BOCHUM – After more than a year of pandemic uncertainty, the moment has finally arrived: The 65th International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians in Hanover will open its doors from the 15th to the 17th September for the world’s largest industry meeting of its kind. In Hall 6, Stand 105a, smart optics will be presenting its well-known 3D scanners for the field of audiology, as well as the latest version of the aural Scan scanning software. A piece of normality as well as seeing familiar faces again and getting to know new ones are a particularly pleasing prospect for the company. Another reason to look forward to the event: smart optics is celebrating a product’s anniversary, because the duo Scan is already ten years old. More than a decade of experience in the digitization of auditory canal impressions has turned smart optics into a popular manufacturer for hearing acoustics – and even more: a solid and versatile partner in times like these.

The 3D scanner manufacturer from Bochum has the right solution for every need, from industrial production to local hearing aid acousticians, with large to small budgets. Durability is a salient feature and contributes to the success of the duo Scan model, turning it into a safe investment that proves its worth as a perennial favourite. The traditional product line which includes duo Scan, mono Scan and dsProduction, is accompanied since 2019 by the modern, open free Stage scanner.

The aural Scan user software is available for all scanners, allowing a fast completion of the digitization of ear impressions. The modern and structured software is designed for our hectic everyday life. User instructions offer a safe guideline through all work steps. aural Scan is rounded off by useful features that facilitate the workflow and save valuable time, such as a comment function. The export function facilitates job communication, because finished scan projects are saved as a ZIP archive, sent by email or can also be uploaded to an FTP server. A configurable PDF document clearly summarizes the orders’ data. aural Scan also features an interface to the industry leader Noah.

Scans achieve a particularly high level of accuracy by means of a regular 3D calibration. A tactile-measured 3D calibration object can be purchased at the online shop for this function. After validation, aural Scan can optionally create a test report that documents the current accuracy of the scanner, which can serve as evidence for the internal quality management system.
