3D Dimensional Quality Control - Reporting

During the design phase and the production phase, it is often necessary to use dimensional verification tools. Inspection systems should not only have qualities of precision and accuracy, but must be versatile enough to allow quickly measure parts or supplies in different parts of the process and with as much information as possible.

In recent decades, the inspection processes have used dimensional coordinate measuring machines (CMM). With them you can get a higher accuracy in measurements. However, this technology has some drawbacks: it is necessary to generate useful tools to position the piece and the subject on the measuring table, and it requires contact with the workpiece are not reliable in soft materials or deformable parts (unless a special tool is manufactured to hold them), the measurement process is slow and not so massive that no one has all the information of the piece, particularly in areas with free surfaces, are not portable and requires special conditioning installations.

The 3D optical measurement systems allow the problem solving. More and more companies use them to solve their inspection issues

Measurement with the optical system allows:
  • The entire verification of a piece without the manufacturation's need
  • The measure without any contact thanks to its special tools.
  • Thickness and strain gauge showing the result with intuitive color maps that facilitate the work of engineers.
  • Aligning the measure with CAD using different techniques: best-fit, benchmarks (RPS), and so on. measure objects and separately assembled.
