The value proposition
More and more frequently, we are asked to compare a 3D scan to a CAD model to check whether a fabricated part meets manufacturing tolerances. Also, especially in the Railway and Automotive industry we are asked to generate CAD from legacy parts or parts that are no longer manufactured.
Typically, these requirements from a customer occur once every few months. The important capability to have and to promote their own clients but not quite enough to justify employing someone internally. Even if they did employ someone internally, they would perform the inspection and reverse engineering work so infrequently that maintaining an adequate skill level and practice can be challenging especially if it only forms a part of their job.
This is where outsourcing the work to a provider such as ourselves makes sense. The onus would be on Central Scanning to maintain competence, ensure quick turnarounds and completion of work. This alleviates the ongoing costs you would have for an infrequent need.
Have an urgent requirement to have a part measured, validated or converting to CAD for re-manufacture? Contact us at 01527 558282 or email@example.com. We 3D scan, we 3D print, we 3D care.
