Here’s another of the many ways in which laser scanning is being used in the development and validation of precision products…
Sometimes the difference in how parts function is best evaluated by overlaying one piece onto another. QC’s Engineering Specialists do this by performing a full 3D scan of both pieces, creating an STL file of one of the point clouds, and generating a comparative analysis (see image below) of the other to the first STL file. The result is a 3D image, exposing the differences between the two parts.
It’s an excellent and proven approach to evaluating performance between vendors or mold cavities – with the goal of improving performance of the product.
