Quality Inspection and the CAD Connection

Printed courtesy of Advanced Manufacturing.org  Copyright © 2016 by SME MODERN MANUFACTURING PROCESSES, SOLUTIONS & STRATEGIESModern manufacturing is rapidly adopting model-based definition (MBD).  When employing an MBD strategy, the CAD model becomes more than the nominal to which all parts are measured and inspected against.   MBD keeps the all-important digital thread intact - from design to manufacturing to inspection and quality reporting. Everything that defines the part exists in a single digital archive, including how to manufacture and inspect the part. Comprehensive deployment of MBD in manufacturing can go far beyond this to complete Pr...

Verisurf Software and FARO Laser Tracker Reduce MRO Time

“The FARO Laser Tracker with Verisurf software ability to provide real-time measurements directly against the CAD data enables engineers to instantly visualize deviations from the nominal. The Tracker has dramatically reduced the time required to certify large parts, tooling and machinery while also resulting in substantial quality improvements.”For almost 20 years, Marianna Airmotive Corporation (MAC) has been repairing and overhauling structural components for the Air Force’s largest aircraft, the C5 Galaxy. As typical for most repair facilities, Marianna does not have access to the aircraft itself so it must build and certify fixtures that it can use ...

Portable Coordinate Metrology for Large Cast Part Machining

Machining large parts, especially castings, is not for everyone.  The generalization ‘parts are parts’ does not apply in this case.  To be proficient requires commitment to constant process improvement, equipment evaluation and investment.  And to top it off, mistakes are very expensive. There are unique challenges associated with machining large parts, today.  Customers are demanding ever tighter tolerances, parts are large, heavy and quite often castings.  Increasing quality and efficiency is a tall order – how can you do both?  TCI Precision Metals approached  the challenge by analyzing variables of the machining process th...
