Parts Scanning

3D Laser Parts Scanning offers enhanced reverse engineering and quality inspection techniques

PMC has experience in all aspects of the automobile and manufacturing industries, and can measure or scan everything from small, detailed parts to complete vehicles. PMC is the premier provider of 3d laser scanning systems and services, helping companies complete even the most complex reverse engineering, inspections, and analyses.

Benefits of 3D Parts Scanning

  • Reverse engineering capabilities and quality inspections
  • Efficient and accurate results
  • Compile complete measurement data of the surface of any object
  • Perform verification, ensuring that all parts match CAD design
  • Validation of tooling, even if no current model exists
  • Reveal interferences and inaccuracies using profile data and digital construction
  • Easily compare CAD model and physical part with Color Mapping

Quality Inspection Services

Make PMC your strategic partner for quality! Quality inspection using 3d laser scanning is a fast and effective way to match up your as-built physical objects to their as-designed digital models, revealing surface deviations such as warping, tooling deterioration and other manufacturing defects. Through this procedure, significant and quantifiable results can be obtained, improving your manufacturing process.

3d laser scanning is the ideal choice for securing data of complex and freeform shapes for inspection purposes. High definition 3d laser scanners capture surface detail in high resolution to which deviations readily appear over an entire object, which can be critical for inspection validity.

PMC’s expertise with a wide variety of inspection technologies gives you the ability to:

  • Quickly compare as-built to as-designed
  • Find and fix manufacturing defects
  • Measure cross-sections
  • Identify areas in and out of tolerance
  • Locate inaccuracies

Our engineers understand all manufacturing process requirements, from prototyping to production, and can help you identify where problems may originate. Our detailed reports reveal exactly where deviations exist, saving time and money over manual inspection techniques.

Benefits of quality inspection laser scanning will be realized in the cost savings, speed, and efficiency of your manufacturing process. The competitive advantage is assured in the object being created to its design intent, free of manufacturing defects.

Reverse Engineering Services

In using 3d scanning and its resultant data, we can reverse engineer an object efficiently to generate a CAD model from a physical object that has any kind of complex or freeform shape. 3d laser scan data can quickly be turned into a parametric model representing its current, tangible as-built shape.

With our experience with reverse engineering, PMC has many techniques that may aid your pursuits:

  • Acquire CAD data that denotes an object’s original design intent
  • Design a new part to fit to a legacy part
  • Accurately model performance surfaces
  • Redesign a part free of future manufacturing defects
  • Revise CAD models of your tooling to match shop-floor changes
  • Modernize your manufacturing process
  • Re-qualify used objects

PMC will also make comparisons between your CAD model and the object through a Color Deviation Report, creating sections, grid points, and color mapping in multiple views.

Our reverse engineering process outputs files in a modifiable structure, with each file then being professionally tailored to meet the varying requirements of every client.
