What Are the Benefits of Industrial CT Scanning Services? standard

Industrial CT scanning services use X-ray technology to produce 3D images of the item being scanned. The advantage it has over other 3D scanning methods such as laser scanning or optical scanning is that CT scanning can be used to see the internal details of a part. It is the same technology that has been used for many years in medical imaging. In industry, CT scanning services are typically used for; • Material Analysis • Assembly Verification • Failure Analysis • Internal and External Measurements • Non-Destructive Testing / Inspection • Product Quality Compliance/Screening • Quality Inspection of parts CT Scanning is used in industries including; aerospace, automotive, defence, energy production, and oil & gas. The primary benefits of Industrial CT Scanning services include: Improved product quality Industrial CT scanning services can ...

Additive Manufacturing – Not just for prototyping… standard

Whilst additive manufacturing (AM) technologies (also known as 3D printing) have gained significant traction over recent years in the design of complex components and creation of early prototypes, there is still some way to go before many industries adopt them for full component production. AM has the potential to not only transform a firm’s design and production activities but also to positively impact other aspects of their business, including product customisation and the reconfiguration of their supply chains.   Resistance to additive manufacturing in production The uptake of AM technologies beyond prototyping and small-scale production remains slow, as illustrated by recent research. A survey was undertaken of 110 product and industrial designers and design engineers located in 25 countries. It showed that whilst ...

Audi & Porsche Forced to Change Plans After Reverse Engineering New Tesla standard

The benefits of reverse engineering competitor products have been shown again recently in the automotive industry. Reports in the German press indicate that Audi and Porsche may be forced to plan a new direction for their electric vehicles (EVs) after reverse engineering and analysing the new Tesla Model 3. It seems that the German automakers are concerned that the Tesla’s progress in manufacturing materials and process linked to low production costs will prove difficult to match with their own planned EVs being developed to compete in that market sector. It is thought that the Audi and Porsche engineers are having to change plans for their Premium Platform Electric (PPE) programme because Tesla’s Model 3 is much better than they had anticipated. Part ...

Dutch Navy use 3D scanning to build up database of key components image

Dutch Navy use 3D scanning

(Adapted from original story in 3dprint.com) Marinebedrijf Koninklijke Marine, the organisation that is contracted to perform all maintenance and repairs for the Royal Netherlands Navy, are undertaking a project to create a database of key naval components. This means that they are responsible for the replacement of parts that have become worn or damaged as well as undertaking any modifications to already on-board components as required. The idea behind the scanning operation is that it would greatly reduce the turnaround time when creating new parts. The CNC coordinator at Marinebedrijf Koninklijke Marine explained the benefits that come from using these scanners versus using traditional reverse engineering techniques: “Using 3D scanning has saved us up to weeks of work – older processes were very intensive requiring multiple ...

Design for additive manufacture to add value to the whole manufacturing process image

The AMRC Additive Manufacturing (AM) Forum brought together industry partners to discuss the current challenges manufacturers face when introducing AM technologies into their businesses and how to design with additive manufacturing in order to maximise the commercial value. At the Forum, PES Engineering Director, Dan Fleetcroft, encouraged businesses to look carefully at the technology to identify what value can be added to their products and processes by utilising design for additive manufacture as a potential solution from the outset of a project. PES works across a number of high-value manufacturing sectors, offering design, engineering and data capture services. One of their specialisms is using additive manufacturing (AM) to improve product performance, reduce time to market and minimise development costs for clients. He said: “There are many benefits to utilising AM technologies, for instance we use AM to produce ...
