Using Hollywood CGI Technology to Create Perfect Protective Coverings

Corrosion Prevention, Protective Covers, VCI Technology


The latest Avengers blockbuster movie and the hugely popular Fortnite video game series both use powerful software to create spectacular graphics and CGI so lifelike your eyes think it’s real. But deploying similar technology to create protective coverings might be even more unexpected. On today’s podcast, our very own Bob Coulter, director of data acquisitions & technology, sat down with MarketScale Transportation to reveal how his company utilizes CGI software to create perfect-fitting protective covers.


Leveraging his past experiences, he began working with the same software developed for media creation to model perfect fitted coverings.

“We’re probably one of the few people who utilize the software in this manner,” Coulter said.

The technology digitizes the process of modeling, so when a company sends over laser scans of an engine, Coulter’s team will use the software to design custom covers that can shield the engine from mildew, moisture, and microbials that lead to corrosion.

“There’s a huge percentage of our GDP that rots away in fields so protecting those assets is valuable,” Coulter said.

While his own background is unique, he mentioned that the company also employs fashion designers and expert package engineers who harness their special training to help in creating superior protective solutions.

From day one, Coulter said, he was “blown away by just how much talent was within Transhield.”
