Production downtimes can be a big hurdle and mean big costs for any manufacturer. As the saying goes, time is money. That’s why Computer Aided Verification, also known as CAV or deviation analysis, can be a valuable tool to quickly check pre-machining conditions, post-machining conditions, form, fit, function, assembly mating surfaces, and more.
“In my ten years of experience working for QC Engineering, I’ve seen an array of customers that have experienced the cost benefits of CAV,” says Steve Traynor, Engineering Manager at The QC Group. “They realize that a little more time and cost spent in the design and prototyping phase for CAV, actually saves them more money and time getting to full production. Which for them, ultimately results in happy and returning customers.”
Analysis of the color map can provide insight into how the parts fit together and function in an assembly, as well as deviation of individual components. A single laser scan can produce data for a multitude of inspections.
