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...

First Article Inspection Under 10 Minutes

Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) have been around for a long time. But the goal of transforming to full model-based definition (MBD) has been elusive. One of the key disciplines where it has not been incorporated is in Quality Control. While organizations have partially employed model-based methods for CMM (coordinate measuring machine) inspection, most QA departments have continued to rely on drawings, manual techniques, and other non-digital means to complete the process. But now, moving the enterprise towards a fully modelbased process not only yields technical and process control benefits, but it can also greatly redu...
