Advanced 3D inspection software from Geomagic coupled with optical scanning technology is helping Italy-based Scuderia Toro Rosso improve the performance and reliability of its Formula 1 racing cars.
“There’s no doubt that the use of Geomagic Qualify has brought us a number of very real benefits,” says Magaldi. “For a start, we are now more confident that parts conform correctly to what was designed. We are also able to inspect parts that previously we couldn’t inspect fully, either because we didn’t have the technology or because of time constraints or a combination of both of these.
One advantage that the team has over the competition though is the use it makes of Geomagic Qualify 3D inspection software at its headquarters in Faenza, Italy. This has reduced the time required to inspect new parts by an average of 30 percent. It has also given Scuderia Toro Rosso the ability to inspect parts that previously could not adequately be inspected within the demanding time frames of Formula 1.
Wysiwyg 3D is the master distributor for Geomagic and the certified trainer for Australia-New Zealand.
