The Surveyor 1200 Series includes three models with an x-axis range of up to 6 ft while maintaining the same y and z travels. With the increased x-axis, long parts can be affixed to the table and scanned completely without having to be repositioned to get data from both ends. Models range in size from the Surveyor 1224 with 24 inches of x-axis travel to the 1236 with 36 inches in x, the 1248 with 48 inches in x, and top out with the 1272 with a full 72-inch range in x.
