Reverse engineering

including 3D scanning and data preparation

Components without technical drawings or CAD data can be reconstructed or digitised by reverse engineering. For this purpose, we use the latest hardware and software solutions in the field of 3D scanning and data preparation. During scanning, a 3D framework is created, comparable to a 3D photo. Subsequently, the 3D raw data is clearly evaluated and parametrically prepared by using Geomagic software. In addition, a fully defined CAD model is generated or constructed.
This process saves time and costs, as the raw data already represents a complete CAD model or only a few adjustments are necessary.

Design & construction

Based on the CAD model provided via reverse engineering or by the customer, a new or a redesign of your component is carried out, if desired. Particularly in the field of additive manufacturing, component optimisation makes sense in order to be able to produce cost-effectively. At the same time, the molds, devices and test gauges are designed.

On the basis of your idea, a first prototype can be produced that can later go into series production.

We use common software moulds for this.

Composite

Carbon is one of the most fascinating materials of the future. It combines high strength with low weight. This is a unique prerequisite for the energy-efficient lightweight construction of the future, which is becoming increasingly important across all industrial sectors. Of course, we also process all common fiber composite materials.

Our leading know-how in development, planning and production enables us to offer a unique product portfolio as well as first-class customer service.

Additive manufacturing

3D printing shows its strength where conventional production reaches its limits and offers many advantages:

  • fast manufacturing process
  • production on demand
  • high performance materials in use
  • high strength

Quality assurance

After finishing, the finished component has to be measured in one of the three air-conditioned precision measuring rooms, either tactilely or by scanning respectively laser. The target/actual comparison (deviations) of the scanned component to the existing CAD/volume model is clearly visualised and evaluated by means of false color display on the 3D model. If the component is measured tactilely, a measurement report is created. Both evaluations are of course made available to our customers on request.

In addition, high-precision measuring devices are used for the non-destructive testing of the test bars, which are produced each time, especially in the metal printing process.

The strength of the manufactured component is validated by tensile samples and their tensile tests.
