What we do?

PES Scanning – 3D scanning services and full engineering design solutions.

PES Scanning is more than just a scanning or metrology company. Our scanning team are fully supported by the qualified aerospace and mechanical design engineers within our sister company- PES Performance. They have over 45 years of experience working within high performance engineering industries including aerospace, automotive, energy generation, medical technologies and heavy engineering, casting and forging manufacture.

We can deliver 3D scanning services such as: 3D optical or CT scanning on both small parts or large, complex components. If you require 3D optical scanning of a large part, we can employ our photogrammetry system to ensure a high level of accuracy. Our high-quality 3D scanning system is versatile, meaning we can scan at our Sheffield, UK workshop or travel nationally & globally to meet your requirements.

At PES Scanning we can offer a full end-to-end solution from data capture through to manufacture. Whether you require 3D optical scanning services for a one-off part or a long-term partnership, we have the full capabilities you require.

We utilise a Blue Light GOM 3D optical scanning system (BLS) to deliver a number of specialised services for our clients. Photogrammetry is a technique of taking measurements of an object from photographs and is used to improve the accuracy when scanning large items.

CT Scanning is one of the solutions we can apply in the data capture process. CT scanning is useful when a part cannot be disassembled, as the process is non-destructive. The results produce internal and external 3D representations of a part. This data can be used for inspection or reverse engineering purposes.

Through our 3D scanning optical technology we are able to accurately capture data of any object. This data is used within the design and optimisation process as our engineers can identify areas of improvement within the object. This could include efficiency, durability, speed and performance.

Our planned preventative maintenance (PPM) services are about minimising the risk of lost production time and reducing costs for our clients. In the anticipation of pre-digital parts failing, we are able to 3D scan key components and produce manufacturing drawings to produce spare parts.

3D optical scanning and CT scanning are effective ways to undertake quality inspection by comparing your physical object against its ‘as designed’ model. We can generate several inspection reports to be part of your quality control system, as a documented aid e.g. colour error maps.

Using our 3D optical scanning system we are able to capture the data of an object, part or piece of equipment. This data is then reverse engineered by analysing its structure, function and operation. This is highly useful if your object was designed pre-digitisation.
