Automation: Non-contact measurement

Automation: Non-contact measurement

In this world where most of the things are done by robots, complete automation for quality purposes has still not been possible. Many companies are seeking for complete solution of this problem. Even to confirm that a small feature is correct, currently companies are barring huge loss of time in transportation of instrument’s each part to the traditional measurement lab and mount them. This is a drawback in production process and needs to be attained. Many parts are also produced in the meantime which are thrown away i.e., wasted.

The industry has been looking for an inline measurement system which tells the equality of the part within seconds and the correction for the next part. PreciTrack3D offers the inline non-contact measurement system and quality analysis within seconds and saves a lot of time and ultimately cost. PreciTrack3D provides complete automation for most of such tasks.

Quality Control

Software solutions of PreciTrack3D provides alignment methods for prismatic parts as well as freeform surfaces. The user can create alignments using geometric features, CAD surface, edge points or a combination, depending on the job requirement. If subsequent measurement results uncover problem areas, it improves alignment using a variety of best fit strategies. Multiple alignments can create independent verification areas or components within an assembly.

 

All mainstream CAD formats can be used which provides maximum flexibility to work with data from the customers or the suppliers. A powerful CAD file manager allows to manage complex layered parts, create assemblies from multiple CAD models and easily extract nominal data from geometric features.

 

Color-coordinated graphical displays of measured deviations and errors in the part allows to see at a glance whether measured points and features are within tolerance or deviates. This makes measurement results easy to understand and allows to get graphical reports with a single click. Color-coded surface inspection provides real-time feedback about conformance to the CAD model. This feedback on each measured point consequently improves decision making and minimizes wasted measurement.
