Absolute control in fine-art preservation
06 September 2021
KNOWN FOR its innovative development of electro-mechanical motion control systems, LG Motionis working with technology partner, HEIDENHAIN, in the world of fine art.
Digitising oil paintings valued in the £millions, LG Motion's art scanning system combines HEIDENHAIN’s position encoder technology and high-specification motion control equipment, with the latest digital imaging equipment and software.
This is all brought together in a modular portal frame to allow the creation of high-resolution images of painting, showing the finest detail and creating a record for both archivists and restorers to work with. Paintings can be easily scanned to identify any developing issues caused either by age or during transportation.
As a long-term distributor and integrator of HEIDENHAIN products, LG Motion chose the RSF MC15 scale tape encoder on a stainless steel backing and scanning head. These are connected via the HEIDENHAIN ENDAT bi-directional interface to ensure fast data transfer with high transmission reliability.
