Capture 3D Metrology Solutions for the Stamping Industry

 

Metrology within the Stamping Industry

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

With rising global competition and the need for efficiency, stamping companies utilize Capture 3D metrology solutions to maintain their competitive edge.  Optimizing stamping engineering processes are important, so cycle times can be reduced while saving costs on manufacturing and speeding up time to market.  Capture 3D metrology solutions are utilized throughout the stamping industry.

Some examples include:


 

Design

3D Scanner for Reverse Engineering

Design / Re-creation of Dies and Parts  

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

3D Scanner with 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 Small Parts

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 Large Parts

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 Die and Panel Sheet Metal Inspection

Die & Panel Inspection 

Speed up try-out & production processes by quickly scanning & inspecting stampings to insure part & tool quality with easy to understand pictorial reports.  

 3D Scanner for Spring Back Analysis of Sheet Metal Parts

Spring Back Analysis 

Decrease try-out cycle time by accurately measuring & quantifying spring back characteristics. 

 3D Scanner for As Built vs. As Designed Comparison

As Built vs. As Designed 

Rapid generation & complete coverage for 1st article inspection. Full color map report is a benefit over traditional & portable CMM deliverables. 

 3D Scanner for Determining Die Clearance

Determine Clearance 

Speed up die analysis without placing the die in the press or having to remove the die from the press to determine clearance & interferences by digital spotting. 

 

Production

 3D Scanner for Root Cause Analysis Root Cause & Trend Analysis 

Determine the cause of manufacturing issues and predict future trends by quickly capturing “as built” tooling conditions for various types of analysis. 

 3D Scanner for Digitizing Raw Castings

Digitizing Raw Castings 

Decrease the roughing process by 50% via direct milling from scan data (STL).  Optimize & reduce machining time by avoiding part collision & “cutting air” by using the raw casting scan (STL) data as the work piece. 

 3D Scanner for Fingerprinting Dies

Finger Printing of Dies 

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

 3D Scanning for Die Duplication

Die Duplication / Copy Milling 

Reduce time, costs, & meet increased production requirements via die duplication & mirroring.  Machine directly from the accurate scan data (STL) of the production tool.  Eliminates CAD modeling. 

 Eliminate Check Fixtures with a 3D Scanner

Elimination of Check Fixtures 

Save time & money by eliminating costly check fixtures by utilizing less expensive holding fixtures. Digitally capture your nominal inspection points and features.
