Using 3D optical scanning to reverse engineer industrial turbine spare parts
Meet Johan, director of Energetic Machinery in Belgium, and experience his passion for industrial steam turbines. Their company repairs and replaces turbomachinery components. They use optical 3D Scanning to capture existing geometry and reverse engineer replacement parts or plan their refurbishment. The portable nature of the GOM and ZEISS optical scanners allows them to go to the customer site accurately capture geometry.
Energetic Machinery is a classic example of how manufacturing companies across industries leverage #HandsOnMetrology to drive their reverse engineering efforts.
3D scanning helps in the creation of perfectly flush frames and in complex assemblies.
Meet Olivier from E-bike manufacturer Cowboy in Brussels. The company’s aim is to manufacture urban mobility solutions that offer amazing design, seamless usage, and affordability. At cowboy, they are pushing the boundaries of design, including a completely flush assembly even though it consists of different components. To achieve the precision they need, they leverage the power of 3D Scanning to capture their complex surface. That information is used to improve the design and make quick design iterations.
