3D scanning penetrates all aspects of automobile manufacturing.

3D Scanning Penetrates All Aspects of Automobile Manufacturing


How does 3D scanning help automakers stand out in the highly competitive automotive manufacturing market? Lower development cost, distinctive design, and strict quality control are significant factors affecting automakers’ great strategic goals.

ScanTech has accumulated rich experience in the automotive manufacturing industry these years. We provide professional comprehensive metrology-grade 3D solutions for automakers and all aspects of automotive manufacturing.

Our advanced 3D laser scanners can quickly and easily acquire 3D data of the workpieces. It is convenient to redesign and reshape the products’ appearance through reverse design. Such a time-saving way greatly shortens the product development cycle.

For quality control, ScanTech handheld 3D laser scanners can detect and compare key components such as engines, transmissions, and steering gears. The deviations can be accurately obtained in the production process to achieve high precision with advanced 3D measurement technologies.

Quality Control

Deviations of each position can be easily obtained by comparing 3D data and original CAD drawings, which brings great convenience for dimensional detection of complex objects and curve surface. In addition, data fitting contributes to getting data of coaxially, hole pitch, and assembly clearance and 2D dimensions.

Automotive 3D scanning

Virtual Assembly

3D scanning assembly to obtain a complete high-precision 3D model. The assembly can be simulated through professional 3D software, easy to get the assembly results and analysis. If the virtual assembly fails, the assembly can be later improved based on the deviation data.

Reverse Engineering

3D scanners can get the ultra-high 3D data of objects. When transmitting 3D data to 3D modeling software, it will give data support for shape design, extremely reduce the time of artificial mapping. Moreover, the accuracy of 3D laser scanners can be up to 0.03mm to ensure more accurate reverse modeling, which saves development cost and shortens development cycles for automotive manufacturers.

Motion Analysis

When using 3D laser scanner to perform 3D scanning on car doors and trunks under starting and shutting down, we can obtain structural relationship under different motion conditions, therefore, the subsequent structural analysis and dimensional design will get precise 3D data.
