AQC - Automatic Quality CheckThe Zephyr range of laser scanners from Kreon are without doubt the most versatile 3D single-line laser scanners available today. Equally at home on portable measuring arms and 3D CMM's, Zephyr scanners offer a range of scanning capabilities, depending on your exact needs in terms of speed and accuracy.

Retrofit Your CMM with a Laser Scanner

The Zephyr range of scanners is ideal for use on any make or model of CMM, providing high speed scanning instead of single point probing. By fully integrating the scanner with a Renishaw motorised probe head, the Zephyr offers all the measuring capability of a traditional touch probe with a far higher degree of measuring flexibility.

All Zephyr scanners also include a patented touch probe interface, enabling a Renishaw touch probe to be mounted directly into the scanner for simultaneous scanning and probing. This removes the need to invest in expensive probe changing hardware, and vastly reduces the time required to measure due to there being no need to exchange touch probe and scanner for different measuring tasks.

Our CMM Scanner Upgrade packs provide an all-inclusive solution to enable you to benefit from high speed scanning on a CMM, including laser scanner, CMM controller, high level measuring software, installation, training and after-sales support.

AQC - Automatic Quality Check

The AQC on all Zephyr scanners makes it possible to automatically control the quality of scan data. By constantly monitoring the quality of the signal strength of the reflected laser light, automatic compensation for the surface material's optical characteristics is performed throughout the scanning process, to ensure the optimum data quality is produced. This provides maximum surface flexibility to capture data on shiny parts, in their natural state and without any surface preparation.

Additional functions are also incorporated to evaluate and maintain the optimal scanning distance and to display a real-time preview of scan data. When used in conjunction with Metrolog X4 CMM software, the Metrologic CNC controller is able to fully utilise this feedback to dynamically control and optimise the offset between the scanner and the object's surface.


The Zephyr II is available in 2 specifications of scanner - the Zephyr II and the Zephyr II blue. Both scanners offer outstanding specifications and performance, with the standard Zephyr II focused on applications demanding lots of surface scanning, hence a wider laser line and faster scanning speed, and the Zephyr II blue focused on applications requiring even higher accuracy or primarily machined parts and turbine blades.
