Today’s hypercompetitive market requires manufacturing companies to adapt to a new pace brought forth by the Industry 4.0 which in turn forces them to review their CMM processes.
Lévis, Québec, March 4th, 2021—Creaform, the worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and engineering services, announced today that it will be hosting the first 2021 webinar of its Ask an expert series on March 4th. In this first iteration, the subject will be “3D Scanning vs. Traditional: Comparing CMM Accuracy in Automotive”. A must see for any industry professionals to scale up their production or quality control process, without sacrificing measurement accuracy and repeatability.
Traditionally, quality control (QC) and quality assurance (QA) in the automotive industry were tasks mostly undertaken with the help of a fixed CMM or a contact measuring arm. Today, however, companies are moving more and more towards automation for speed, efficiency, accuracy, repeatability, and to improve overall productivity. Now, robot-mounted 3D scanning CMM solutions are becoming the new norm in the QC and QA business.
In this presentation, Jérôme-Alexandre Lavoie, Product Manager at Creaform, and David Robichaud, Technical Product Manager at Creaform, will discuss these changes in the industry, the advantages and disadvantages of each CMM types and for which application they are most suitable for. Guest speaker Don Mahon, metrology specialist at 1 Source Metrology and a professional with more than 15 years of experience selling CMMs, will discuss real life challenges in the industry.
This webinar’s key features:
- 3D scanning CMM definition
- Comparison between 3D scanning vs traditional CMMs
- Real life challenges in the automotive industry
- ROI calculation tips for 3D scanning CMM
