RAMLAB 3D Prints AM Propellers to Quickly Replace Damaged Parts

From manufacturers that were the first to print a 3D WAAMpeller, RAMLAB’s vision is to produce repair parts on demand. And it doesn‘t stop with marine applications…  

A crucial part of manufacturing rotary motion parts is detecting deformations that occur during the welding process. Laser scanning allows measuring even on shiny surfaces from a distance to compare those measurements to design intent in Autodesk’s 3D measurement and metrology software, PowerInspect. FARO ScanArm enabled RAMLAB to inspect and verify a 3D printed AM propeller.

Zeus Engineering choose FARO®CAM2® Metrology Software to Support its Business Growth Plans

Zeus Engineering is a Scottish sub-contract precision machining company. For them, the ability to easily generate inspection reports and to clearly document that appropriate checks are performed prior to delivering machined parts to customers has been a key element for final Software selection.  

As they became more familiar with the FARO technology, Zeus Engineering quickly realized that it could be used for multiple applications. As an example, the FaroArm and the FARO CAM2 Software are now used to perform in process checks, before final processing. This is very important since raw components can be very expensive, so identifying any errors upstream can dramatically reduce costs.

FARO provide ATE Aerotech with ‘Tunnel Vision’

ATE Aerotech, a company based in East Sussex, specialises in wind tunnel testing. The company’s dynamic system comprises, a series of beams all located inside the wind tunnel. Before a wind tunnel test is undertaken, it is vital to calibrate the positional accuracy of the system’s various movable elements. The advanced FARO Laser Tracker has proven its ability to provide the required, challenging levels of accuracy over long distances. ATE Aerotech has found the tool invaluable and now offers it as part of their systems. 

Our recently launched 6DOF Laser Tracker is an upgrade to the existing system that enables easier capture of hard-to-reach features in hard-to-reach locations. This new functionality addresses a wide range of large scale metrology applications across a variety of manufacturing focused industries including automotive, aerospace, construction, heavy equipment and shipbuilding.

Inspection For The Smart Factory: Skills For Future Metrology

To suit the demand for more individualized products, it is becoming more common to reconfigure production facilities. These changes must be implemented efficiently, hence measurement and quality control is an essential part of this change. Today companies are driving measurement into the product development process earlier to ensure that all the product function sensitivities to manufacturing variation are removed in the design stage.
