Why 3D Scanning Important to Aerospace Manufacturing
During aircraft manufacturing, 3D inspection is widely applied to development, design, manufacturing, assembly, testing and MRO (Maintenance, repair, operations), which brings unprecedented efficiency to each procedure.
Precision’s world-leading 3D measurement technologies deliver comprehensive 3D solutions for aircraft manufacturers to overcome intractable issues.
3D Scanning and 3D Inspection on Aerospace Manufacturing
Wind Tunnel Testing
During wind tunnel testing, the 3D scanning will get the deviations between the scaled-down 3D model and real aircraft to ensure the data accuracy.
Structural Design · Reverse Engineering
Through 3D scanning of the whole aircraft, we can get precise 3D data and then generate CAD models. The dimensions of the fuselage and equipped facilities will be completely reconstruction for further development and design. Precision provides the reliable 3D digital solution with lower cost and leading edge technologies.
Quality Control · Virtual Assembly
The 3D model obtained by 3D scanning can be applied to the virtual assembly that can verify the correctness of assembly design, operation by 3D visualization and spatial interaction. Precision 3D scanners deliver professional 3D digital support for virtual assembly, which is convenient to timely discover the problems during assembling and modify the model. Therefore, the workflow of quality control during product development and lifecycle will be highly streamlined.
Repair & Maintenance
Maintenance and repair are very important to the product cycle. A high-precision 3D measurement technology is a reliable guarantee for safety.
