Reverse Engineering & 3D Measurement Inspection Services
Quality Solutions (QS) can help you to meet the challenge in RE & QC inspection, we’ve seen a lot of applicability when it comes to the reverse engineering process. Oftentimes, a request comes in when a client’s old machine finally wears down. They are unable to replace broken parts because the manufacturer has long gone out of business.
In this case, they required our services to measure the broken part. We extrapolate the part using CAD to digitally “heal” it and create a model or blueprint. They can then take these design documents and fabricate brand new parts. Through rapid prototyping or traditional CNC machining, a broken machine has new life.
Others have used our services to improve an already working design. Clients have taken advantage of the downtime in their shops by focusing on optimization. They would spend the time to analyze the shop floor, running production lines in slow motion and opening maintenance panels. When they decide that they can improve their process through optimizing a machine, they come to us.
Using reverse engineering techniques through CMMs and scanners, we provide the high-resolution data that best represents the part. By using this data, our clients are able to make the slight tweaks to either form, fit, or function; with the end result being a much more efficient machine.
