Have you ever had a component that is not working or fitting and cannot figure out why? Is the design wrong or the manufacturing? Or maybe you just need to make sure that a component in on spec BEFORE trying it, as the cost of a failure would be too high (damage, installation cost etc). Most quality control measures are not comprehensive enough because of limitation of the tools. An object is a 3 dimensional entity that cannot be measure with just 2 dimensional tools.
3D scanning is the only way to measure an object in its entirely for quality control purposes, then thanks to the software is possible to extrapolate virtually any measurement needed (axis, sections, features positions) and also the ability to compare to the CAD model, so you can clearly see where and how the part does not comply with the drawings.
A Colormap of the error will give you an overall quality of the part that will make the communication process with other department fast and easy (green is good, red and blue are bad). We can also provide sections, feature placement and dimensional errors, damage evaluation, wear and stress analysis and every dimensional measure you need.
