Reverse Engineering

Reverse engineering is becoming a more popular method of creating a 3D model of a part without existing CAD files. Reverse engineering reconstructs classic designs and implements new ones. It can generate lost or absent design documentation and update or create as-built documentation.

Using non-contact 3D laser scanning, FARO®’s portable CMM and 3D documentation solutions integrate 3D modeling processes into a single step. They can provide virtual simulations of automotive interiors, support rapid prototyping in plastics manufacturing and inspect composite surfaces in aerospace assembly.

Trinity Forge Uses a Forward-Thinking Approach to an Ancient Process

Trinity Forge saw FARO’s pricing, the equipment’s ease-of-use, and the quality of the tool itself as their deciding factors. Within two months, they were at full steam and scanning, modeling scans, and reverse engineering dies and parts for maintenance. “The speed at which we can operate is a great value to us. Several new dies from the CNCs can be scanned in the morning and approved in the afternoon. Reverse engineering of parts, maintenance of parts, or die models are all a snap using FARO.”

“Implementing the FaroArm and Verisurf CAD production and inspection systems has been a very wise move for us,” said Quality Assurance Manager Richard Hansen. “The FaroArm and Verisurf software offers us a total reverse engineering, manufacturing and inspection solution and has given us a new degree of accuracy, consistency, and credibility in the quality of all of our products.”

Lafayette Steel and Aluminum Increases Process Capability with the FaroArm

The combination of versatility and accuracy in the FaroArm gives Lafayette a reliable measurement system that can be used on their complete range of products. The ability to highlight measurement variation and product consistency that was not previously understood has allowed Lafayette to improve their processes and capabilities and reduce their amount of scrap.

Debco Tool & Die Cuts Inspection Time in Half with the FARO Laser ScanArm®

For Debco Tool & Die, one clear advantage of the FARO Laser ScanArm is its ability to dramatically reduce the length of their quality assurance process. “We’ve cut our inspection time by 50-percent and saved roughly $75,000 to $100,000 by using FARO.”
