AM Americas Exhibitor Spotlight Series: Evatronix

3D scanning

AM Shows and Disruptive Magazine have decided to join forces in the lead up to Additive Manufacturing Americas 2017 and bring you the Exhibitor Spotlight series. This is an opportunity for exhibitors to fill you in on the products and services they intend to showcase at the event as well as share their views on the future of industrial 3D printing/additive manufacturing (AM). If you like what you read, all the more reason to come meet them on December 6-8, in Pasadena, USA.

Company description: Evatronix is a Polish company focused on the implementation of innovative technologies in various areas of modern production; it offers comprehensive solutions in the field of electronic systems design and implementation CAD/CAM solutions, and manufactures advanced high-precision professional 3D scanners.

What products and/or services will you be showcasing at Additive Manufacturing Americas 2017?
eviXscan 3D, a family of high-precision optical 3D scanners using structured light technology. Evatronix offers five models of scanners designed for high-precision applications in the areas of reverse engineering, contactless quality control and rapid prototyping. Based on domain knowledge in high-tech 3D scanning, the company offers advanced 3D scanning services, CAD modelling services and high-quality inspection services.

What influenced your decision to exhibit at Additive Manufacturing Americas 2017?
The opportunity to present our solutions to existing and potential customers in, for example, the aerospace and automotive industries as well as high-tech companies focused on precision mechanics, machine construction, mechanical design and production.

What do you consider to be the key potential for OEMs adopting or optimizing the use of 3D printing/AM and advanced design and manufacturing technologies, and how is your company positioning itself to realize this potential?
In any kind of production involving machinery, there is a demand for very precise measurement as well as quality inspection. Also, there is the constant need to create, modify and maintain 3D models for designs. Our company focuses on the aforementioned by bringing to the market 3D scanning technology, a disruptive precise measuring and 3D model creation technology.

What in your opinion will be the next big advance for 3D printing/AM?
From the point of view of 3D scanning, we are seeing huge technological advances in the application of new light source technologies, allowing for better reproduction of shiny or black objects as well as scanning of bigger-size objects. There is a lot of progress being made on image processing algorithms to increase the accuracy of scans and the speed of acquisition. Also, innovative technologies have recently been introduced by our company to intelligently handle the reference targets, so that the user can significantly limit their numbers, which in turn increases the ease of use of our scanning systems.

If you could say one thing to convince OEMs to embrace 3D printing/AM and the ecosystem of allied technologies, what would it be?
Companies can significantly increase their return on investment (ROI) through applying high-tech scanning technology. It increases the precision of measurement and 3D model creation and lowers overall model creation time, then there is the reduction in effort required. All this allows for a significant cost reduction as well as enables the user to remain much more competitive in the market.
