Why Is 3D Inspection Essential for Machinery Manufacturing?

Why Is 3D Inspection Essential for Machinery Manufacturing?

Precision casting is an advanced technology in machinery manufacturing. And the deviation comparison between casting and mold is very critical.

 

What does customer need?

 

Although manufacturing is based on drawings, there are still many deviations, besides, castings are complicated and irregular in shape. Hence, customer needs an effective inspection method delivering high-precision and time-saving, so that the comparison results can completely reflect the deviations and specified geometric tolerancing.

Machinery manufacturing

 

Traditional inspection method, however, is hard to precisely get deviations for complex castings and mold. Therefore, 3D inspection with high accuracy helps a lot in machinery manufacturing.

ScanTech solution

 

ScanTech handheld 3D scanner HSCAN331 can easily handle this, combining with professional inspection software to make data analysis.
