Rapid prototyping

Our partner Unilever applied an eviXscan 3D solution in their maintenance department. To ensure production continuity, the Company applies a reverse engineering process to recreate the elements that wear out in everyday production work.

Unilever, by recreating 3D geometry of machines, tools and components, can produce their replacements much faster and cheaper than before. Thanks to the reconstruction of broken parts using 3D printing technology or by CNC machining in the factory tooling department, maintenance costs have been reduced by 20 000€ quarterly.
