    DescriptionEngineers from the North- East Productivity Alliance (NEPA) used a technologically advanced scanner to support 3M in Newton Aycliffe, in improving its manufacturing process.

    Sajid Abdullah, lead consultant at the Digital Factory, demonstrated the laser scanner, which provides a graphical comparison of the scanned item, automatically performing inspection, tool validation, wear analysis, object alignment, and 2D and 3D dimensional analysis.

    Mr Abdullah said: "By producing 3D point cloud data of the components, we were able to measure the components in every dimension, without limitations of specific locations as associated with 2D."
