Data acquired from either 3D or CT scanning is only the start of the design and optimisation process
Accurately captured data is the foundation of design and optimisation.
The common output from scanning is through the reverse engineering of legacy equipment, as part of a quality Planned Preventative Maintenance program. Through effective planning our manufacturing clients can reduce down-time when crucial equipment fails, potentially saving thousands.
The PES Scanning team utilises a blue light GOM system to deliver a number of specialised services for our clients. The main focus from an engineering design perspective being in the reverse engineering process to allow for design and optimisation. We have selected this system and technology due to its:
- Accuracy and repeatability of results
- Mobility of the system. Scanning as a bureau service or at your premises
- The only system of choice, used by leading OEMS, Rolls-Royce, Boeing & Jaguar Land-Rover
- Auditable calibration process, ideal in the aerospace and oil & gas sectors
Applications for Design and Optimisation:
We have applied this technology in a number of diverse sectors including: Aerospace, Automotive, Marine, products, Motorsports, Olympic Sport, Renewable Energy and Specialist Tooling, Classic restoration and Heritage to name a few. Our engineers also have experience operating in these sectors and can support you to maximise the results from the data capture and engineering process.
One of the key areas in demand from our clients is for data capture of legacy parts. i.e. Those parts that pre-date digitised design and therefore by capturing data the product can be digitised and then input into CAD and an accurate model produced. Once the data has been input and a model produced in CAD we can then start optimising, redesigned or just store in a digital library.
N.B Note the data received from the scanner is imported as an image file into CAD and only then can a CAD model be produced.
If you would like to discuss how 3D optical scanning can provide a design and optimisation solution for your project, please call us for a chat or e-mail us and we will do our very best to support your requirements.
As technology is also moving forward dramatically we would be happy to present the application and use of this technology to you or your engineering teams so they can have an understanding if it is ever required in the future.
