R & D teams realize immediate benefits as they don't need to start the design process from scratch, as 3D laser scanning will provide them with an instant 3D image that they can begin to work with as soon as we produced it.
Salem, NH (PRWEB) October 6, 2009
A.P. Extrusion (http://www.apextrusion.com), a leading custom tubing manufacturer located in Salem, New Hampshire, recently announced the expansion of its in-house capabilities effectively immediately with the addition of 3D Scanning and Imaging services. This new service provides customers with the unique opportunity to re-design their products by creating a 3D model scan which converts the information into digital 3D data.
With 3D object scanning, A.P. Extrusion can create a 3D image quickly and inexpensively, by extracting usable data from the actual product. This provides designers and engineers with documentation necessary to effectively evaluate a product in-depth for purposes of quality inspection, re-design, and rapid prototyping--to name only a few of the benefits of having a 3D scan produced.
"The biggest benefit of 3D scanning for our customers is that design teams can detect areas of poor product performance, of course, but it also provides them the opportunity to enhance a product design of an outdated model, or to reproduced a part that doesn't have CAD prints or where product documentation is not available," explains John Brusseau, President of A.P. Extrusion. "R & D teams realize immediate benefits as they don't need to start the design process from scratch, as 3D laser scanning will provide them with an instant 3D image that they can begin to work with as soon as we produced it."
3D model scanning is proving to be very useful to the medical and electronics industries as the advanced technology of this type of 3D scanning allows for accurate measuring of an object that was often miscalculated with conventional measuring equipment. The speed and accuracy in creating a 3D laser image provides exceptional quality data that improves the entire design process that in the end saves a company both time and money.
