7D Works, a company specialized in the digitization and reproduction of works of art, uses several Kreon systems on portable articulated arms for its heritage preservation applications:
For 7D Works, using Kreon scanners presents many advantages, such as lightness, comfort of use of the portable system, which allows on-site digitization, great accuracy, no contact with the ancient and fragile parts, and no limitation in the size of the digitized objects.
The 3D models generated eliminate constraints linked to physical archiving of artefacts such as staining and spotting and permit fast and easy access to the 3D models, easy handling and analysis of data, possibility to create and compare models. The models are directly available for reproduction in different materials and in different scales.
Involved in the reproduction of one of the throne rooms of King Ashurnasirpal II’s palace, built more than 800 years B.C. in Nimrud (current Irak), the Spanish company Factum Arte uses the Kreon Zephyr KZ50 scanner mounted on a 7-axis arm to digitize large-scale sculptures and surfaces with complex reliefs.
That portable scanning solution fulfils the Factum Arte’s needs to obtain digital reproductions of existing artworks to allow their restoration.
Cheminées Poujoulat have been devoting their expertise for more than thirty years to the design of complete smoke evacuation systems for houses, apartment buildings and industries.
Cheminées Poujoulat became a standard for flues, joints, casings, chimney stacks, flue for airtight boilers, smoke extractors, mufflers…
Poujoulat’s research department uses a Kreon Solano laser scanner with a Baces measuring arm to digitize hundreds of references of roofing tiles.
This allows them to virtually simulate all forms of roofs (with any type of tile, roof slopes…) to fit at best the stacks (external parts of the chimneys). This has enabled them to reduce the time and costs of adaptation of the stacks.
Legrand is the global leader in products and systems for electrical installation and information networks, offering more than 100 different kinds of electric equipments. A Kreon Zephyr KZ25 scanner is used on a 3D coordinate measuring machine in the Measurement Laboratory of the Quality and Environment service of the group.
The Kreon Zephyr laser scanner, associated to an inspection software is used to control new components and compare them to their CAD representation in order to obtain a color mapping of the deviations. The accuracy and technological advance of the Kreon laser scanners were important criteria in Legrand’s choice.
