roof bolter

3D Scanning used to create new parts for existing machine

A roof bolter is a specialsed machine design for drilling holes and installation of safety bolts in roof and walls of mines, power plants, tunnels and storage facilities

Our client needed a digital twin of the existing machine so that new attachment pieces could be designed in Cad and later manufactured.

Wysiwyg 3D engineers captured the roof bolter with three different scanners in over 32 positions and two configurations to ensure complete coverage, detail and accuracy.
Each component was remodelled included all bolt positions so the new attachment could easily be designed and built to ensure it fit exactly. The cad model was supplied in an assembly as separate part to make the file easier to work with. Files delivered as a STEP model for importing.
