Engineering Support Services: Aligning Smooth/Large Objects

Aligning Multiple Scans of a Single Object

Something people may not think about is the processes used to align multiple scans of a single object, as many parts require more than one scan to fully cover the object. Sometimes the part may be too large for the equipment to cover from one spot, or a part may need to be flipped over to scan the bottom. When this happens, two or more separate scans must be conducted by scanning the part in one position, then moving it and scanning again. Some parts have enough unique features to use for alignment, by signaling the software to use those features as the basis for aligning.

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 time and resource constraint for many projects.

Presentation to ASNT, January 27, 2015

The American Society For Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) is the leading technical society for nondestructive testing professionals. I am honored to have accepted an invitation to present to the Central Ohio section later this month.

The topic of the presentation is, “Precise Non-Destructive Inspection of Complex Parts and Assemblies with Inaccessible Internal Cavities“.

Date: January 27, 2015
Time: 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Cost: Free (food and light refreshments will be served)
If you plan to attend, please contact Jing Ma, Central Ohio Section Secretary, to make a reservation or for more information. All reservations are final on January 25.

A First in Industrial CT Scanning Services

We have been talking about our new industrial CT scanning services over the last few months, and now have great news to share. 3D Engineering Solutions is the first company in the world to receive an ISO 17025 certification for industrial CT scanning services. This means that internal and external elements of an assembly can be scanned and analyzed with intense precision, like no one else can.

What to Consider When Using Industrial CT Scanning

With 3D Engineering Solutions adding two new industrial CT scanning systems from Nikon Metrology, and the upcoming opening of an industrial CT scanning Center of Excellence (the first of its kind in the United States), I thought it would be a good idea to record my answer an important question about the technology:

When should I consider using industrial CT scanning vs. other scanning technologies for collecting 3D metrology and point cloud data?

Do you have any other questions or comments about industrial CT scanning or its uses? Please let me know. Feel free to contact me or call our offices at (513) 771-7710.

Partnership with Nikon Metrology Brings Industrial CT Scanning to 3D Engineering Solutions

We have been fortunate enough to form a partnership with Nikon Metrology and use their latest CT scanning technology.  These scanning machines use X-rays to penetrate an entire assembly at one time, eliminating the need line of sight restrictions you would have with laser, probe, vision or structured light scanning systems.  Its non-destructive testing capabilities allow us to scan entire systems without disassembling critical components.  We will break down the paradigm that precision industrial scanning is expensive and time-consuming.  Our services will provide ISO 17025 certification quality combined with excellent turnaround for our services and 24/7 customer support.
