Artec 3D scanning applications in quality control

Design Inspection
Manufacturing Control
Delivery Inspection

Take your Quality Assurance/Quality Control workflow to the next level with Artec 3D scanners. The traditional use of a CMM touch probe for gathering tens of points at a time across the surface of your products for quality inspection may be accurate, but it’s also painstakingly slow. And when you need to test your products and carry out inspection in quality control on large quantities of the same parts, minutes quickly multiply into hours added to production time. Not to mention that CMM units are typically expensive and hard to move around. Artec 3D scanners, on the other hand, are lightweight and easy to learn how to use. They gather millions of data points every second as you scan your parts in mere minutes. As part of your 3D scanning process, Artec Studio 15 software offers a variety of scan-to-CAD features for comparing your scans to CAD models. That means having the power to easily perform fast surface distance map comparisons that reveal any deviations present. For more complex QA/QC tools, Artec Studio 15 is conveniently integrated with the best inspection solutions, including Geomagic Control X.

Multistage manufacturing can introduce uncertainty and process deviation that lead to inaccurate end part results. Corrective investigations are difficult, unless a systematic approach with the proper tools is used.

Amid the Covid-19 outbreak, medical equipment has been in short supply for many hospitals. Led by a surgeon in Paris, a new operation was launched: to 3D print more medical supplies on demand, with the Artec Space Spider 3D scanner for the rigorous quality control needed.
