Today the industry is demanding higher quality and increased productivity in shorter lead-times. To meet the challenges of their business environment, companies are looking for ways to make production more efficient and cost-effective. Quality management has become increasingly important with the globalization of the suppliers’ network.

3D laser scanning  or « digitizing » is  a technology that captures the geometry of existing physical objects  through the use  of digitizing machines or laser scanners. KREON's scanning technology is based on triangulation. The laser triangulation principle is based on the computing of the distance to the object by means of a directional laser source and a video camera. The laser source creates  a laser line on the object which is filmed by one or two cameras.

The speed and accuracy of KREON 3D scanners make them the ideal tool for scanning of complex parts of small or large diameter.

The scanners enable a considerable gain of time in many phases of the manufacturing process . First of all, up the line, they are the link between the manual design and the digital model.

During the adjustment of both parts and tools they consistently apply the modifications trade.

Finally, in Production, they enable to check the conformity of the part according to the digital model.

It is in response to that  industry need for high quality, cost-effective  measurement solutions  that KREON was created more than a decade ago. KREON TECHNOLOGIES offers complete solutions for quality control,  reverse engineering, and inspection using its patented technology in high speed , non contact 3D laser scanning systems.

Considerably accelerating product development, KREON solutions promote innovation, by increasing competitiveness through the  lowering of your manufacturing costs. They help decrease engineering costs and improve the product’s time to market


Architectural Restoration

When original accents can no longer be located, all hope is not lost. A 3D Laser scan of the original object can be used to recreate templates and molds for many items including hand carved wooden posts, plaster appliqué, and metal hardware. Using CNC machining, replica components can be manufactured.
"When an original is too expensive, make a new antique."

Forensics and Deformation Analysis

For inspection of a failed part, a comparison can be made between a scanned model and the original CAD model or an other sample

Fabrication and Construction Inspection

Quality and integrity of manufacturing can be assured by comparing a production sample to both the original CAD file and a sample known to be within spec.

Manufacturing and Reverse Engineering

When there is an existing sample, scanning is the ideal basis for run of replacement parts. When replacement parts no longer exist, reverse engineering and short run manufacturing is often the only way to keep antique or legacy equipment in service.

Historical Archival

Exact replicas of original art and historical artifacts can be created from 3D Laser Scans, providing historians and enthusiasts access to rare and delicate specimens for study. Replicas could be placed out for museum visitors to touch and hold.

Virtual Product Visualization

Utilizing our state of the art facility, the Impact Studios design team will create a virtual computer model, and animate it to illustrate the actual product in use

Special Effects

Scan in a maquette or model for inclusion in your animation or video game. Scan in people which can be animated doing things that would otherwise be impossible.

NESTech provides development, integration, solutions and services in 3D digitizing technologies associated with laser scan. NESTech integrates the physical & digital world by providing world-class 3D laser scanning services for a variety of customers and industries. These services include:

  • Quality Control Inspection of production parts
  • First Article Inspection
  • Tool and Die Verification
  • Industrial Design: capture design studies into CAD database
  • 3D Measurement


Using our state of the art non contact laser scanning technology and powerful software, production part's scan date (point cloud or polygon data) and existing CAD model are superimposed to find deviations of the produced part from the originally designed CAD model. This method is extremely fast and accurate method to inspect complex parts, during tool qualification stage. We also provide this inspection analysis report along with all our reverse engineering projects to the customer to aid them to quickly validate 3D models created by reverse engineering process.


NESTech can provide  comprehensive analysis of feature locations and deviations from a CAD model on complex real world parts/tool/die.


We can measure and validate 3D free form surfaces of complex parts, Assembly positions, welding fixtures, checking gauges, structural parts, dies, jigs by way of 3D measurement capability of system and deviation reports given immediately.


Modern manufacturing requires rapid measurement and analysis that can not be done with conventional systems. NESTech solutions and services can provide up to 90% reduction in inspection time and a ten-fold increase in accuracy over conventional techniques.

How do you get from the cameras video array to 3D XYZ world?

Video image: adjustable to keep only suitable data for electronic process:
- Laser power (applies to line thickness),
- Integration time of cameras (applies to pixels height).
- Look Up Table (used as a threshold to eliminate background noise)

Kreon digitization : It is an electronic process, that extracts in real time a point for each video row. The result is a set of points in a system of coordinates (column, row), with subpixel resolution

Kreon camera calibration: Determines the relation between the cameras video array and a real world metric coordinate system (UV). Creating and applying the calibration formulas results in conversion of the sensors video output in to a row of points (sections) belonging to a 2D metric world.

Knowing the position of the scanner device (camera and laser) in relation to the object allows for locating the points of the laser line (section) in 3D space (XYZ). Sections can then be gathered over the entire surface of the object, constituting a points cloud, or more precisely a cloud of point sections.

Kreon's scanning technology is based on triangulation

The angle is selected so that there is sufficient relief and the hidden areas can be efficiently managed. At 0° the camera could not detect the relief, at 90° the relief would be optimum, but the slightest variation would prevent camera from detecting the laser trace.

The laser line belongs to a plane, and the video image is in 2D. Thanks to a "calibration" process, it is possible to translate from "row and column video image" information to "u,v" information that is in a system of 2D metric coordinates.

The dimensions of the captured area depend on geometrical and optical settings (zoom, focal length, etc...)`

How does it work? - STEP BY STEP EXPLAINED.

Source Object
The laser draws a red line on the part.
The video camera records are digitized in real time.
Resulting data is a 3D points set.
The system is moved all around the part. Result is well defined points.
Finally, gathered data from the surface delivers a 3D model.
