Reverse Engineering

Nanometric Accuracy at High Quality Reconstruction

To maintain the quality standard is a huge task for all the manufacturers in their day-to-day routine. Inaugurating irregularity parts costs more time and efforts to achieve the desired results and this is to be avoided. At the same time, mold makers and developers need to overcome the market in determining the success story of the product.

Reverse Engineering is an important step to extract the design data from a finished component (CAD model).          Firstly, the component needs to be scanned, it can be achieved through various processes (3D Scan processes, optical measurement, etc.). As a result, the point cloud or meshes (STL data) are imported to the reverse engineering tool for further analysis of the component structure.

Tool Correction

 

Reverse Engineering is mainly intended to assist manufacturers and designers to meet the requirements of shortened product development time and reconstruction in condition with high quality up to nanometric accuracy.

It is a paramount to wide industries such as Manufacturing, Automotive, Aerospace, Healthcare, Additive Manufacturing, Plastic industry, Prototyping etc.

Therefore, modernized Reverse Engineering tools are introduced into the industrial market. Tool Correction iterations are working with highly precise actual data, captured from the scanned component. Within a few iterations’, deviation points are inverted and transformed to CAD surfaces. Thus, a new surface is refitted to the original CAD design. It is beneficial to use the Reverse Engineering software to correct the tool with the tool correction function not just focusing on individual measuring points but over the entire surface.

Especially, in the plastic, stamping, die-casting and forging industry, Reverse Engineering is used for

rapid production

Tool Correction significantly replaced the time-consuming iterations by over 50%

The corrected tool helps to start the production faster

Very efficient tool for manufacturers as it reduces cost and market launch time

Under cuts in the designs can be identified and corrected directly with the ‘Undercut Analysis’ function

Areas of Application

  • If the original CAD model is neither appropriate to standard production methods nor having the sufficient adequate documentation

  • Product development / new modifications on old data set

  • Recreation of existing products

  • Digitization of components if no CAD data is available

  • Surface reconstruction of the components

  • Correction of tools to achieve better precision in the manufacturing

  • Recreation of both, parametrical and freeform geometries

  • Tool correction to the tool geometry based on part correction and deviation between CAD models and current tool

  • Part correction relays on the deviation between actual/nominal data by the correction of part geometry
