As the Factory of the Future learns how to manufacture parts as seamlessly as possible, portable metrology is making major inroads for machine control in large robots used for assembly operations that previously involved very expensive fixed tooling, multiple operators, and many days to accomplish these tasks.
This high-intensity, multidirectional lighting camera technology makes easy imaging of challenging part features on machined heads to provide a clear advantage for this automotive supplier.
With a need to focus on monitoring process quality during the manufacturing process, this laser radar system provides a unique alternative to the shortcomings of the traditional inspection methods.
Advanced scanning technology can now perform 3D analysis of a scanned turbine blade, automatic pour porosity volume analysis on an aluminum casting, 3D measurements with nominal-actual CAD comparisons on a machined aluminum cylinder head – and more.
This technical assessment explains how the new inspection methods for diagnostic measurement of sheet metal components and body-in-white assemblies at this Turkish automotive manufacturer involves cross scanners being used on coordinate measuring machines.
They are collaborating on automated scanning systems for aerospace applications, hosting technology workshops and training events.
Demand for faster throughput of conforming parts at reduced cost is growing the need for fast, automated inspection of jet engine components at the point of manufacture.
Investors rank them one of the World’s 100 Most Innovative Companies.
The Total Vu HMI software platform from LaserLinc hosts laser micrometers and ultrasonic devices. For specific measurement applications, combine any set of standard features and optional plug-in modules to create the perfect measurement solution.
The VR-3000 Series from Keyence provides an instant, non-contact 3D scan of a wide area that has been difficult to achieve with conventional methods. It can easily measure rough surfaces, flatness, warpness, and planarity.
The XG-X vision system from Keyence combines high-resolution 3D height images with ultra-high speed processing for inspection that cannot be done with conventional laser profiling or traditional 2D imaging.
