Metis DRS 2000 DCS Large Format Surface Scanner is specifically designed for the most demanding industrial and decor applications, such as: wood flooring, laminate flooring, interior design, furniture design, ceramic tiles, textiles, stones, leather, wallpaper manufacturing, engraving of press plates & cylinders, digital printing, fine art reproduction, industrial reproduction, CAD, 3D scanning service providers, etc. Metis DRS 2000 DCS surface scanner is the largest model in the Metis DRS DCS family with a scanning format of up to 200 cm x 120 cm. This unique surface scanner for industry & decor integrates cutting-edge technologies, such as natural colour capturing, 3D data calculation, glossiness MAP, and much more.

Metis DRS 2000 DCS introduces exclusive features which have no equivalent in any other system available on the market, such as the innovative DC SynchroLight lighting system (Dynamically Controlled Synchronized Light), which allows dynamic control of the light in the scanning area. DC SynchroLight is a patent protected Metis technology which gives the ability to control and change dynamically, instantly and automatically the angle & intensity of the light emitted by the light sources in the scanning area, making it possible to optimize the result of digitization, depending on the type and nature of the originals.

In addition to the DC SynchroLight, Metis has also designed a proprietary software tool that allows post-scan light variations for real-time light changes and calculating 3D data from 2D colour data, without the need to re-scan the original; post-scan light changes allow to select the best light schematic in a matter of seconds and provide unique results unrivalled by any other system.

Some of the other benefits introduced by the Metis DRS 2000 DCS large format scanner are:

  • Digital camera integrated into the Metis DRS 2000 DCS system that is vertically motorized; makes it possible to achieve an optical resolution of 1000 ppi (and up to 2000 ppi x 1000 ppi)
  • High scanning speed and operativity; high grade precision / reliable mechanics & optics; perfect geometrical accuracy and high depth of field
  • Metis Scan Director Software specifically designed for Industrial, Fine Art & Decor applications
  • Special 3D calculating mode allowing the generation of a dense and accurate Depth MAP for 3D printing / engraving purposes
