Identify unknown objects with 3D scanner and the Intelligent Finding technology

CADENAS Intelligent Finding technology reduces effort for maintenance and warehouse logistics

3D Scanner + Intelligent Find TechnologyCompanies have always relied on quality and durability when buying machines. However, if a spare part is necessary after several decades, it can get difficult to find the right component. To identify such parts, even with a missing label and with little effort, only two things are necessary: A 3D scanner and CADENAS’ Intelligent Finding technology.

Save time by automating search

Every year, thousands of new parts are developed and catalogs are expanded. It depends on the manufacturer how well components are labelled. Especially older components can only be reliably allocated through tedious research, since they are worn-out or insufficiently labelled. To identify parts correctly is not only a problem with older machines. Returns often come back to the warehouse without documentation and it’s time-consuming to sort them in again. CADENAS is offering a convenient solution for this: With a 3D scanner, a real part can be converted into a 3D model. Converted into a CAD file, it can then be compared automatically with millions of digital parts from more than 600 renowned manufacturers by means of CADENAS’ Intelligent Finding technol-ogy, integrated in the Strategic Parts Management PARTsolutions. Those responsible for maintenance and warehouse logistics can thus save a lot of time and effort in their work.
