3D scanning is a versatile, advanced technology with numerous benefits for industry.
But if you want to use the technology, what is the best way of sourcing 3D scanning equipment?
First, there is a decision whether to outsource your 3D scanning or to develop your own in-house capabilities.
Should you opt for the latter, it’s important to access the appropriate kind of 3D scanning tech from a reliable, reputable source.
Using an authorised reseller solves this issue, giving you the necessary assurance that you’re making the right purchasing choices, backed by an excellent level of customer support.
Central Scanning is an authorised reseller of both Artec and Zeiss 3D scanners.
Why Buy Your Own 3D Scanner?
Here are key questions to ask yourself, which can help you decide whether buying your own 3D scanner, rather than outsourcing, makes the most business sense.
How frequently do you anticipate using 3D scanning? If it is a technology you will build into your regular processes, then it makes sense to invest in it and buy your own scanner. Supporting both fabrication and industrial design, scanners support a broad range of applications and processes. It may, therefore, be a capability you need to build into your business model.
How many different types of object will you need to scan? 3D scanners are versatile, but you may need multiple types if the objects you wish to scan vary widely in size and characteristics. However, by talking to an expert, authorised reseller, you should be able to find the best scanner for your needs.
How rapidly do you want results? Having your own in-house scanning equipment enables you to scan whenever you want, helping to bolster your quality assurance and product research and development.
What will your in-house training requirements be? Modern scanners are highly accessible, but you should consider training for staff.
Will you be compliant? You may be in an industry that requires a degree of regulatory compliance so, if you choose to buy a scanner, you must be sure its outputs will meet statutory requirements.
Why Buy from an Authorised Reseller?
There are several major benefits to buying a scanner from an authorised reseller:
An authorised reseller will have access to specific brands and models of scanner which other dealers won’t.
This is especially valuable in the specialist 3D scanning market.
