The Ajax Metal Forming quality assurance team has continually invested in new scanning technology that enables them to meet and exceed tolerance specs.
The FARO ScanArm, a technology that the Ajax QA team has been working with for more than a year, features opticallysuperior blue laser technology with fast scanning speeds to deliver high resolution point cloud data and the ability to seamlessly scan challenging materials.
The device is lightweight and very maneuverable for convenient desktop mounting in the QA lab. This is ideal for metal formed parts scanning.
What’s new these days is that the Ajax QA team can now use the latest ScanArm software to generate CAD files and documentation as part of a reverse engineering process.
The QA team can quickly digitize a part and create a fully surfaced CAD model which can then be used for tooling, manufacture, project costing, and redesign.
This process is ideal for a multitude of metal forming and reverse engineering applications including the development of virtual simulations, rapid prototyping, and composite surface inspections.
The ScanArm’s PolyWorks software is a full-featured reverse engineering software that combines history-based CAD with 3D scan data to create feature-based, editable solid modeling.
