PES Scanning provides 3D scanning services & full engineering design solutions

PES Scanning is the sister company to PES Performance which is a high-performance engineering design solutions business working in R&D and specialising in aerospace, medical and other sectors.

PES Scanning is fully supported by the qualified aerospace design engineers within PES Performance. We can deliver cradle-to-grave solutions to clients. 80% of PES Scanning’s delivery is multiple part quality inspection, reverse engineering and performance optimisation.

So, PES Scanning is unique in that it is a business operated and supported by experienced and qualified design engineers.

3D Scanning Services

When it comes to data capture, for reverse engineering, quality inspection or design & optimisation we can offer a full end to end solution from data capture through to manufacture.

Whether you require a one-off part measured, or a long-term quality inspection partnerships of multiple parts, we have the full capability you require. We can deliver 3D Scanning Services including fast 3D optical or CT scanning solutions on both small or larger, complex components. To ensure a high level of accuracy for large scale CMM, we employ our photogrammetry system for very high global accuracy.

Our high-quality 3D scanning system is versatile, meaning that we can scan at our workshop or travel globally to work on large complex pieces.

Once we capture the digital data of your part, we can deliver tailored inspection reports, in 2D and 3D formats, as part of your quality control and manufacturing validation processes.

We can inspect a forging or casting to maximise near net-shape manufacturing; deliver full reverse engineering and design optimisation solutions, through to manufacture.

Our design engineers have over 35 years of experience. We also support and process the data for other scanning businesses to deliver solutions that fit our and their client’s requirements.

A full list of our 3D scanning services can be found on the menu above. However, if you would like any more information or want to understand the best approach to your engineering challenges then please contact us.

Siemens NX CAD software

Our engineering team use Siemens NX software. This provides integrated product design, engineering and manufacturing solutions including;

• Key capabilities for fast, efficient and flexible product development:
• Advanced solutions for conceptual design, 3D modelling and documentation
• Multi-discipline simulation for structural, motion, thermal, flow and multi-physics applications
• Complete part manufacturing solutions for tooling, machining and quality inspection

NX software allows our team to design, simulate and manufacture products faster by enabling design decisions to be made in an integrated product development environment.
