Built to perfection, Pagani Automobili combines beauty and attention to detail with the best racing technology.

Pagani’s hypercars are built to perfection with the help of cutting-edge technologies, providing their drivers with a unique and supreme driving experience. Thanks to the recent introduction of 3D scanning technology, the carmakers Mechanical Design team has optimised the department’s manufacturing “times and methods”. As a result, engineers witnessed impressive outcomes in carrying out quality controls throughout the parts’ prototyping and industrialisation processes.

As the company needs a high level of expertise to create what will become the object of their customers’ desire, the degree of craftsmanship and specialization required from all of their collaborators is inevitably extreme. New technology is chosen and integrated based on its ability to facilitate, improve, or speed up the development and quality control processes within the company, though it must also respect the core principles for which the brand has always been recognized.

Using 3D scanning takes dimensional measurement speed, accuracy, and versatility to a whole new level, giving engineers at Pagani the ability to accelerate the processes that were already operating in-house. Now, with the help of this technology, engineers and designers can effectively control every step of the vehicle manufacturing process, which gives them the space and time to complete more tasks, fine-tune aspects of the process, or just reduce the lead times drastically.

“So, reducing control time meant being able to have our people devote themselves to higher value-added activities.” says Francesco Perini, Head of Concept, Composites & Mechanical Design at Pagani.

The complex and meticulous process of designing and assembling a car by hand clearly mandates that Pagani maintains full control over the traceability of their processes. After all, each component within the manufacturing process might undergo variations along the way; this includes composites, which are integral parts of the company’s signature. Therefore, inspecting the dimensions of each individual part and controlling the quality of every aspect of the fully hand-assembled vehicle enables Pagani to ensure the quality of the final result and guarantee the car’s overall conformity.

Pagani can inspect and improve its unique parts throughout the manufacturing process in order to build vehicles that stand out for both their technological and aesthetic qualities.
