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.

Popular Airsoft Guns Reverse Engineered, Helping Bring Back Offshore Manufacturing and Secure 300 U.S. Jobs

Recently, my company had the opportunity to reverse engineer parts for popular Airsoft guns once manufactured abroad.  When this particular gun maker learned that its offshore manufacturer was using its proprietary tooling to “back door sell” guns made with the equipment, it closed down operations and moved manufacturing back to the United States, which helped secure 300 domestic jobs.  But no CAD models or prints of the gun parts were accessible when the gun maker returned production back to the U.S., and that’s why 3D Engineering Solutions stepped in. The gun maker employed our reverse engineering services to digitize the assembly of air gun parts, which helped make manufacturing once again possible.
