Part Inspection/Metrology

When you require part inspection, 3D scanning can tell you so much more than conventional CMM measurement.

Our part inspection/metrology service includes scanning the part and aligning and comparing the data to an existing CAD master model, which allows us to quickly see deviations over the object or direct us to inspect specific points.

We start with a 3D scan using our metrology grade scanning system, and obtain highly accurate data, measuring the sample provided. Next, with the CAD master model loaded, we align the scan data and the inspection process begins.

Visualising the deviations of the comparison by means of colour mapping, we have easy-to-read results to quickly understand what the part is doing.

  • Easy-to-see twist & warpage
  • Check CAD revisions match: Sample/CAD
  • Add deviation labels and dimensions
  • Check sections
  • Use multiple alignments to interrogate the sample further

We go further…

Beyond reporting on the dimensional quality we can also use these tools and our engineering experience to analyse the data and look deeper at the root cause and effect of any out-of-specification components or assemblies.

We can check damaged parts to evaluate the extent of change and add quantifiable values so you may make informed decisions on your next steps.

REVERSE ENGINEERING

We use the very latest metrology grade scanning systems to ensure our reverse engineering process starts with the very best data possible to create CAD models for use in downstream processes.

PART INSPECTION / METROLOGY

We scan your parts and align and compare the data to an existing CAD master model, which allows us to quickly see deviations over the object or direct us to inspect specific points.

3D SCANNING

We produce high resolution 3D scans with industry leading accuracy from 0.03mm. We can 3D scan any object, any size, from just a few mm up to 100m plus and any surface, any colour.
