NVision Inc., a leader in 3D non-contact optical scanning for over 19 years, will host a Webinar on reverse engineering. The hour-long event will take place on Wednesday, September 30, 2009. Those wishing to attend this Webinar can sign up at http://webinars.qualitymag.com.
About the Webinar:
Today’s optical scanning technologies offer manufacturers unheard-of levels of accuracy and speed in reverse engineering and inspection of parts and assemblies - regardless of their size, geometric complexity or surface finish. Many of those who could benefit from optical scanning are often not aware of the latest technological advancements and their potential for significantly reducing production time and costs – key competitive factors in today’s tough economic environment. This Webinar will show attendees how NVision’s cutting-edge scanning technology can not only produce a higher-quality product – but do it while significantly shaving costs and time-to-market.
Attendees will find out how:
• Soft Air USA®, Inc. reduced the time to market for its replica guns by four weeks.
• A major turbine manufacturer reduced inspection time by 83%.
• The Air Force reduced simulated jet ejector seats costs by 75%.
• and many other real-world examples.
The scanning technologies to be discussed include:
• The MAXOS, a new system that uses a concentrated light to make measurements rather than a touch probe, which allows users to measure complex geometry - even if it has a shiny surface - without the need for spraying. The MAXOS is also unaffected by the limitations of ball radius compensation from which traditional CMMs suffer. It can measure radii down to 0.1 mm with an accuracy of +/- 2 microns.
• The MobileScan, a laser system that is automatically controlled to follow a pre-defined measurement strategy. This means that the scanner can be left alone to scan production items without the constant attention that is required by a handheld device. MobileScan connects easily to a standard notebook computer via USB or Firewire and comes integrated with computer-aided inspection software that automatically processes scan data from a physical part to generate highly accurate polygon and parametric surface models.
• The HandHeld scanner, a powerful portable scanning device that captures 3D geometry. The scanner is attached to a mechanical arm that moves about the object, freeing the user to capture data rapidly and with high resolution. An optional tripod provides complete portability in the field. Intuitive software allows full model editing, polygon reduction, and data output to all standard 3D packages.
