VMR digitizes the QA with a 3D scanner from Zeiss

With our new system for 3D digitization from Zeiss, we are expanding our options in quality assurance. The Zeiss Comet, a compact 3D scanner, scans components quickly and accurately using strip light projection. The new technology has the following advantages for you: You gain time thanks to quick and clear QA results. From 3D printing to injection molding.

The process works as follows - The 3D sensor detects the component we have manufactured. The STL data obtained in this way are superimposed on the original 3D model. A target / actual comparison is created, which we can display as a false color comparison. Deviations are recognizable at a glance and can also be dimensioned.

This is particularly suitable for components that cannot be measured tactilely or only with difficulty. This includes additively manufactured components that differ from conventional components due to their complex geometry. With a 3D scan with a false color comparison and measurement report, you can be sure that our components will meet your requirements.

We see the greatest potential of the technology in our toolmaking with subsequent injection molding production. Parts at risk of warpage can be scanned with little effort as part of an initial sample and any correction deviations analyzed. Since we have all the necessary resources in-house, tool corrections can be carried out quickly and in a targeted manner. So that your planning in terms of time and costs is not thrown off track.

Last but not least, the 3D sensor can also be used for reverse engineering. An already existing component, e.g. for a vehicle restoration, is scanned and the data obtained is then converted into a 3D model. The resulting STEP file can then be further processed or production can be started directly.

Quality - at VMR not just a word, but a promise. Talk to your contact person about your requirements.
