Rent a 3D scanner & other measuring equipment

Contact us


No matter whether you want to measure a building, an industrial plant, a hall or even just a simple tool: We have a wide array of laser trackers, laser scanners, LaserTRACER, measuring arms and many other high-precision measuring instruments, which we can gladly rent to you.

Renting a modern 3D scanner, for example, can be more reasonable and more effective in terms of price than buying it. sigma3D offers you professional, calibrated measuring instruments, such as the FARO laser scanner Fokus3D S 150 for rent - and thus all the functions and advantages of modern measuring technology for every budget.

Renting a variety of measuring arms is also possible. Here we can offer you a wide range of measuring arm lengths, variants with 6 and 7 axes and variable measuring accuracies. Furthermore, you can upgrade the measuring arms with a line laser, the LaserLineProbe (LLP) from FARO, to carry out area-based measurements.

In combination with a laser tracker, which can also be rented, you will be able to record any given measurement volume. The measuring instruments are always up-to-date models from FARO and Leica. Thanks to our rental offers you will not be subject to the obligations and restrictions of a typical leasing contract and can access professional measurement technology hardware at excellent prices, quickly and easily!

The advantages for your company when you rent a 3D measuring device such as a 3D scanner are evident: For many scenarios, a single measurement or adjustment using 3D measurement technology is perfectly sufficient. Even for the case when you are planning the acquisition of hardware for longer-term use it is sensible to rent a measuring device like a 3D scanner first, in order to find out whether the integration into workflows works as planned and whether all connections and integrations work. In both cases the outright purchase of equipment is as expensive as it is inefficient.

Better: Rent the optimal 3D scanner for your requirements or rent the optimal laser measuring device and benefit from our all-inclusive, carefree service!
