3D Scanning

High Definition 3D Laser Scanning is an intrinsic and highly efficient method of obtaining significant dimensional data in an enormous range of industries and projects, especially when critical data is unknown or missing.

APV provide this value-added service across a range of industries including automotive, defence, aerospace and industrial engineering.  By scanning test samples before and after physical testing we support digital twin development and simulation predictions.  Organisations utilise this data to refine the failure or deformation characteristics of their products prior to further physical testing.  This work brings about development efficiency and cost savings in support of product development.

APV’s Handyscan Black Elite, and the smaller FaroBlu Scanner with point measurement equipment, provide high quality scans from thumb-nail sized engineering samples up to full-sized passenger vehicles and SUVs.  High quality data can be supplied in a range of 2D and 3D CAD friendly formats to support your particular requirements.
