Welcome to Part 5 of our End-to-End Workflow Series, where we discuss our powerful 3D inspection solutions that help you take quick, reliable, and repeatable measurements to verify parts and assemblies.

Every manufacturer uses precision metrology tools for quality control – from hand tools like calipers to room-filling equipment like CMMs. The most innovative companies also employ non-contact 3D scanning as an important addition to their QC toolbox. 3D scanners come in all shapes and sizes and have matured into reliable, highly-accurate devices that can be used almost anywhere by almost anyone. Read our free ebook, “Is 3D Scanning Right for Your Inspection Needs?” to find out if this groundbreaking technology can help your business.

Just as 3D scanning hardware has advanced markedly, the software to make sense of all that data has too. 3D Systems’ Geomagic Control X inspection and metrology software makes it easy to use any 3D scanner to verify design intent and ensure quality outcomes to help businesses save time and money. 3D Systems even uses Geomagic Control X in-house as part of our own manufacturing process to ensure all incoming parts meet the specifications we require.

Ensuring the accuracy of a design or manufactured part is important throughout a product’s lifecycle, whether you’re qualifying its manufacturability, optimizing the fabrication and assembly processes, or monitoring performance in the field. With our 3D inspection solutions, our customers are able to scan virtually anything, anywhere to identify, understand, and address issues faster than ever.

Leading European low-cost airline easyJet estimates an approximate 80% time savings in aircraft damage assessments using Geomagic Control X, keeping planes safely in service. easyJet cites the software’s ease of training, quick workflows and comprehensiveness as leading advantages. Read the case study for easyJet’s full experience.

Geomagic Control X, along with a modern 3D scanner, makes it easy for more people to measure more parts in more places, which means reduced inspection bottlenecks, lower costs, and better product quality.

3D inspection can help you spread confidence in your manufacturing process. Talk to us to learn more. 

Stay Tuned: In our next post we’ll talk about workflow management solutions that enable productivity gains and lower operating costs with fleet monitoring and remote diagnostic applications in the 3D production environment.
