Injection Molding

Quality Control of Injection-Molded Parts

Measuring Systems: ATOS

Keywords:  Optical 3D measuring technology, mold try-out, first article inspection, form and dimension inspection of plastic parts, production control, warpage & shrinkage analysis, material thickness inspection, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T)

The ATOS 3D scanner, measuring full-field surfaces, is used in the injection-molding and plastic-processing industry all over the world for shape and dimension inspection. The evaluation of injection-molded parts using the 3D full-field color deviation plot is considerably faster and more efficient compared to conventional measuring methods. In particular, warpage and shrinkage of parts are quickly and clearly displayed speeding up mold try-out and production control.

Computer Aided Verification of Mobile Phone Components

Measuring Systems: ATOS

Keywords: Time to market, clips and surfaces

This first article dimensional inspection defines the start of the production and is the benchmark for the quality of the parts produced in volumes. Therefore, it is a very critical process for both the supplier and the ordering party just before the mass production starts and the new model will be released to the market.

3D Digitizing of a Die-Cast Mold for a Protective Mask

Measuring Systems: ATOS, TRITOP

Keywords: Assemblies, Tools and parts

The protective mask consists of a single part with integrated fixings, sealing membranes and filter supports. This requires a very complex die-cast mold. The 3D data of the entire tool including all inserts have to be recorded in the workshop next to the injection press during an intended maintenance period of 5 hours.

Quality control of injection molded parts

Measuring Systems: ATOS

Keywords: High resolution, smallest details

Today innovative companies are utilizing digitizers to speed up the first article inspection process and minimize the effort needed to confirm the product quality.

Quality control in plastic blow molding

Measuring Systems: ATOS

Keywords: Heat treatment, blow molding, inspection

Fuel tanks for cars are typically manufactured using plastic blow molding. To verify the production parameters and optimize the production, the digitizer ATOS II was used.
