Application of 3D Scanning in Automobile Modification Industry

As the automobile market is gradually becoming saturated, in order to improve our competitiveness, we can only continuously optimize our products, and put a lot of effort into the structure, quality and styling of auto parts. The development direction of automobiles will be smart, comfortable, personalized, energy-saving and environmentally friendly.
Car modification is a kind of culture and a necessary stage in the development of automobile history. As the automobile industry enters large-scale industrialization, global parts supply is highly concentrated, and the homogeneity of automobile technology and manufacturing is obvious, modification is to meet the needs of car owners. The individual needs of cars, while pursuing performance, some people who have a special sense of fashion or car styling began to turn their attention to car appearance. In terms of car shape modification, three-dimensional scanning provides strong technical support.

3D size inspection of automotive interior panels

Automotive interior panels are an indispensable part of the car body assembly process. It needs to be fully matched with the overall car shell, which requires manufacturers to strictly control the tolerances within a small range.
Because the interior panel contains multiple curved surfaces, shielding surfaces, and corners, it is difficult to accurately measure with a traditional three-coordinate measuring instrument. The more complex the interior trim, the greater the accumulated error of the traditional measurement method.
Using a high-precision handheld 3D scanner to scan the entire automotive interior panel can quickly obtain high-precision full-size data of the automotive interior panel, effectively avoiding human measurement errors.

Car front car exterior modification design

Automotive exterior design has always been a shortcoming. To design an automotive component shape that meets the current aesthetic and functional requirements not only requires a long R&D cycle, but the R&D process is also relatively complicated.
The use of three-dimensional scanning technology can effectively reduce the workload of appearance design. Through reverse engineering, three-dimensional scanning of the appearance of the front fenders of similar models was carried out to obtain the three-dimensional data of the entire front wing. Redesigning the 3D model at a later stage can greatly shorten the R&D cycle, speed up the product R&D and design process, and improve production efficiency.


Automobile casting size inspection

Automobile casting inspection is a key part of ensuring automobile safety and functionality. For automobile castings with complex structures and irregular shapes, if you want to measure the geometric tolerances such as hole diameter, center distance, parallelism, etc., using a three-coordinate measuring instrument to test one by one, not only very test the professional ability of the inspectors, but the inspection process is also time-consuming. Laborious.
Three-dimensional scanning technology can perfectly solve this problem. In the batch inspection of the same model of automobile castings, you only need to scan a new sample, import the data, and the software will automatically complete the inspection according to the same inspection process, and at the same time generate a detailed inspection report to achieve efficient inspection.

3d scan

The application of 3D scanning technology in the automotive industry is very extensive, almost throughout the entire life cycle of the car.
Whether it is manufacturing, mold inspection, product inspection, reverse design, 3D scanners meet our needs and pain points with the advantages of high precision, high convenience, high efficiency, and real-time visualization. The establishment of digital inspection provides a more efficient and accurate way and method. Through 3D scanning technology, we will provide you with more comfortable and safe products.
