Tool and Die

Troubleshooting for quick and definitive solutions

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.

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

The Solutions

  • We provide reliable, high precision and independent inspection services to help quantify and understand the problem immediately
  • Comprehensive 3D comparisons to all common CAD formats to verify the overall geometry and GD&T requirements
  • Partial or complete 3D CAD creation from high precision, high density scan data
  • Full 3D measurement to understand tool wear and damage using worldclass analysis software
  • Windage and spring back calculations and modeling
  • NURBs surfacing to precisely capture fine tuning of mold and die surfaces including hand modifications

The Benefits

  • Save time and costs by using more thorough and more reliable 3D information
  • Solve problems quickly – our engineering grade 3D scanners capture millions of points in just seconds for accurate and efficient diagnostics
  • Proactive measurement – understand wear and other geometry issues so they can be understood and anticipated carefully to reduce downtime
  • Rest assured - We have been leaders in 3D technology and professional services for 19 years. We put our professionalism and depth of expertise into everything we do.
