Going live with Artec scanners at Rail Live 2021

What: Rail Live 2021
When: June 16-17, 2021
Where: Booth J29, Quinton Rail Technology Centre, Warwickshire, United Kingdom

It’s been a while since Artec scanners have been showcased at a live event. And that’s about to change as Covid-19 restrictions start to relax (with precautions still in place, of course!) and regular exhibitions slowly venture back offline. This is exactly what is going to happen on June 16-17 at Warwickshire, UK, where after a one-year break, the UK’s largest outdoor rail exhibition – Rail Live 2021 – will be held. This rail professionals-only show will bring together industry experts, C-level executives, project managers, procurement specialists, engineers, and students from the UK and abroad to discuss all things rail as well as reconnect and reset during such challenging times as these.

As part of the fully packed program, Rail Live participants will have the opportunity to see the latest innovations in rail technology and meet top industry suppliers. Among them, Artec Ambassador Central Scanning will offer a wide array of customized 3D solutions from leading brands along with professional services, including 3D scanning, digitization, reverse engineering, and inspection. Find these Gold Certified partners at Booth #J29, where they’ll be demonstrating two Artec 3D’s laser scanners in all their glory – wireless medium-range Artec Leo, and long-range Artec Ray.

First up is Artec Leo, the one and only fully wireless 3D scanner designed for the most flawless and seamless scanning experience of medium to large parts or objects such as vehicles, furniture or industrial machines. Equipped with an HD display, onboard processing, and Wi-Fi, Leo provides complete freedom of scanning and the ability to move around the dedicated object. On top of all that, the scanner delivers accurate and high-resolution 3D scan data with 35 mln points/s acquisition speed. That’s why professionals in manufacturing, design, and engineering choose Leo as their go-to scanner for reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, and other applications.

If you’d like to capture something bigger, like a rail car or an entire train, make sure to check out Artec Ray. A long-range laser scanner, Ray is capable of scanning very large objects and areas as far away as 110 meters. With Ray, you’re able to achieve submillimeter distance precision and superb angular accuracy. The scanner comes with a tripod and can be used both indoors and outdoors with a few simple button clicks. For extra convenience, the scanner comes with a mobile app, which allows you to remotely control the scan and preview the results on your tablet or smartphone while the scanner does all the work.

Set mostly outdoors, Rail Live will be held in accordance with the latest UK government guidance and adhering to the AEO's (Association of Event Organisers) All Secure Standard, an industry-wide benchmark for the safe return of organized events.
