We are taking hours/days out of the inspection process and increasing the measurement reliability with this new capability.

Under 2 micron accuracy is hard to visualize, but when you consider the diameter of a human hair is on average 20-40um, it helps to understand the accuracies that 3D Engineering Solutions can now inspect with the new ZEISS O-INSPECT 863 multi-sensor measuring systems.

3D Engineering Solutions is excited to work together with Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology, LLC.
A recent acquisition of their new O-INSPECT 863 multi-sensor measuring system (800mm x 600mm x 300mm measurement volume) enables 3DES to optimally measure each characteristic – optically (Discovery.V12 lens), by white light distance sensor (using the chromatic confocal principle) or by contact (VAST XXT scanning probe) compliant with ISO standards.

“This new system combined with a new and just released True 4th Axis Rotary Table allows for inspection of complex parts such as cooling holes in additive manufactured aerospace part details that take hours to inspect. This new technology allows 2 axis rotary feedback using integrated scales – a first for this type of equipment. We are taking hours/days out of the inspection process and increasing the measurement reliability with this new capability.” States Rob Glassburn, P.E., VP of Operations at 3D Engineering Solutions.

Tactile and optical measurement techniques each have their strengths, and there are certainly
measurement tasks that require only one of the two. But as a service provider,3D Engineering Solutions encounters customers with complex/demanding inspection requirements in all fields of industry, including aerospace, automotive, medical. By combining tactile and optical measurement and in some specialized cases a third technology, “chromatic white light sensor” this multifunction machine eliminates the need to move test pieces between different pieces of equipment which speeds up the measurement process, increases the effective accuracy and reduces labor costs. This fully calibrated multifunction system allows
inspection methods to complement one another, the combination will yield better data as the engineer can choose the most optimal method for each measurement.
