- Pierre Aubrey, President, ShapeGrabber
Organizations that successfully weather tough economic times are those that are able to do more with less – to stay productive and competitive even while access to human and financial resources tightens. Automation can be key for companies seeking greater efficiencies and ShapeGrabber customers have a real advantage.
3D scanners enable manufacturers to ensure high-quality production of parts without the long delays that single-point inspection systems require. Fast and easy to use automated industrial 3D scanners like ShapeGrabber`s do not require specialized CAD expertise. They also enable quality control to be performed on tough parts: those with complex shapes, compound curves, and soft materials.
So, even with fewer resources to rely on, a manufacturer using a 3D scanner can continue to produce high-quality parts with proof of conformance to spec, and can provide its customers with competitive speed and quality.
3D scanners are often used to complement traditional complex coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) by providing more affordable and less cumbersome options for many inspection and quality control jobs. While CMMs excel at single point accuracy, 3D scanners are faster, measure the complete part, and can deal with complex shapes without the need for expensive fixturing.
As your organization seeks greater efficiencies and a competitive edge to weather the current economic storm, consider how an industrial 3D laser scanner can give you the advantage.
