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.

REVERSE ENGINEERING PROCESS:

Reverse Engineering

Quality Solutions Posseses Great Skill on Reverse Engineering , reverse engineering has become a viable method to create a 3D virtual model of an existing physical part for use in 3D CAD, CAM, CAE or other software. The reverse-engineering process involves measuring an object and then reconstructing it as a 3D model. The physical object can be measured using 3D scanning technologies like  Metrology portable CMMs With the help of laser scanner  HD LLP Infused with POLYWORKS Metrological Suite with Accuracy Upto +/- 60 Microns.

 

The measured data alone, usually represented as a point cloud, lacks topological information and is therefore often processed and modeled into a more usable format such as a triangular-faced mesh, a set of NURBS surfaces, or a CAD model Using GEOMAGIC DESIGN X.

 

BENEFITS:

 

             Reverse engineering is also used by businesses to bring existing physical geometry into digital product development environments, to make a digital 3D record of their own products, or to assess competitors’ products. It is used to analyses, for instance, how a product works, what it does, and what components it consists of, estimate costs, and identify potential patent infringement, etc.

Value engineering is a related activity also used by businesses. It involves de-constructing and analyzing products, but the objective is to find opportunities for cost cutting.

 

Key benefits of this service include:

 

  • Higher accuracy on complex surface vs hand measuring
  • Faster process compared to traditional methods
  • Replicate existing geometry quickly and inexpensively
  • Replicate parts that have no tooling or CAD data
  • Accuracy of ±25µm (±001in)
  • Scan rate is 560,000 points per second
  • Reliable, repeatable and highly accurate measurement data is delivered with confidence as a result of superior optical performance
  • Rapid scanning speed increase coverage and reduce scanning time.

3D Measurement & Inspection Services

 

Quality Solution can help you meet this challenge with SCANARM  EDGE. We offer a unique service solution that delivers a complete Quality Control & Inspection Services.

 

SCAN EDGE is a portable Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) that allows manufacturers easy verification of product quality by performing 3D inspections, tool certifications, CAD Comparison, Dimensional Analysis, Reverse Engineering and more. SCAN Edge is the most advanced, state of the art CMM ever produced. Absolute Geometries will supply various inspections reports and files to help you analyze your product. Scan Edge is helpful in first article inspections, Inspecting new tooling for accuracy or old tooling for wear. Smart Sensor Technology warns against factors that compromise performance, stress free usage. Temperature sensors allow the arm to react to thermal variations for maximum portability and accuracy. Ideal tool to use considering the limitation of fixed CMMs. Represent the latest generation of Faro Products.

 

Key benefits of this service include:

 

  • Save Time and money on first article inspections
  • 100% inspection vs “measure what you can”
  • Every point on every surface is measured not just selected points
  • Eliminate necessary future inspections on areas that are well within tolerance
  • Less time collecting data means more time left to analyze
  • Shorten approval times and ship your product sooner
  • Accuracy from 0.024mm to 0.064mm
  • Intuitive on board measurement system
