Tested Solution, Trusted Quality

Inspection, a process to ensure that products are free from defects, is essential for manufacturing, especially for high-precision parts. The requirements for inspection are increasing as the manufacturing technology improves. Traditional methods are time-consuming and not efficient to inspect due to their limited uses and troublesome operations. They struggle to gather comprehensive data for intricate parts and fail to accurately measure flexible or curved components. However, the introduction of 3D scanning technology has significantly mitigated these challenges.

Quality control department employs 3D inspection technology to generate detailed 3D data of components. This inspection process creates virtual replicas of the components under scrutiny, enabling thorough inspection and analysis of critical parameters.

3D quality inspection systems streamline the measurement process for manufactured goods. Leveraging 3D laser scanning and photogrammetry, 3D quality inspection can precisely detect defects smaller than half the width of a human hair, delivering faster and more efficient results compared to traditional measurement tools.
