What is Reverse Engineering?

Reverse Engineering is a meticulous process that entails thorough examination of an object's structure and composition to enable its replication. Through the capture of scan data from the physical item, we can generate a robust CAD format, facilitating the accurate reconstruction of the original object through re-engineering.

Aerospace Reverse Engineering

Our Approach

In the realm of aerospace and aircraft, we employ a thorough and systematic approach to reverse engineering, guaranteeing precise and dependable outcomes. Our skilled team of engineers, designers, and technicians leverage cutting-edge technologies and equipment to execute the following steps:

  • Data Capture: Utilising advanced 3D scanning techniques, we capture highly accurate geometric data from the aircraft, meticulously capturing even the finest intricacies of the plane's parts or systems. This non-destructive method ensures minimal disruption to your original product.

  • CAD Modelling: Based on the obtained scan data, our experts create top-quality computer-aided design (CAD) models of the aircraft components. These digital models faithfully represent the original parts, facilitating seamless integration into your design and manufacturing processes.

  • Analysis and Evaluation: Our engineers conduct thorough analysis and evaluation of the captured data and CAD models. This crucial step helps pinpoint design flaws, assess performance characteristics, and optimise the components to enhance functionality and efficiency.

  • Product Customisation: Through the power of reverse engineering, we empower you to improve and customise existing aerospace components or systems. This includes modifying designs to incorporate new features, enhancing performance, or adapting them to fit into new aircraft platforms.
