The aerospace industry is one of the most critical and demanding industries in the world. It requires intensive planning, development, testing, and manufacturing processes to ensure the safety of passengers and crew. The use of 3D scanning can help to improve these processes by providing a more accurate and complete view of the aircraft or component under development.With this information, manufacturers can catch errors and correct them before they cause problems in the real world. In addition, using 3D scanning for reverse engineering can help to recreate legacy parts or create new ones.
3D printing is widely used in the aerospace industry, especially for producing complex molds and casting parts. It could be used to produce entire aircraft fuselages and other large components. It could also be used to create customized parts and accessories for individual aircraft.With advanced 3D measurement technologies, Scantech delivers comprehensive 3D solutions for creating 3D models ready for 3D printing so that aviation OEMs and suppliers can manufacture complex and customized parts.
Scantech’s lightweight and portable 3D scanners are the trusted instruments for capturing complete 3D data quickly and easily. They are also optimal options for measuring complicated curved surfaces, turbine blades, and dead angles.Thanks to their non-contact measurements, our 3D scanners truly realize non-destructive inspection. These handheld 3D scanners can get full-field 3D data without causing damage to the aircraft’s parts and help generate deviation color maps in a few minutes.
We cater to a variety of needs in Aerospace, specifically:
Car designers and production engineers work together to achieve the perfect design of a car, which requires a harmonized combination of aesthetics and functional requirements. Generally, it takes several years to turn a design concept of a new car model into an actual product available to the market.
A wide range of EMOs and automotive part suppliers are involved in designing, developing, and manufacturing motor vehicles. They are meeting the challenge of designing cars in a short amount of time to meet the fast-paced growth of the market. Cutting-edge technologies, including 3D scanning, are what they seek to reform the automotive industry.
Scantech allows automakers to tap into their potential to the full by capturing full-field and accurate 3D data of automotive parts with our high-precision 3D scanners and automated 3D measurement solutions. It is a way for them to accelerate product development and streamline workflows of inspections. It helps them to yield enormous benefits in quality and efficiency.
3D Scanning Streamlines Measurement Workflows and Increase Efficiency
Trains and subways are among the most eco-friendly and commonly-used means of transport. Ships and boats are essential for freight and world trade. Even the smallest components of these vehicles and vessels such as clamps and connectors must meet strict standards to avoid failures and ensure error-free processes. To ensure the high performance of modern transportation vehicles, manufacturers and engineers seek precise and efficient production control and cost-effective maintenance and repair.
Scantech offers optical measurement systems such as handheld 3D scanners KSCAN-Magic and automated 3D measurement systems AM-DESK to measure the complex dimensions of parts and even whole train body shells and ship hulls. Our non-contact and non-destructive 3D solutions can measure the parts thoroughly without causing any damage to them. The 3D data acquired can serve as references for product development, inspection, reverse engineering, maintenance, and more.
With ultra-high measurement rates, portable 3D laser scanners can help to facilitate manufacturing, improve the inspection processes and minimize downtime during maintenance. Thanks to the high-precision measurement results and portability of 3D scanners, we can help users save valuable time and money.
Mold is a cavity in which a fluid or molten substance is shaped into the desired product, which is commonly used in industrial manufacturing. Molds are made of various materials, such as sand, hardened steel, and plaster, depending on the application. The quality of molds directly affects the quality of products made in molds.
With the precision requirements for mold manufacturing rising, it is vital for mold builders to ensure the molds created are high-quality and secure their stability. This is where portable and highly-precise 3D scanners come in to capture full-filed data of molds to identify their deviations accurately and streamline inspection and measurement workflows. High-tech 3D scanning can be used in mold manufacturing, mode inspection, mold trial, and more.
Scantech plays an increasingly important role in mold manufacturing due to its advanced 3D measurement technologies. Our 3D scanners carry significant weight in mold repair, 3D inspection, and design thanks to their high accuracy, fast speed, and high portability.
3D Scanning Applications in Energy & Heavy Industry
Heavy industry is a type of business that involves a high capital cost, big equipment, and low transportability. The items produced by heavy industry used to be products such as oil, iron, and construction equipment, which are essential to economic development and industrialization of economics. As a part of the supply chain of other products, energy, and heavy industry has become the foundation to produce consumer products.
High-tech 3D measurement technology is extensively used in the machinery manufacturing of heavy industry, from product design & optimization, FAI, assembly analysis, and quality control to simulation.
Scantech’s portable 3D laser scanners, optical tracking 3D scanners, and automated 3D measurement systems can be used in energy and heavy industry. The portability of our accurate 3D scanners makes it possible to measure large-scale parts, including wind power hubs, tractor chassis, and excavator arms right on-site without having to move them around. Their advanced algorithm can deliver measurement results with an accuracy of up to 0.02 mm to ensure the parts manufactured to meet the stringent requirements.
Scantech is dedicated to helping manufacturers improve efficiency and take the lead in the highly competitive market. We cater to a variety of needs in energy and heavy industry, specifically:
3D scanning is not all about industrial applications, some non-industrial activities also require the engagement of 3D scanning technology. However, there are differences between the two: the former often has strict requirements for data accuracy and precision, while the latter tends to lean more on its other properties like the ease of use, color scanning ability, and adaptability to scan human bodies.
Scantech’s professional 3D scanning equipment supports both. You can find the presence of our products in non-industrial fields, such as medical rehabilitation, virtual reality, art and design, scientific research and education, and so on. Among all our products, the iReal 2E 3D color scanner is the most applicable one for non-industrial activities.
Scantech’s non-industrial applications can be divided into two parts: iReal 2E 3D scanning and 3D laser scanning. iReal 2E supports color scanning, human body scanning, and light-free scanning and it is very easy to use even for beginners. 3D laser scanning can work with iReal 3D Mapping Software to achieve high-precision, true-color 3D modeling solutions for cultural heritage, 3D digital collections, etc.
