Accurate 3D measurements directly in the production environment

automated inspection of castings 2318Cre­a­form veletrhu will be introduced GIFA (12-16 June, Hall 13, Stand B28) of its portable 3D scanners. Scanners are used in the casting industry, especially in product development and quality assurance. Visitors will also be able to learn more about automated 3D scanning solutions. When machining semi-finished cast and forged parts, the casting industry faces many challenges to ensure that the parts meet customer requirements.

To ensure the highest quality, parts must be subjected to regular tests and inspections.

With optical portable or automated 3D metrology solutions, foundries and casting manufacturers get a fast, portable, accurate and versatile instrument for measuring, testing and verifying castings during repetitive product development processes, as well as quality control and maintenance. In addition, thanks to the color map function, they can quickly identify discrepancies between the casting and its CAD file. Measurement and analysis software displays results clearly and intuitively, making analysis easier. Unlike touch testing, 3D scanning displays an overall view of the inspected part and measures surface profiles, not just individual points.

Portable 3D scanners

S prenosnymi 3D scanery With Go!SCAN SPARK, HandySCAN BLACK and MetraSCAN BLACK and the software platform for 3D measurements VXelements, Creaform provides a complete tool for accurate measurements directly in the production environment.

Lincoln Electric Additive needed a way to quickly and accurately measure large parts without having to move them for measurement. To meet this need, Lincoln Electric chose Creaform’s MetraSCAN 3D, the fastest and most accurate 3D scanner for the manufacturing environment.

Automated quality control solutions

Consolidated Precision Products (CPP) si vybrala industrial measuring cell CUBE-R from Creaform to perform automated sand casting quality control tests. CUBE-R has been developed for integration into a production environment for production line testing and is offered as either a turnkey solution or a fully customizable solution. It can automate the acquisition of 3D measurements without loss of accuracy – regardless of the number of evaluations that need to be performed.
