Using 3D Imaging to Help Troubleshoot for Quick and Definitive Solutions

Applied Precision’s 3D Experts have industry leading knowledge and tools that provide unmatched accuracy in part inspection. Our 3D technologies and expertise can help you diagnose and resolve tooling design, wear and operational issues with the most advanced high precision 3D metrology. It can also assist in refining processes and equipment already established to improve efficiency and save you money.

Common Challenges

  • Part distortion such as spring back, warp and irregular shrink
  • Undocumented tooling changes
  • Existing CAD is suspect or possibly not current Need for comprehensive verification of part geometry in the tool
  • Critical reference geometry needed for urgent tooling repairs Parting surfaces or pinch off damage
  • Tool wear or damage not fully known
  • Missing or incomplete 2D or 3D CAD data
