The Breuckmann GmbH is a growing and innovative company, concentrating for more than 15 years on the research, development and manufacturing of surface scanning systems, based on fringe projection technology. For about eight years, Breuckmann has successfully disseminated these techniques for technical application and cultural heritage projects. The experiences and product spectrum of Breuckmann includes surface scanning for a wide range of applications, from small objects such as teeth to in-vivo digitisation of the complete human body, and the development of software tools for the acquisition, visualisation and quantitative analysis of 3D-data. For more than 15 years, Breuckmann has allowed students to work on their diploma-thesis (bachelor, master) using the facilities and know-how at the Breuckmann labs. Research concentrated on the development of advanced data acquisition techniques, software development for the analysis of 3D surface data, improving sensor accuracy and reliability of 3D-data. Many of those students have been offered a permanent position after successfully finishing their thesis (Thomas Hermann, 1987; Erik Klaas, 1989; Horst Winterberg, 1989; Frank Halbauer, 1992; Harald Rein, 1992; Stefanie Thren, 2000)
