SMARTTECH 3D scanners in Aerospace industry

In order to evolve the hardware of their aerospace engines, MTU is experimenting with the process of Structured Light 3D scanning, a method that uses fringe projection technology.

Polish MTU team claims to be constantly pushing the envelope for potential 3D scanning application, using the measurement capabilities SMARTTECH to create 3D CAD . “We realized the work with MTU would benefit research into SCAN-based CAD modeling in its entirety, not just in terms of aerospace capabilities,” explains SMARTTECH  R&D Director Mr. Jasinski. “We learned a lot from the project in terms of how much farther we could push our 3D scanning technology to succeed in greater areas.SMARTTECH_in aerospace industry

MTU Aero Engines is Germany’s leading engine manufacturer and an established global player in the industry. The company engages in the design, development, manufacture, marketing and support of commercial and military aircraft engines in all thrust and power categories and stationary gas turbines. Operating affiliates all over the world, MTU has a local presence in major regions and markets.

SMARTTECH provided 3D scanning services for MTU using certified in independent measurement laboratory 3D scanner, with high resolution of 10Mpix what was necessary to gather all details of very complex engine geometry.  Gathered scans were used to provide CAD modeling  in the most advanced program for Industrial Design – GEOMAGIC DESIGN X.
