Digitizing a Fire Engine with the EinScan Pro HD 3D Scanner

Rosenbauer tested the capabilities of the EinScan Pro HD 3D scanner in obtaining high-precision digital models of various fire engine components and equipment. Read the article to learn more.


Creating a Digital Model of a Fire Engine

Rosenbauer is a group of companies involved in the production of fire and rescue equipment, which is one of the three largest manufacturers of firefighting equipment in the world. Its products are used in more than 100 countries, including Europe, Asia and the United States. Rosenbauer has been occupying its niche for over 150 years.

Rosenbauer’s specialists, on the initiative of colleagues from the branch of the German city of Karlsruhe,  once carried out an experiment on the digitization of fire engine components. The engineers from Germany were interested in the capabilities of EinScan Pro HD 3D scanners.

Making 3D Models of Car Components

Deployment of the EinScan Pro HD system, which is designed to digitize complex objects, is easy and time-saving.

The specialists were tasked with obtaining digital 3D models of parts and equipment by scanning, to improve 3D design processes.

Rosenbauer decided to digitize the entire pre-installation fit of the equipment. To achieve this, the digital models were pre-compiled in KeyShot, using a digital version of the vehicle.

This approach allows for quick adjustments if customer requirements change, which saves significant time and makes the entire process more efficient. However, a question arises: what to do if there are no equipment drawings that can be used to build digital models?

With compact EinScan Pro HD 3D scanners, all necessary parts can be quickly scanned and the end result is a highly accurate digital scan. This way Rosenbauer specialists quickly got all missing object models.

A workstation with an EinScan Pro HD scanner was prepared for the arrival of the specialists. The mobility, versatility and ease of use of the system made it possible to do this in a few minutes – in a short time everything was ready to scan the various elements of the machine as well as its equipment.

The Ability to Scan Darker Objects

Data collection

The EinScan Pro HD scanner’s small size and advanced capabilities of scanning dark surfaces eliminate a number of operational limitations. It increases the speed of digitizing and makes the process easier and more convenient. For example, when working in the driver’s cab.

EinScan Pro HD is a compact portable device, which makes it easier to perform digitization in tight spaces.

High Acquisition Speed

The cabin’s 3D scan was acquired with no difficulties.

And the result can be seen right after finishing.

3D Model Processing and Testing the Results

The workstation is equipped with an autonomous power supply, which allows you to quickly check the quality of the result.

Using 3D Scans for Custom Auto Equipment

Rosenbauer uses 3D scans to work with individual customer requests – to equip specialized vehicles according to their requirements.

By digitizing with EinScan Pro HD, Rosenbauer was able to produce highly accurate 3D models of the fire apparatus and components, suitable for rendering in KeyShot, which allowed Rosenbauer to solve the task at hand.

The example of this project clearly demonstrated that EinScan Pro HD is excellent for high-precision digitization of 3D objects of different shapes and sizes.
