Laser Scanner Provides More Accuracy in Inspecting Highly Contoured First Articles
Realizing that many of its clients sought reverse engineering and inspection
services, management at Virtual Surfaces Inc. needed a more advanced measurement method of not only capturing enough data points to represent a contoured surface but also of
comparing two surfaces against each other. In addition, the high-volume data capture had to be accomplished quickly and accurately. After evaluating the products on the
market, Virtual Surfaces chose NVision's ModelMaker. The major components of the portable system are a 3-D laser sensor, a mechanical digitizer on which the sensor is
attached, a PC and software that extracts, displays and manipulates data..
