REVERSE ENGINEERING OF WORN OUT CAST PART AND REPLACE IN REAL TIME!!

REVERSE ENGINEERING OF WORN OUT CAST PART AND REPLACE IN REAL TIME!!

In the modern world lots of technologies have made way and growing in a tremendous manner but in 3D scanning instead gradual growth it grows in a rapid manner. 3D scanning and replacing a static part is possible but replacing a dynamic part takes a huge risk.

CUSTOMER REQUIREMENT IS?A 20 year old giant pump seems to be in a huge trouble, this pump working medium is blackish water which runs 16hrs/day result in the casing cover to wear out soon enough. This may cause the efficiency and life cycle of the pump to be reduced causing a huge loss to customer. Backup of Design data for future reference by reverse engineering. So we gave the reverse engineering with freescan X7 (3D Laser Scanner) and Geomagic design X (Reverse Engineering Software) as the solution.
WHY OUR EXPERTS CHOOSE FREESCAN X7?

• Handheld scanning which makes scanning ease for shop floor surrounding
• High accuracy of 0.03mm
• Volume precision of 0.02mm + 0.06mm/m.z

REVERSE ENGINEERING PROCESS

• As the first step a set of target stickers were fixed on the physical object for aligning purpose.

• 20 minutes to scan the complete object with Freescan X7
• 10 minutes for post processing has been done in Geomagic Wrap

• For parametric modeling considering fit and casting allowance design data has been made in 15 hrs. with the help of the Geomagic Design X

With the help of Freescan X7 (3D Laser Scanner), Geomagic Wrap (Mesh & Nurbs Creation Software) and Geomagic Design X (Reverse Engineering Software) a physical pump casing part has been converted to a Digitalized 3D drawing and in future a number of replica parts can be created by considering this drawing as a master piece. Hence Problem has been solved with ease of energy and pump has been renovated.
