KTM AG

Over the years, KTM has progressed to become one of the world’s most innovative manufacturers of high-performance street and off-road sport motorcycles. Since KTM’s entire sport motorcycle line is built using premium components, we require absolute accurate metrology equipment that can be used either at the factory or on the racetrack.

“For us, accuracy is the most important thing and this is one of the reasons we have chosen the MetraSCAN 3D for testing the different parts of the motorcycles.”

The selection of Creaform’s 3D scanning solutions improved communication between our design, manufacturing, and quality control teams. Now, data can be exchanged easily. Closer networking occurs around 3D scanning and it brings dynamics to the group. All teams can use scanned data and work together from the same information.

The need for speed

In the motorsport environment, where speed is proof of everything, measurements must be obtained quickly in order to make hypotheses and draw conclusions. The testing team needs a scanning solution that can measure the deviations directly on the racetrack and provide them with accurate data as fast as the bike is racing (or quickly, at the very least).

“With their impressive speed and accuracy, Creaform’s 3D scanning solutions have played an important role in our success on the race track.”

The prerequisite for winning performance

Never stop innovating

Sport motorcycles are built to withstand extreme conditions and to be pushed to the limit on the racetrack. Inevitably, the part parameters change and undergo deviations during a race. The testing team must be able to rely on state-of-the-art technology to measure these deviations directly on the track and not only when the bike is parked in the factory.

Creaform’s 3D scanners, with their legendary portability, have contributed to making us victorious in the world's toughest races.
