter Petrov, President and Co-Founder of Basis Software, Inc.

This collaboration gives API users another tool for measurement tasks, particularly those that require complex 3-D models. The Surphaser scanner is often used to reverse-engineer objects of mid-size range, including cars, planes, military vehicles, boats and buildings.

"API's competitive strength is its superior quality, which means that we rarely accept another manufacturer's products as up to our standards. But Surphaser's accuracy and ease of use make it a natural complement to API's suite of laser interferometer trackers and machine tool calibration products." said API Chief Operating Officer Joe Bioty.
