What is your field of expertise?
Artem Yukhin, CEO, Artec 3D: “We specialise in creating world-leading 3D scanners. Our current pioneer scanner collects gigabytes of information within minutes: an exact digital copy of the object, measurements with submillimetre precision and colours with photographic quality. It is also the first handheld scanner with a built-in touchscreen display and that does not require any connection to a computer, but uploads all data directly to the cloud. Our product range also includes a long-range laser 3D scanner for capturing large objects – big machinery, airplanes, buildings, etc. – and a desktop scanner for very small items.”
We moved our headquarters here from California in 2010, and also have an in-house electronics production line here.
How do your clients use your scanners in the field of industry 4.0?
“Our industrial clients use them for reverse engineering of missing parts and products, which are scanned so that their digital image can be used as a basis for production on demand. Another common application is quality inspection and the quality control of 3D-printed objects. The scanners are widely used by the automotive industry – our clients include Toyota, Tesla and Mercedes, for example – as well as the aerospace, big machinery, furniture and fashion sectors.”
How do you work with the Luxembourg business community?
“We moved our headquarters here from California in 2010, and also have an in-house electronics production line here. We have done very interesting research projects with the University of Luxembourg, and national innovation agency Luxinnovation has put us in contact with industrial companies.”
