Learn how to create complete measurement sequences up to 10 times faster, and integrate your in-house CNC CMM measurement techniques as native PolyWorks|Inspector™ measurement methods, and more.
PolyWorks® Collaborative Suite 2019
Discover how PolyWorks® Collaborative Suite 2019 digitally interconnects all teams involved in 3D measurement processes for product development. Learn how to efficiently store and share PolyWorks inspection and reverse-engineering projects with PolyWorks|DataLoop™ in real time; see how PolyWorks|PMI+Loop™ facilitates collaborative measurement planning processes between the design, manufacturing, and measurement teams; and find out how PolyWorks|ReportLoop™ digitally interconnects the PolyWorks Metrology Suite to Microsoft Excel to inject smart 3D inspection data within your corporate inspection reports.
CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORIES
New Capability Creation and Analysis Automation Through PolyWorks Expandability Tools
Awad El-mousa, senior Applications Engineer with the Manufacturing Technologies Group at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, explains how he replaced the gap gun used to inspect seams on outer doors and panels of aircraft as well as the hand or eye validation of paint coatings with inspection methods that are more reliable, repeatable, and accurate. With the help of PolyWorks® automation tools, he conceived a workflow that involved scanning the parts to inspect as well as tools that can obtain CAD models and check information from their cloud, automatically create PolyWorks® projects and generate reports, then return trustworthy results to decision makers.
Reducing Modular LNG Plant Installation Time with PolyWorks & Laser Trackers
Andrew Exline, Project Engineer at Dimensional Engineering, reveals how his team helped deliver 10 new modular liquefaction plants at the Elba Island natural gas export facility ahead of time by dramatically reducing the build time from 3 months to 3 weeks. Combining PolyWorks|Inspector™ with laser trackers, they inspected and virtually assembled the prefabricated liquefaction modules with the CAD models of the assembly to identify fabrication errors, and automated the calculation of corrections to provide repair instructions before the modules were delivered to the site owner.
Enhancing Efficiency of Metrology with Automation
Brian Brown, the Director of the Robotics and Automation Laboratory at the National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) at Wichita State University, describes how to automate simple to complex 3D inspection processes using tools that were not originally conceived to work together but can in fact be assembled as complete systems. He demystifies the myriad of ways to automatically control robots and other devices using programmable controllers (PLCs), PolyWorks® automation tools, vendor control interfaces, and more.
