As part of its ISO 17025 quality inspection services, 3D Engineering Solutions announced it now provides color mapping technology for first article inspection of cast parts. Color mapping provides qualitative illustrations that show the difference between a scanned object and its nominal design, the company says.
The company primarily uses portable CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machine) laser equipment and precision structured blue light scanning to collect part data. Also available is industrial CT scanning to capture non-line-of-sight or internal features, and long-range laser scanning to provide as-built comparisons for bridges, buildings and other large objects. Each data collection method then uses PolyWorks point cloud software by InnovMetric to create the color maps.
3D Engineering provides ISO 17025 certified reports in multiple formats to accommodate various quality systems, including production part approval process (PPAP) and AS9100 requirements, for example.
