Part-to-CAD Inspection - Aerospace

What the Industry Needs

All parts on a production line are subject to 3-dimensional verification that can be done using either the systematic method or by random sampling. In aerospace, quality control is usually quite comprehensive and requires a dense sampling of comparison points, especially on free-form or complex shapes. The part-to-CAD 3D deviation can be analyzed with color maps and user-defined comparison points based on all the measurements taken by the 3D scanner. Using the high-density data provided by the scanner, the inspector can easily visualize and document complete inspection of the part on all its surfaces.

Advantages of the HandySCAN 3D Solution

Part-to-CAD inspection in the aerospace industry requires dimension acquisition on parts of various shapes and complexity, which could have to be performed in any kind of environment. Due to its 100% portability, the HandySCAN 3D can perform acquisition directly in the metrology lab, but also at the customer's premises, on the production floor or at a supplier's plant.

Quality inspectors want to assess the physical part using its digital model. For that to happen, the acquisition must be accurate and the 3D model must hold all the information needed for a complete inspection. This 3D scanners for CAD are the best for that, because they generate accurate and complete mesh models.

Compared to traditional measurement methods, the HandySCAN 3D solution helps save a considerable amount of time. Dimensions required for the inspection process are quickly measured, and are readily available to the inspector.

Inspection for Machining Better Castings and Forgings

Producing parts involves machining raw castings and forgings. Specifically, the surfaces with important mechanical functions require machining. To optimize machining and ensure better quality, these critical areas must have enough material; otherwise, mechanical contacts might be defective, and tolerances might not be met.

How can Automotive Part Manufacturers Improve Productivity, Perform More Inspections Faster and with More Information

In the automotive industry, parts that comprise a complete car body are made by sheet metal stamping. These parts, which are all manufactured separately and punched in several stages, are welded together to form the final assembly. How can manufacturers make sure that automotive parts that are produced separately will fit together to form the final car body?
