Subcontract dimensional inspection using CMM measurement and non-contact scanning

There are times when bringing in a third party can be critical to maintaining productivity and quality. Maybe your in-house capacity is already stretched. Perhaps you don’t have the necessary equipment. You might need support with some of the more complex measuring tasks. Or possibly, you’re looking for a more thorough, independent inspection of your part.

At AB Technology, our experience and knowledge, and use of the latest measurement technology, enables us to offer dimensional inspection, quality consulting and independent verification services. During the past three decades, we have worked within a diverse range of industry sectors, on a multitude of processes and on all types of components, fixtures and assemblies. Quite simply, we can meet your most complex and demanding CMM inspection needs.

Whether it’s finished part measurements, in-process checks, statistical process control (SPC) studies or dimensional root cause analysis, our expert engineers will carry out quick and accurate inspections which will help you identify issues and determine opportunities for improvement. With their support, you will enhance your operations and drive productivity, including streamlining cycle-times, improving accuracy and optimising Product Introduction (NPI). All procedures are performed in our temperature-controlled laboratory, using ISO 10360 UKAS calibrated state-of-the-art precision measurement equipment. You can always be assured of quality, supported by fully traceable data for a positive impact on your business and its profitability.

Non-contact 3D scanning for dimensional inspection

Our non-contact scanning service provides a fast, accurate and cost-effective way to achieve full surface inspection of your component. From capturing 3D measurements from objects as small as a miniature medical device and as large as an gas turbine engine, through to delivering easy to understand inspection reports, our service can be tailored exactly to your needs.

Non-contact 3D scanning or digitising, is the process of capturing the shape, features and geometry of existing components through the use of photogrammetry or a laser scanner. Our 3D scanning tools removes the constraints of traditional contact measurement technology, making the scope of things we can scan virtually limitless.

Quality non-contact scanning for full surface inspection

3D scanning solutions are perfect for manufacturing companies that want to increase their productivity and understanding by fully digitising their component whilst maintaining the required accuracy.  Our agile and versatile 3D scanning service enables us to detect quality issues faster and with more detail than traditional 2D measurement, allowing you to make more informed decisions. With AB Technology at your side, we can help you to get to grips with digital measurement and automated quality control.

Our team of professionals can take the digital 3D scan data and transform it into output formats that are the foundation for design, documentation, visualization and analysis. They have worked across multiple industrial sectors and captured a vast array of components. We can recommend the best technologies to use and the most suitable reporting formats to meet your project’s requirements.
