3D Scanning in Sheffield


At PES Scanning we can offer 3D Scanning in Sheffield. We have the 3D scanning and data capture services you require, for a one-off part or a long-term partnership. We deliver 3D scanning services, such as 3D optical or CT scanning on both small parts or large, complex components, alongside full engineering design services.

PES Scanning provides more than just 3D scanning in Sheffield. Our scanning, metrology and data capture services 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. These include; aerospace, automotive, energy generation, medical technologies, and heavy engineering, casting and forging manufacture.

We offer a mobile 3D scanning service at your facilities, and work in Sheffield & the surrounding areas. Or we can scan your parts at our Sheffield workshop. We can also use our photogrammetry systems to ensure a high level of accuracy when scanning large parts. Our high-quality 3D scanning systems are versatile.

3D Scanning & Photogrammetry

Our range of non-contact and contact 3D scanning systems to deliver a selection of specialised services to our clients. We regularly utilise our Blue Light GOM 3D optical scanning system (BLS) for scanning, This is often complemented with Photogrammetry to improve the accuracy when scanning large items.

CT Scanning

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.

CT Scanning

Reverse Engineering

Using our 3D scanning systems 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 before digital CAD design.

Planned Preventative Maintenance

Our planned preventative maintenance (PPM) services are about minimising the risk of lost production time and reducing costs for our clients. We can 3D scan key components and produce manufacturing drawings during your maintenance programmes. So allowing you to produce spare parts.

Design and Optimisation

Through our 3D scanning technology, we can 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.
