Measuring Massive Molds

Measuring Massive MoldsWhen working with massive molds, the penalties of rework are greater than those of smaller sized molds. Article From: MoldMaking Technology, David Olson , Director of Sales & Marketing from Verisurf Software  Finding that first samples are out of spec means more time, more money and more manpower to rework tools and rerun sample parts. This eats away at razor-thin profits and puts on-time delivery in jeopardy for molds of all sizes. But when working with massive molds, the penalties of rework are even greater. Following are three applications of successful large mold inspection and measurement. Example 1MoldMaking Technology’s 2010 L...

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...

3-D Model-Based GD&T for Inspection

Printed courtesy of Quality Magazine   Copyright ©2015. All Rights Reserved BNP Media The central concept behind model-based definition (MBD) is that the digital model contains all of the detailed information necessary for all aspects of the product life cycle. This includes everything from design to manufacturing, in particular, GD&T data.When the digital model is the authority it removes ambiguity, conflict and doubt that arises when drawings and models co-exist. When the 3-D model is the authority, MBD eliminates errors that result from referencing incorrect sources and makes processes more efficient.There is a common misconception that MBD is synon...

Verisurf Automates SLS Rocket Panel Inspection

Watch the Video   AMRO Fabricating chooses Verisurf software to automate the production inspection of NASA SLS rocket panels.In space flight the first eight minutes are critical; this is when the greatest opposing forces of thrust and gravity are impacting the launch vehicle.  The new NASA Space Launch System (SLS) will weigh 5.5 million pounds at liftoff, or roughly the weight of eight fully loaded 747 jets.   Everything comes down to weight and the integrity of design and fabrication to insure success.  Today, it costs $10,000 to send one pound of payload into orbit; since the entire launch vehicle makes the tripe to low earth orbit its net weig...
