3D Scanning, Printing, Reverse Engineering, and Inspection Workshop

Minitronics offers free consultation and demonstration on March 4, 2022

Published: Tuesday, March 1, 2022 - 13:00

(Mintronics: Darlington, UK) -- Mintronics will be hosting an exclusive workshop on March 4, 2022, for engineering companies to present their manufacturing or engineering problems and leave with 3D scanning and/or reverse engineering solutions.

Every company that attends will have access to advice from some of the UK’s leading experts in 3D scanning/printing, reverse engineering and inspection. For those with a particular manufacturing problem, the Mintronics team will scan their product and give them a workflow pack and STL files that can be used at a later date.

The team will also provide expert advice on their 3D technology software solutions.

There are many uses and applications for 3D scanning, 3D printing, reverse engineering, and inspection that cover a range of diverse industries, including automotive, aerospace, healthcare, marine, and other advanced engineering sectors.

During the workshop Mintronics experts will talk through the processes involved and provide advice on the best solution available for your application. These techniques are especially useful for those seeking to explore new markets or improve on existing workflow. Bring your parts to scan and explore the full reverse engineering process with the Makerbot Method series 3D printer.

Simon M., who went to the last event just in December 2021, says, “I attended so that I could get some hands-on experience with the scanners and software. It was fascinating to see how seamless the transition was from having a physical component to scanning it and manipulating it on screen.

“Having the products presented by people who use them daily in a work context was also excellent because I got a far more representative real-world use case rather than merely a sales pitch.

“It was also interesting seeing the array of problems other attendees had brought that scanning was capable of solving—from medical, mechanical, oil industries, and even jewellery. I found it informative to see the scope of solutions 3D scanning offers beyond my own field of automotive and motorsport use.”

Tom Minto, customer and product manager at Mintronics, adds: “3D scanning, reverse engineering, and inspection offer huge potential by providing value-for-money, powerful software solutions that allow engineering businesses to unlock efficiencies and workflow. We’re really pleased to be able to run this event to help engineering and manufacturing sectors.”

The event will be held at the Oasis School of Human Relations, Hall Mews, Clifford Rd., Boston Spa, Wetherby LS23 6DT. The start time is 9 a.m., and the workshop will run until 12 p,m.

If you’re not able to attend this event, Mintronics will be holding these events regularly throughout the year at various locations across the UK.
