3D Scanning

Sandwell’s in house 3D scanning facility has been set up to support its customers to increase the level of technical feedback. It can be used to create a CAD model where original documents are not available but can also be used as a process technique to measure movement from pre to post Shot Peen where stresses can actively change component geometry.

3D Scanning

Parts can be scanned both pre and post process to evaluate structural movement and creep. Most manufacturing processes introduce unpredictable stresses within a part, with shot peening being used to introduce compressive stresses it is important to understand the changes in the parts physical geometry. Overlaid scans of pre and post process can be provided to indicate total surface displacement. With a volumetric accuracy of 0.028mm this information is both precise and accurate.
