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...
