From the field

Development of frontal protection system at a distance

Spatial distance is not a contradiction in terms

Since the client is located in Austria and the production plant in Lithuania and the desired vehicle was not available in Lithuania, TÜV AUSTRIA Automotive was consulted. Thanks to the latest 3D scanning technology and know-how, the data required for the production of the frontal protection system was acquired by means of 3D scan. The manufacturing company already had experience with the use of such data, as components are already being modelled in-house on this basis. Thus, despite the spatial distance, he was able to precisely communicate what, how and above all in which resolution had to be scanned.

Results within a very short time

After the scan was completed, the data was made available to the manufacturer via the TÜV AUSTRIA subplatform and production could begin. Thanks to our support, a massive amount of time could be saved, so that approx. 3 weeks after the scan, the first parts could leave serial production.
