Inspection/Measurement – Will This Part Clean Up?

By Trevor Murcko Manufacturers who supply or receive pre-machined manufactured components, including molds, often ask, “Will this part clean up?” Oftentimes, this question of part clean-up can make or break an order, a job or a delivery schedule, and although the respondent can vary from a supplier to the downstream customer or both, the question [...]

3D Manufacturing Technologies Seminar Recap

Additive manufacturing has increasingly become a topic of interest in the manufacturing sector and for good reason. Implementing 3D scanning and 3D printing provides several alternative solutions that cannot be as easily accomplished using conventional methods. The full 3D scan to 3D print workflow and the benefits of incorporating 3D technology were further explored during the “3D Manufacturing Technologies Seminar” hosted by Modern Tech in Orlando, FL on Thursday, February 12. […]

Easy Steps to Standardize an H-Point Program

Working for FARO (specifically in the Detroit area), I noticed that several companies are interested in creating and running a program to successfully check H-points (or Hip Points) on seats. The location of the H-Point allows automotive designers to improve seating comfort predicting where the average occupant sits relative to the top of the car or getting in/out of the car. Most seats are checked with a standardized adjustable dummy (Oscar) designed to represent the most common occupants. […]
