Santa Clara, Calif., August 24, 2020 – Artec 3D, a world-renowned developer and manufacturer of professional 3D scanners and software, today announces the opening of a new office in Shanghai, China, which will serve as a hub for providing sales and support to the Asian market. The office is a key milestone in the continued growth of Artec 3D’s global presence, which now includes the head office and production center in Luxembourg, offices in the United States and Russia, as well as a network of over 160 global authorized resellers that span more than 65 countries.
“Our industry-leading 3D scanning technology has transcended borders to find footholds across the globe,” said Artyom Yukhin, president and CEO of Artec 3D. “Reinforcing our presence in Asia demonstrates our commitment to further developing this market and supporting its vast and diverse industries. We are proud of the unique use cases featuring our technology that have surfaced from this region to date. Now, we are focused on strengthening the adoption of our technology across China’s expansive manufacturing industry to match the success we have already seen in the U.S. manufacturing market.”
Artec 3D’s comprehensive line of 3D scanning solutions includes professional long-range, handheld and desktop scanners, which are all compatible with its proprietary 3D scanning software. These technologies are critical for quality control, reverse engineering, inspection and design tasks across a diverse range of industries, including manufacturing, engineering, medicine, historic preservation, education, entertainment and more.
Professional scanning solutions from Artec 3D have already played a key role in helping preserve Chinese history. In 2016, an Artec handheld 3D scanner was used by researchers at Northwest University in Xi’an, China to scan the skeletal remains of young females that were found at burial pits located around the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor, Qin Shi Huang. This is a world-famous site and home to the first terracotta warriors discovered, which would be collectively known as the Terracotta Army, in 1974. More recently, the Artec Ray was used in Shenzhen, China, to digitally capture an ornate 15-meter statue of Guanyin, a goddess revered in both Buddhist and Taoist cultures, prior to it being relocated.
