How 3D scanning benefits roll-alignment services

Correcting an alignment is an exact process that requires precision tools and measurements. Performing a 3D scan is a great way to ensure that you’re getting just that with roll-alignment services. If you’ve never considered 3D scanning, our team at Spartan Scanning Solutions has created a guide with some benefits of implementing 3D scanning into roll-alignment services.

Precise measurements

Using lasers to scan an object requires the use of exact math and calibration to ensure that it’s done correctly. By using our scanning technology to perform 3D scans of your rollers, you can be confident that you’re getting precise measurements that make it easier to align rollers. You can use the measurements to ensure a perfect alignment with maximum efficiency and performance.

Get the whole picture

Industrial rollers can be massive. So big, in fact, that it can be difficult to see where exactly the problem lies. A 3D scan will make it easier to get the full picture of your roll, which ensures that you can pinpoint a problem based on the information returned from the scan. What’s more, a 3D scan creates an image that’s easily manipulated on a device so you can see all sides during a full inspection. You’ll find that it’s much easier to perform a perfect roll alignment and address individual problems that might have developed over time.

Accurate measurements

When calibrated correctly, lasers provide information with a minute margin of error. You can be confident that the 3D scan is returning information within a minuscule range of the actual roll, so you know measurements are done right the first time, and you won’t have to waste time and effort to measure a second or third time.


Laser scanning technology has been developed to be a one-person job that’s performed in a fraction of the time that it would take to measure by hand. While purchasing your own laser technology might be cost-prohibitive, outsourcing a company like ours makes it much more affordable. We’ll save you money with a quick and effective 3D laser scan that provides fast and accurate results.

Non-contact measuring

Laser scanning is a non-contact measuring technique that can provide accurate measurements as it never has to touch components that might be moved or distorted when touched on measuring. You can get precise measurements for even the smallest parts without the risk of damaging or breaking the fragile parts of a larger piece of equipment.

Flexible modeling

With a 3D scan of your roll, you can choose the final delivery of the model. Choose the elements necessary for roll alignment to ensure that you don’t have to work through excess measurements and models. Your final model will be delivered according to your individual specifications. We’ll provide you with a variety of options and let you choose what works best for your needs. If you prefer raw data instead of a 3D model, we can do that too. Simply let us know how you would like your data delivered, and we’ll make sure it gets to you how you prefer.
