05 Jun Digital Advancements and 3D Scanner Enables In-House Reverse Engineering Technology

Constantly evolving and ever competitive, the world of 3D scanning and digitizing is on the move again and taking Lestercast with it.

Lestercast have recently gained possession of the new portable Artec 3D Space Spider Scanner, which will fully enable the process of reverse engineering within their casting business and open up yet another form of process and product development. First created for the international space station, this state-of-the-art piece of equipment enables digital images to be replicated on screen by means of physically scanning virtually any item.

Using specific light to scan, identify textures and replicating in full-colour through a specialised software package, the 3D Scanner is already in full use within the business with capabilities to use in all departments. For use in casting technology and development, the fast and easy methodology of obtaining measurements, dimensions, surface size and volume is a fantastic stride forwards.

The Lestercast team were privy to an in-house training seminar to further enlighten them into the capabilities of this portable scanning machine and the accompanying software package.
