Capture 3D Applications within the Casting and Forging Industry

 

Metrology within the Casting & Forging Industry

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

Casting manufacturers are striving to produce parts closer to net shape and meet tighter tolerance requirements. These industry demands are driving a requirement for quick, accurate, and more thorough part qualifications to ensure a final part exists within the casting or forging.  Capture 3D metrology solutions are utilized throughout the casting and forging industry.

Some examples include:


 

Design

 3D Scanner for Reverse Engineering of Casting

Design / Re-creation of Castings 

Quickly scan components and generate an accurate 3D digital definition to support CAD model creation, documentation of design iterations, and archive “as manufactured” condition. 

 3D Scanner High Resolution Data

High Resolution & Detailed Scans 

ATOS scan data captures intricate details and fine lines for organic and complex part geometries.

 3D Scanner for Complex Scanning of Casted Parts

Rapid Capture of Complex Shaped Components  

Scan complex and organic shaped components  quickly and easily without costly fixturing set-ups.  Having detailed and accurate data allows for faster downstream processing. 

 3D Scanner for Small Cast Parts Scanning

Small Parts Scan 

The ATOS 3D scanner’s ability to be configured to various size measuring volumes supports the precise scan capture of very small features. 

 3D Scanner for Extra Large Parts Scan

Extra Large Parts Scan

Measure large parts (i.e. castings, airplanes, etc...) while maintaining a high level of data accuracy.  ATOS system flexibility supports extra small to extra large scan projects.

 

Analysis

 3D Scanner for Quick Full Part Inspection

Quick Full Part Inspection 

Rapidly scan and inspect part to CAD, 2D, or part-to-part for a thorough analysis to quickly provide crucial information for faster decision making. 

 3D Scanner for First Article Inspection Reports

3D First Article Inspection 

Automatically compare your part’s scan data to the CAD model with an easy to interpret visual 3D color inspection map.  Instantly  see where the problematic areas exist. 

 3D Scanner for 2D Dimensional Inspection

Dimensional Analysis (2D) 

Compare “as manufactured” part scan data to 2D drawings for inspection analysis. 

 3D Scanner with GD&T Functionality

GD&T 

Easily verify and assure form, accuracy of fit and function through Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) features in ATOS software.

3D Scanner for Material Thickness Calculation

Material Thickness

Predict the flow of magma more accurately to understand stress and distortion during the cooling process in order to minimize cycles of rework. 

 3D Scanner for Sand Core Digital Assembly Analysis

Digital Assembly Analysis

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

 

Production

 3D Scanner for Root Cause Analysis within the Production Process

Root Cause Analysis 

Find solutions to issues by inspecting parts and tooling in each stage of the manufacturing process.  Accurate and easy to interrupt color maps support informed corrective action plan.

 3D Scanner with Trend Analysis

Trend Analysis 

Monitor your manufacturing process in order to depict trends.  Applicable to parts, assemblies, fixtures, tooling, etc.

 3D Scanner to Reduce Die Tryout

Reduce Die Tryout

Minimize the number of iterations and tool tuning loops by viewing an ATOS color map inspection report. Identify problem areas and understand the affects of the corrective action on the entire tool.

 3D Scanner Improves Product Performance Within the Casting Industry

Improve Product Performance 

Quickly scan and analyze data in order to improve product performance.  Have a complete and accurate 3D depiction of the part for better decisions for corrections and enhancements. 

 3D Scanner with Touch Probe Capability

Touch Probe Analysis

Enhance non-contact ATOS 3D scanning by adding on a Touch Probe kit to measure hidden features, discreet points, and deep cavities.  Probes and adapters are fully customizable.
