B&R Metrology to distribute Scantech 3D scanning technologies and equipment and can now offer 3D printing service

Complements company’s industrial 3D printers VSHAPER equipment. Now offers 3D printing services for precision prototypes and end-use production components that give you accuracy and repeatability.

B&R Metrology has announced that it will be distributing the range of Scantech products that include 3D scanning technologies and equipment.

“Scantech has one of the most innovative 3D scanning technologies in the industry and we are proud to be able to distribute their products in South Africa. Scantech has specialised in the development, manufacture and sale of intelligent visual inspection equipment and provides professional 3D digital solutions for various industries,” said Bryn Labuschagne, Sales Director of B&R Metrology.

“Their R&D team have developed a series of 3D digital equipment with self-owned intellectual property rights such as handheld laser 3D scanners, composite 3D scanners, global 3D scanners, colour 3D scanners, tracking 3D scanners and global photogrammetry systems.”

“The company’s Prince series, which is capable of capturing extreme details and the AXE series with its high volumetric accuracy are global innovations and have gained great attention and recognition in the 3D digital field.”

3D digital expert solution
“Scantech is one of the earliest high-tech companies that started to research and develop handheld 3D visual measurement devices across the world. Leveraging its profound technological prowess, Scantech has established strategic partnerships with a number of world-class companies and reached cooperation for joint R&D centres and co-development plans with multiple optical metrology companies in Europe.”

“The talent pool in the company enables them to develop a series of proprietary 3D digital measurement systems. Their product line stretches from metrology-grade online and offline equipment and consumer-grade colour 3D scanners, which are widely applied in areas of aerospace, automotive, rail transport, mechanical manufacturing, medical care and rehabilitation, digital arts for TV and film, education and research, cultural heritage protection, 3D printing and VR/AR.”

“Scantech products are sold to more than 50 countries and regions. The presence of their distributors and international sales and technical support teams has been expanded all across the globe, providing industrial frontier 3D measurement solutions for prominent enterprises and research institutions like Boeing, NASA, COMAC, BMW, Volkswagen, GM, Apple, Siemens, JCB and Sany.”

The Scantech 3D solution
“An example of the advanced solution their products offer is the versatile 3D scanner that gives you simultaneously the functions of a normal handheld 3D scanner and a photogrammetry system.”

“The Scantech KSCAN is a 3D scanner that is a professional metrology-grade 3D scanner that satisfies a wide range of scanning applications, and delivers on its extraordinary capabilities compared with normal handheld 3D scanners.”

“The KSCAN 3D scanner performs precise large-scale measuring without the help of other measuring devices, reaching an accuracy of 0.020mm and volumetric accuracy of 0.035mm/m. This versatile 3D scanner greatly streamlines operation procedures and effectively tackles the difficulties for automotive manufacturers, for example.”

“The KSCAN 3D scanner can be applied for reverse engineering, 3D printing, product development, 3D visualisation, numerical simulation and other metrology applications.”

3D scanning and printing service
“Earlier this year the company further enhanced our complementary product portfolio with the signing of an agency agreement with the Polish manufacturer of industrial 3D printers VSHAPER.”

“This product portfolio has now been increased with the addition of Scantech 3D measuring products. We can now provide a means of accountability and certainty in the production and manufacturing industry with coordinate measuring machines, portable inspection, portable scanning, reverse engineering and inspection.”

“Our services have been further enhanced in that we will be offering our clients the opportunity to have their component or product accurately scanned, we will reverse engineer it, provide a functional prototype and once approved do the 3D printing for them. Whether they are complex part designs or serial production components, we have the equipment to supply. You can either upload your 3D CAD files or we can do a CAD design for you.”

“We now have the complete service for you to quickly determine the feasability of your product and rapidly get it into the market place.”
