Sophisticated and state-of-the-art measurement technology is crucial for quality products.
We have several 3D surveying techniques at our disposal.
TACTILE 3D MEASUREMENT WITH COORDINATE MEASURING MACHINE
With this method, spatial coordinates of points on a part surface are tactilely recorded by contact with a measuring tip (usually in an attachment with a ruby) and fed into a computer. The data is then compared with the design data using special software to identify any discrepancies.
A laser is used to record the complete surface of a component and can thus be compared 1:1 with the design data. This method is one of the most accurate measuring methods used in plastics and metal processing.
In addition to the usual measuring, this method can also be used for so-called reverse engineering. This means that the scanned data of an object can be used to create a mathematical model. Thus, a 1:1 virtual copy of the object is made, on the basis of which it is possible to develop it further.
