This is very difficult to decide a right Leaser Scanner. A wide range of Laser scanners are available in market. But this is also difficult to find all laser scanners link. Here you find almost all market leaders. This Laser Scanners directory will simplify your laser scanner searching.
3D Digital (now own rights to RealScan 3D... which was previously owned by Intel, and before that Lockheed Martin). The Model 100 portable scanner has a USB interface for easy interfacing but no color texture. The Model 200 has color texture.
3D Scanner has two different products. ModelMaker is a hand-held line scanner that fits on the end of an articulated arm (such as Faro). It comes in several different sensor configurations. The user can choose where to spend more time gathering dense data. The weight of the head and the rigidness of the articulated arm can make scanning a bit tiring. Replica/Reversa is a complete Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) Machine.
3Shape 3D scanners for hearing aid and footwear applications
DataPixel has sensors for CMMs, robot based inspection, and manufacturing in-line inspection.
Axila G-scan is an integrated articulated arm and laser line scanner.

C-Map Systems LazrLyne projects a bright red vertical stripe into the video camera field of view. This allows an operator to measure areas, distances, and angles on the screen. The device is typically used for remote controlled crawlers, undersea ROV's, borescopes, and video microscopes.
Cyberware pioneered laser and video-based scanning technology. Their head and body scanners have been heavily used in the movie industry. The have scanners to address a full range of applications and they build custom scanners for special applications. The scanners color texture inaddition to geometry data.
DCS incubator project uses projection of multiple laser lines to create 3D profiles.
Diff Scan handheld 3D scanner uses a laser, camera, and diffraction to obtain range information
Digibotics has several different size models that use a single laser dot to scan an entire object. The systems automatically scan an entire object in an intelligent fashion. Because of the order it scans the object, the point cloud is very easy to convert to a NURB model usings tools like Surfacer. The scanning is some what slow, but accurate.
Hamar laser alignment systems
Hymarc Hyscan 45C laser digitizer is designed to fit to any Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) Machine, or other translation device.
Industrial Technology Research Institute has a 4-axis scanner, a portable 3D scanner, and a body scanner.
4DI (bought by Brooks Automation) system projects multiple laser lines to scan an object. It has two video cameras to calculate the 3D points and one camera to keep track of the multiple lines.
INO has a line of high speed 3D laser profiling sensors
IVP high speed 3D machine vision sensor calculates range information directly in the camera (10,000 profiles / sec). Combined with the Ranger software, it makes creating 3D profiling applications easy.
Kreon3D has two different models. The laser line is projected from the center of the sensor. Two cameras are used on either side of the line projector. This allows data capture even if one of the cameras is obscured.
Laser Design makes both portable and CMM based scanners for large and small applications.
LMI Technologies Inc. has single point, multi-point, single-line and multi-line laser sensors
Mensi offers two different models, one for long distances (2.5 - 25 Meters), and one for shorter distances (0.8 - 10 meters).
Metris has several CMM non-contact scanners.
Metron Systems MSG2 3D Scanning System is for reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, first article inspection, quality and process control or simply scanning services
Konica Minolta Vivid (USA) (Europe) (Japan) has three models (Vivid 330, 700, 900) to provide different accuracies and working volumes. These systems operate like a conventional camera and are portable, fast, and reliable. The systems product color texture and geometry data.
Nagoya Institute of Technology Handy 3-D Cam
Nextec has the Wiz laser point probe that can be mounted on a CMM or they have the Hawk integrated scanning system
New Features Measurement sells the M2D line of laser line scanner
NextEngine Desktop 3D Scanner uses multi-stripe laser triangulation and sells for around $2500.
OGIScanner laser line scanner for measuring rough diamonds for use in diamond planning and cutting.
Origin Technology captures a two-dimensional digital profile of a surface.
Perceptron provides laser line scanner and software for integrating with articulated arms
Polhemus has come out with a new model of the FastScan handheld laser scanner. The FastScan Cobra is a single camera laser line scanner. It is much lighter and easier to handle than the original FastScan. The user "paints" the object of interest. The point cloud is displayed on the screen as the scan is being done. It uses a built-in magnetic tracker to obtain the position and orientation of the scanner. This puts the scanned points in the same coordinate system. The overlapping scans are processed into a single surface model. Optional software provides automatic hole filling and generates water tight meshes. The list price is around $20K and the accuracy is around 0.5mm. This product is not suited for working around metal because of the tracker. The scanner and FastRBF software are developed by Applied Research Associates NZ Ltd. and FarField Technology
Roland Model LPX-250 Laser Scanner is a $10K laser dot scanner that has rotation and linear stages. The operating volume is 10" diameter, 16" height. The scanning resolution can be as small as 0.008". The unit is very nicely package, but large complex parts can take quite a bit of time to scan.
Scantech produces 3D laser scanners and CAD/CAM for efficient and fast copy milling. They have a portable scanner and stationary 3D laser scanners for mounting on any CNC-controlled milling machine or CNC-turning lathe.
