Quality Reporting: Digital Inspections on Parts

Digital inspections, which are available on molded and machined parts, fulfill FAI needs for critical dimensions, are faster than conventional reports, and are less expensive on low quantities. Our metrology lab uses a high-speed, 360-degree 3D scanner that collects data to identify dimensional variance and report on conformance to critical dimensions. The scanner measures a dense set of points on each part and provides 12 plane-to-plane, inner diameter, outer-diameter, and hole location measurements. A visual aid and color map for a direct CAD-to-scan comparison is also supplied.
