Industry 4.0 – also referred to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution – is a new digitised era of manufacturing. 3D scanning is a field filled with promise where the true benefits are only just being realised. As the manufacturing sector revolutionises, what role will 3D scanning play?
Part of Industry 4.0 is about the technology itself – Internet of Things, cloud computing, AI and machine learning are central to its development. It’s also about the problems that need to be solved and the practical applications for these technologies – Industry 4.0 will see the rise of connected systems that operate autonomously, improving speed, accuracy, versatility and more. 3D scanning technology is at the core of the connected factories of the future and will help to facilitate many of Industry 4.0’s aims.

How will 3D scanning be used as the manufacturing industry undergoes a major revolution?
The Benefits of 3D Scanning in Industry 4.0
How will 3D scanning benefit the industry of the future?
Many leading names in the 3D scanning space are already on board with Industry 4.0 principles. Creaform, an innovative 3D measurement solutions manufacturer, participated in the Hannover Messe, helping to showcase the latest technologies in line with Industry 4.0 and digital manufacturing. As the industry adapts and grows, it’s becoming ever clearer that the capabilities of 3D scanning and the aims of Industry 4.0 are intrinsically linked.
