Whole Body Color 3D Scanner (Model WBX) FAQ

Q: What is it?
A: It is a Cyberware 3D Whole Body WBX Scanning System that extracts uniform sizing measurements quickly, consistently and accurately for the rapid delivery of Marine uniforms.
Q: How does it work?
A: The scanner captures a very accurate 3D map of the scan subject. Software quickly analyzes this 3D map, calculating the necessary body measurements to select correct uniform items.
Q: How many people can be scanned per hour?
A: The average is 81 but the scanner is capable of up to 110 per hour.
Q: How big is it?
A: The scanner which is fully enclosed has compact dimensions of 261 cm 235 cm 288 cm (8.6' 7.7' 9.43').
Q: How reliable is it?
A: One of our customers has scanned more than 30,000 subjects in two years. Another customer has performed over 60,000 scans since the scanner was installed at their site.
Q: How does it save money?
A: Better control of inventory: less inventory means less money tied up in unnecessary items. More consistent and accurate than hand measurements: quality fit achieved, time saved, and simplified issue process. Database reference resource: new uniform items can be designed to fit current population with less waste manufacturing the wrong sizes.
Q: How much training is required to operate the scanner?
A: A simplified operator interface allows non-technical personnel to operate the system with minimum training time.
Q: Is there any danger to your eyes?
A: No, the technology involved is similar to a supermarket bar code reader.
Q: What else can it be used for?
A: Population studies, statistical surveys, link to inventory control, longitudinal studies and virtual reality simulations.
Q: What is a longitudinal study?
A: A study involving the repeated observation or examination of a set of subjects over time. With a better understanding of how bodies change as they undergo training or age, manufacturers will be able to design better uniform items and protective gear.
