As one of the top providers of 3D scanning services since 1998, 3D Scanners Ltd stays at the forefront of the aerospace industry. Our skilled team of engineers have a deep understanding of the field, therefore we can gather detailed data for you and offer a variety of scanning or probing options to suit your unique needs, all while maintaining an objective and impartial approach.

What is 3D Laser Scanning?

3D laser scanning is enormously helping the aerospace industry, not only by changing the way we design, prototype and test aircraft and their parts, but also by providing a whole new level of detail that was previously unattainable.

This technology allows us to capture millions of points in space, creating a highly detailed 3D representation of an aircraft or its parts. Additionally, 3D scanning technology is an efficient and accurate way to take a closer look at aircraft, helping you to improve your designs and manufacturing processes.

What is 3D Laser Scanning?

Capture the complex shapes and surfaces of an aircraft.

With advanced software like PolyWorks® you can quickly turn these detailed measurements into accurate digital 3D models, making your process easier and more efficient than ever before. No longer do you have to rely on traditional methods to capture the complex shapes and surfaces of aircraft and their parts.

Reverse engineering: This is a crucial process in the aerospace industry for acquiring design details from existing aircraft or spacecraft components. The use of advanced 3D scanning technology allows engineers to generate accurate digital models of parts, which can then be used to produce or modify components. This approach has become increasingly favoured in the aerospace industry as it streamlines the manufacturing of replacement parts.

Aircraft customisation: One of the main advantages of using 3D scanning in the aerospace industry is customisation. With 3D scanning technology, manufacturers can create custom aircraft parts and accessories that perfectly fit with the original aircraft design, improving its functionality and aesthetics. With the ability to create custom parts quickly and efficiently, manufacturers can meet the demands of customers for bespoke aircraft parts.

Quality control and inspection: 3D laser scanning technology has become a vital tool in quality control and inspection processes in the aerospace industry. With the high level of precision needed for aircrafts, any deviation from the original design can have bad consequences. This tech lets aerospace manufacturers to ensure that every component of an aircraft meets the required standards.

Design and prototyping: 3D scanning technology has significantly reduced the time and cost required for the design and prototyping process in the aerospace industry. By allowing designers to create accurate virtual models of aircraft parts, manufacturers can test out multiple design iterations quickly and efficiently, ensuring that the final product meets the necessary requirements.

Aircraft & Aeroplane Scanning

3D scanning has many benefits, one of which is the ability to create digital models of entire aircrafts and aeroplanes. By using this technology companies can save time and resources by testing and simulating virtually before building a physical prototype. Also, it allows for easy modifications to the design without having to start from scratch.
