Reverse Engineering

Reverse engineering is a process of product redesign with 3D measurement solutions. It involves with reverse analysis and research of a target product, so as to deduce and obtain design elements such as process flow, organizational structure, functional characteristics and technical specifications of the product to produce similar products.

Reverse engineering is used for hardware analysis in the commercial and military fields. The main purpose is to analyze the design principles directly from the finished product when we can’t easily obtain the necessary production information.

With the increasing development of manufacturing and product design levels, complexity and precision make reverse mapping more difficult, especially for complicated parts with curved surface. Therefore manually map and reverse is necessary, or producing a complete product is almost impossible.

ScanTech 3D scanners breaks through the dilemma of reverse modeling. Our industrial-grade 3D scanners, like PRINCE, HSCAN and TrackScan series can get 3D data through professional 3D software ScanViewer, and accurately obtain the 3D drawings of curved surface, ribs, cavities, etc.

Quality Control

3D inspection is a necessary step in the quality control process for any product. However, in the production of precision parts, it is difficult to avoid a problem that parts have been deformed and caused undesirable quality in manufacturing process.

With the continuous improvement of the machinery manufacturing level, the requirements for quality inspection of parts and components have also become more strict than before. Quality inspection confronts with the following problems:

  • Traditional CMM is difficult to detect A-level curved surface parts with high precision
  • Difficult to obtain full 3D data for complicated objects
  • Deformable materials are not easy to detect
  • Manual measurement can’t reach high accuracy
  • Contact and manual measurements are time consuming

 

ScanTech handheld 3D scanners can precisely and efficiently solve the above problems. We adopt non-contact 3D laser scanning technology to capture 3D point cloud data of the products. Combining with 3D software ScanViewer, it will make very rapid 3D inspections on the objects. This cutting-edge 3D scanning technology has obvious advantages:

  • Complete scan data to generate accurate CAV full-size inspection report. It will be used to analyze deviations of points, lines and surfaces.
  • 3D laser inspection features in high efficiency, which greatly reduces the inspection cost and keeps the manufacturers stay ahead of competitors.
  • Handheld 3D scanners are convenient to various complicated working environments and have a wider range of applications.
