The Royal 3D Scanning Treatment

Marinebedrijf Koninklijke Marine is the organization responsible for maintaining and repairing ships for the Royal Netherlands Navy. Replacement parts that have become damaged over time and over-usage fall under their jurisdiction. This is no small task given that they oversee 6 frigate ships as well as 23 additional vessels. In order to expedite their inspection, reverse engineering and replacement processes, Marinebedrijf Koninklijke Marine (MKM) has turned to 3D scanning services.

Partnered with Artec, MKM is utilizing the Artec Eva and Spider 3D handheld structured light scanners. Without having to rely on slow traditional measurement tools, MKM can now receive incredibly accurate data and create 3D models and 2D drawings from the scans quickly and effortlessly. Quality control is essential when it comes to the high precision parts required for any military vessel or piece of equipment. With 3D scanning services, MKM can now archive previous problems as well as 3D & 2D models and drawings of any replacement parts they might require in the future and access them easier than ever without having to rely on a 3rd party manufacturer.

The Military’s Future With 3D Scanning Services

In the future, Marinebedrijf Koninklijke Marine hopes to equip each ship with their own onsite 3D scanner and program so they can inspect and repair parts directly on the ship. With this level of precision and accuracy required, it is no surprise that the Royal Netherlands Navy is turning to 3D scanning services.
