3D printing in reverse engineering

Whether in the pump industry or in the classic car sector: more and more spare parts are produced without tools by using modern scanning technology combined with 3D printing. This process offers decisive economic advantages. Conventional production - especially of individual parts - often takes too long and causes high costs. Scanning technology is used to initially produce a digital reproduction when no technical drawings or CAD data are available.

The result: a digital 3D data set, which offers a basis for 3D printing that is true to the original.

Spare parts can be reproduced quickly and economically by combining scanning and printing technologies - and valuable classic cars or old impellers can be replaced with new parts.

With the help of the combination of scanning and printing technology, spare parts can be produced again quickly and cost-effectively. Valuable vintage cars or pumps and impellers operated for decades can thus be repaired and maintained with new parts.
