John Wright Expands its Manufacturing Capabilities with 3-D Laser Scanner

Wrightsville, PA – John Wright has expanded its manufacturing capabilities with the addition of a 3-D laser scanner made by NextEngine, Inc. The NextEngine scanner can capture over 5 million data points on an object. 3-D scanning allows nearly any object to be readily transformed into a computer model. Reproduction parts can be scanned, manipulated, and recreated in plastic with a 3-D printer. Plastic models are then used to cast actual parts in aluminum and iron. Using 3-D scanning and printing, the most demanding, exact restoration projects can be completed efficiently with a quick turn-around, small minimum order, and no expensive machined tooling.
