Here’s another 3D scanning project on the drawing board for our Design and Engineering team. We’re designing thermal insulation blankets for the engine room firewall to suit this Hitachi EX5600-7 excavator.
As the firewall in each engine room is slightly different, Zach Johannesen had to scan both engine bay firewalls. The 3D scans produced relatively large file sizes as the firewalls are 2.2m x 1.9m in size.
This monster-sized excavator has some impressive stats with two Cummins QSK50 engines producing 1500 hp each. Not only that but it weighs in at 544,000 kg and features a shovel reach of 20 m and can dig to almost 5 m deep!
