A Move4D scanner is the latest addition to the state-of-the-art CAE infrastructure at the Chair of Assembly Technology for Textile Products at the Institute for Textile Machinery and High-Performance Textile Materials Technology (ITM) at TU Dresden, Dresden/Germany. The high-speed 4D scanner was developed at the IBV - Instituto de Biomecánica, Valencia/Spain, and will be a valuable tool for future research projects involving interactions of humans and their clothing.
This high-speed scanner is able to capture an entire body with 180 Hz and a precision of < 1mm, thus guaranteeing the precise analysis of interactions between body and textile as well as deformation during motion. The Move4D can record and analyze dynamic processes at a very high speed. Hence, this device will enable researchers to make significant contributions towards enhanced functional (e.g. for the sports and medical sector) and protective clothing.
Together with 3 already available 3D scanners, this high-speed 4D scanner represents the new “3D&4D Scan Lab” for the static and dynamic recording of small and medium-sized objects.
“By means of this scanner, we will be able to strengthen and extend our leading global position in digitalization and virtual product development for tight clothing in high-tech applications,” says Professor Yordan Kyosev, Head of the Chair of Assembly Technology for Textile Products who is looking forward to new co-operations in this promising field of research.
