_24A7485Product demonstrations and technical presentations on 3D printing & CT scanning engage a large audience

On June 23, 2016, Exact Metrology held an open house at their Brookfield, Wisconsin location, showcasing its newest products in 3D printing and CT scanning equipment. The event was attended by a large number of people from several Midwestern states and a diverse range of business sectors, including manufacturing companies, civil engineering firms, municipalities, local artists and art museums.

Hosted by Dean Solberg, Exact Metrology co-president, the day included product demonstrations featuring the newest technology in 3D & CT scanners from Exact Metrology engineering specialists. Ten stations were set up throughout the facility, each demonstrating equipment from the top names in the industry and most of the equipment was available for hands-on use by the attendees. Products included the Romer measurement and scanning arm, Hexagon Q Flash, Leica tracker, Surphasers, ATOS II Blue Light Scanner, Artec Space Spider and Exact Metrology’s newest acquisition, the ProCon Compact CT scanner. Several attendees brought their own parts and had them scanned onsite, then 3D printed.

Running simultaneously throughout the day were several breakout sessions on: 3D systems (Geomagic Design X/Geomagic for Solidwork) presented by Mike Tsang; 3D Software Innovmetric (Polyworks) by Julien Thibodeau Gagne; and 3D printing by Mastergraphics demonstrated by Kevin Carr.

_24A7515An especially impressive product demonstration included scanning a single grain of salt with the ProCon CT scanner. The scan picked up details as minute as the ridges in the salt grain, illustrating the scanner’s ability to capture the most precise details inside and out. CT scanning currently used by Exact technicians to examine injection molded parts, castings and forgings, evaluating porosity, grain structure, filament distribution etc. Data can be instantly compared to CAD files in the point cloud for assessment.

­­­­These high-definition CT imaging devices were, until recently, only available for use in the medical field. They now serve a wide range of product applications, including but not limited to, industrial, manufacturing & construction, power generation/nuclear, medical, aerospace and the arts, the latter already seeing applications in the detection of forgeries and sculpture structural integrity, as examples.

Exact Metrology offers a complete line of portable scanning and measurement technologies as well as contract measurement for 3D laser scanning services, reverse engineering services, non-contact inspection, metrology services and 3D digitizing. The company’s newest equipment includes a GE CT Scanner at its Cincinnati location, the first in America being used for industrial metrology rather than medical testing. Exact sells and rents metrology equipment solutions, in addition to providing testing as a service and application software training.

Services on display at the Brookfield open house included 3D scanning, reverse engineering, quality inspection, instant scan-to-CAD comparison and a full suite of PolyWorks software solutions. Equipment shown at the event included Aicon 3D systems, Breuckmann 3D scanners, Leica Geosystems, Romer and Hexagon brands of scanning devices and related hardware, all of which were available for hands-on use by event attendees.

A new product of great interest to attendees was the Breuckmann steroScan, a flexible scanning system for precise 3D digitization and metrology. Applications for this product include quality inspection, reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, deformation analysis and digital documentation. Because of the adjustable focal length of the scanner, products from small components up to large sections of automotive and aircraft parts can be scanned with high resolution and accuracy. Breuckmann is a company of Aicon 3D Systems.

During the event, technical presentations were made by Aicon, PolyWorks by InnovMetric and Exact personnel on the newest advancements in 3D scanning technologies. The presentations were given to a “full house” of interested attendees.

As Dean Solberg commented, “We seek to find the right combination of equipment and services to suit the applications and challenges presented by our customers. In some cases, it’s a matter of matching the right standard equipment to the job, while at other times we bring custom solutions and services to our customers, whether they buy, lease, rent or simply use our services to achieve the desired results on projects.” Solberg credited his staff of metrology engineers, technicians and customer service personnel for their hard work, dedication and adaptability in seeking their correct solution to all customer challenges.
