Research Report: 3D Scanning in the Automotive Industry
With over 100 years of production history, the automotive industry has been at the forefront of manufacturing technology since its inception. Whether it be the assembly line, the integration of robotics into manufacturing or the switch to aluminum chasses, the automotive industry has consistently implemented advanced technology into its manufacturing and production workflow to improve manufacturing and product performance. The same is true today.

To improve manufacturing processes and deliver customer-driven design innovation, the automotive sector has turned to 3D scanning technology to optimize many of the critical processes in automotive industries.

In this research report, we will examine some of the ways that 3D scanning is improving automotive production and engineering, why it is important to invest in 3D scanning and what the future holds for this dynamic technology.

In this research report you will learn:
  • About the state of the art and the future of 3D scanning technology.
  • The types of 3D scanning technologies that are available for automotive 3D scanning.
  • How EIM manages all the data throughout the entire manufacturing process – from design engineering to the shop floor.
  • Examples of how 3D scanning is used in the automotive industry.
