Tool Life Wear Analysis

​3D Engineering Solutions’ proprietary analysis process documents tool wear patterns over production life. Regular sampling and analysis of production parts can be used to confirm part tolerances, giving early indication of problems with tool integrity during long production runs. Scan data can be compared at different time intervals or checked against CAD geometry to assure quality standards are being met.A primary benefit of tool life wear analysis is providing manufacturers with proven guidelines for tool management, based on specific machining applications and part tolerance requirements.

CNC toolpaths can also be generated and optimized directly from 3D scan data using optional software. This can accelerate mold/tool/die material removal while enhancing tool life. Core and cavity toolpaths for a variety of cutters can even be interpolated from a single scan.
