Composites Manufacturer Produces More Parts with Verisurf

"“The traditional method works, but it’s slow and not very accurate. The FaroArm offers accuracy comparable to fixed CMMs and software that is fully programmable for repetitive measurement so it greatly increases both the speed and accuracy of the inspection process. The result is that we are able to get more parts out the door with the same people while maintaining higher standards of quality.”Unitech Composites and Structures, a division of the AGC Aerospace & Defense Composites and Structures Group, designs and manufactures composite structures in commercial and military aerospace markets. Most of these parts have critical dimensional and structu...

Inspecting Complex Profiles

Using metrology software and a portable CMM, mold manufacturers can efficiently handle exceedingly complex surface profile requirements.More than ever moldmakers are pressed to push the envelope on what is feasible and reasonable when it comes to accurately creating complex profiles. Companies today are heavily vested in each new product they bring to market. And good is not good enough. Manufacturing specs are often riddled with GD&T (Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerances) annotations that must be met and reported on in first article parts. For a customer-centric brand these requirements are by no means un...

Computer Aided Inspection

Closing the Loop On Digital Manufacturing Workflow, While Moving Toward a Model-Based Definition EnvironmentConmputer Aided Inspection (CAI) software helps CAD, GD&T (Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing datums), and measuring devices work together to ensure design intent, and eliminate the need for 2D inspection drawings, while closing the loop on digital workflow. These are all important considerations when moving towards a ModelBased Definition (MBD) environment. CAD-Based inspection is a good first step toward achieving a complete MBD environment. The central concept of MBD is that a 3D CAD model provides all product information needed for all a...
