Typically, the process of creating a product is design, then manufacture, then inspect. But in today’s always on manufacturing and design facilities, inspection happens at every level. For companies to design quality parts, more products need to be measured accurately across the company. For that to happen, technology needs to be accessible and innovative. 3D scanning is helping companies reach this goal by allowing inspection to happen at every level, even where it typically wouldn’t happen. Consider a design engineer—typically their job ends when the product hits the production floor. However, 3D scanning is expanding the design engineer’s role by allowing them to ensure the 3D product model is ready for quality inspection before the part goes to the manufacturer. Using 3D scanners, digital inspection software can help make the quality control process be more seamless, from design to production to inspection. This session will focus on the benefits and uses of 3D scanning for quality control, while also exploring how this will help businesses in fact-based decision making and involve total employee involvement for continuous improvement.
- Explain how 3D scanning is optimizing the quality control process
- Explain how employees at every level can contribute to quality control
- Demonstrate best practices for quality control using 3D scanning
