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...
