Can 3D Engineering Solutions find porosity of a 0.2mm size?

Recently, 3D Engineering Solutions was asked if we could detect porosity of a 0.2mm in a customer casting. Finding your 0.2mm porosity should not be an issue. We use Perkin-Elmer 16”x16” Panel detectors with a 0.200mm pixel pitch.  That means that for each of the thousands of x-rays taken of your casting, the individual pixel […]

Long Range Scan Alignment Using Spheres

When to use Spheres with Long Range Scanning At 3D Engineering, we sometimes have projects that involve conducting long range scans of large buildings. Scanning these buildings is more complicated than just placing the scanner in the center of a room and being finished after one scan (unless your building is a single room). You have […]

Reduce FAI/PPAP time & cost by 80%: The New Inspection Paradigm

Traditional FAI & PPAP Traditionally FAI (First Article Inspection) and PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) inspections include a complete look at all the print dimensions.  A typical dimension may take 10-minutes to fully program, collect the data and report using traditional methods.  Because prints can easily have between 150 to 1,000 dimensions, this becomes a significant […]

Why Choose 3D Engineering Solutions for your Industrial CT Scanning Needs?

When it comes to engineering services, we know there are many options to consider. To better explain how our services compare to the competition, we created a video that answers the question: What differentiates 3D Engineering Solutions from scanning bureaus?
