Capture 3D Applications within the Automotive and Transportation Industry

 

Metrology within the Automotive Industry

Utilizing: ATOS 3D ScannersTRITOP PhotogrammetrySoftware, and/or Automation

In order to meet today's demand for higher quality, faster, sleeker, and multi-functional vehicles, companies are optimizing design, engineering and manufacturing processes to speed up product development to production. Within the automotive industry, Capture 3D metrology solutions are utilized for a wide array of applications for various departments.  

Some examples include-


 

Design

Automotive Design Clay Model Scanning

Clay Model Iterations

Improve your concept to market process by quickly capturing design changes and sharing the results.

 Automotive Design Milling from ATOS Scan Data

Milling from Scan Data

Save time and money by eliminating the surfacing process. Full scale clay can be milled directly from the dense scale model scan data. Same process can be used to balance full scale models.

 Automotive Design Competitive Benchmarking

Competitive Benchmarking

Analyze competitive offerings for performance, comfort, and quality through the digital assembly process.

 Automotive Design Computational Fluid Dynamics

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD Analysis)

Improve quality in a shorter period of time using scan data in CFD to reduce wind noise, aerodynamic drag and down force.

 Automotive Design Power Wall

Power Wall

High resolution polygonal mesh deliverables supports realistic renderings for internal and competitive design analysis.

 

Tool Building

Automotive Tool Building Digitize Raw Castings with ATOS 3D Scanner

Digitizing Raw Castings

Optimize and reduce machining time by 50%, avoid part collision, and unnecessary “cutting air” by using the raw casting scan data.

3D Scanner for Automotive Tool Building Try Out Area

Try-Out Area

Minimize the number of iterations by quickly analyzing scan data to CAD with an automatically generated color plot highlighting areas in or out of tolerance.

3D Scanner for Spring Back Analysis

Spring Back Analysis

Decrease try-out cycle time by accurately measuring, quantifying, and cataloging material spring back characteristics.

3D Scanner for Automotive Tool Building Die Duplication

Die Duplication / Copy Milling

Reduce time and costs while meeting increased production requirements by machining directly from the scan data of the production tool. Eliminates CAD modeling.

3D Scanner for Automotive Tool Building Die Fingerprinting

Die Fingerprinting

Thoroughly and accurately capture the geometry of the die after the try-out process. Data supports CAD modeling, duplication, and archiving.

 

Functional Build / Pilot Production

 3D Scanner for First Article Inspection Analysis

1st Article Inspection

Complete coverage scan allows identification of potential problems which other technologies could possibly miss.

 3D Scanner for Automotive Functional Build / Pilot Production As Manufactured vs. As Designed

As Mfg vs. As Designed

Rapid generation and complete coverage for inspection. Full color map report is a benefit over traditional & portable CMM data.

 3D Scanner for Die and Panel Inspection

Die & Panel Inspection

Speed up try-out and production processes by quickly scanning and inspecting stampings to guarantee part and tool quality.

 3D Scanner for Molded Parts Inspection

Molded Parts Inspection

Thorough and precise part measurements to validate fit and finish.

 3D Scanner for Sheet Metal Verification

Sheet Metal Verification

Rapid scan process delivers accurate and robust dimensional inspection reports including complex features, holes, edges, slots, and hemmed edges.

 3D Scanner for Body in White

Body in White

Scan and inspect complete BIW to ensure dimensional integrity for fit and function including flush and gap analysis.

 3D Scanner for Digital Assembly

Digital Assembly

Accurately compare scanned components and assemblies vs. CAD and mating components to solve assembly, fit and finish issues.

 3D Scanner for Validating Assembly

Validating Assembly

Monitor the build process in both production and pre-production assembly, validating the fit and attachment points.

 

Production

 Reduce Check Fixtures

Reduce Use of Check Fixtures

Save time and money by eliminating costly check fixtures by using less expensive holding fixtures. Save money on certification and digitally capture your nominal inspection points and features.

 Photogrammetry to Certify Check Fixtures

Certifying Check Fixtures

Certify your checking fixtures on the floor between shifts with a very quick and reliable process.

 3D Scanner for Root Cause Analysis

Root Cause Analysis

Determine the cause of manufac- turing issues by capturing “as built” tooling conditions for various types of analysis.

 3D Scanner for Trend Analysis

Trend Analysis

Monitor a process and identify problems before parts are out of tolerance to reduce scrap and save money. Versatile data formats support integration with Quality and SPC systems.

 3D Scanner for Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting

Quickly scan parts for immediate dimensional analysis and reporting. Scan complete part or tool features to detect worn tooling and take corrective action.

 

Marketing

 3D Scanner for Visualization

Visualization for Advertising

High resolution scan data supports manipulatable rendering for print, and commercials.

 3D Scanner for Visualization

Visualization for Web

Precise scan representation sharpens realism for online “build car” feature (rotate, change colors, views, and accessories).

 3D Scanner for Vehicle Review Visualization

Virtual Vehicle Review

Digitally render vehicles for side-by-side design impressions.

 3D Scanner for Product Review Visualization

Virtual Product Reviews

New vehicles and design modifications can be scanned and moved into the virtual world to allow product review on a global basis.
