Inventis is an engineering company specialized in digital design. It is equipped with CATIA software for the design studies and 3DVIA Composer for the creation of instructions of assembly for design. Inventis has a real know-how for:
- Industrialization projects
- Prototypes and specific engine research
- On site statement and scanning
Inventis is a subcontractor of Alstom in Belfort (France) in the field of big power’s plants on production sites. The company was in charge to help them measure important parts of the alternators currently in maintenance process.
“We looked for a scanning solution as a complement to our manual method. The intervention on the alternator is complicated and requires to find one hundred of measures, but certain parts are inaccessible for us due to their geometry. Thanks to the 3D OptiNum scanner, we can make the measures on complex forms, as for example one "slanted circle» and a stator bar (picture). We made our first measures at the end of 2010 with the OptiNum scanner on General Electric machines in the United States. The results are very positive. We imported the point clouds file on a CATIA’s module and proceeded to the reconstruction of a RDS surface to get a 3D CAD model”, explains Pascal Breniaux, founder and manager of Inventis.
Ergonomic, so flexible and very successful product, a training day is enough for mastering the tool.
“The OptiNum 3D scanner’s use opens for us new markets for very specialized services. Three hours were enough to scan the stator bar in the United States in real situation. In our return, we presented positive results to our Alstom customer. Create 3D digital models and allow our customer to participate in the international calls for niche markets are a new realistic challenge. We are now ready for this challenge”, concludes Pascal Breniaux.
