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 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 ...

Model Based Inspection of Aerospace Parts

Participants in the aerospace industry have substantially reduced if not eliminated the use of 2D drawings to convey dimensional and design intent information about parts and assemblies throughout the various stages of manufacturing. The industry has accomplished this via the widespread implementation of Model Based Defini-tion (MBD), particularly by OEMs and their First-Tier suppliers. The use of a single authoritative digital source of part information has numerous systemic benefits, including:Eliminating errors that result from referencing an incorrect source.Making processes more efficient—no more searching to determine correct revision levels.Eliminating ...
