Optimize Panel Assembly Using Virtual Gauges

March 8, 2018 - 11:00 am

Assemblies involving removable panels often have to meet strict esthetic and functional requirements.  An important consideration is evenly balancing the gap all around the perimeter and ensuring surface continuity.  As adjusting the panel placement affects all measurements, it is a true challenge to determine the best placement to meet all requirements.

In this live webinar, you will discover how PolyWorks|Inspector™ flush & gap gauges can be used not only to perform measurements, but also to find the optimal component placement in an assembly that ensures that gauge measurements remain within specified control tolerances.

In just 15 minutes, learn how to:

  • Define flush & gap gauges between components
  • Perform an alignment that minimizes gauge deviation to nominal values 
  • Apply alignment constraints that match your physical assembly in order to obtain a truly applicable solution
