Join PQI’s Next Lunch & Learn About 3D Scanning Technologies

  Wednesday, March 29
  @PQI in Plymouth, MN
  10:30am – 1:30 pm
  Free lunch!

Laser scanners, structured light scanners, and CT scanners all deliver millions of points in a matter of minutes or even seconds. That’s the easy part. The hard part comes when we need to turn those millions of points into the answers we need to make decisions. Decisions to accept or reject a part (continue, modify, or stop a process). Those decisions most often depend on specific numbers: a diameter, a location, or a profile. Turning millions of points into meaningful answers is the next big breakthrough in dimensional metrology.

In this Lunch & Learn, we will present:

Small group demonstrations using 6 different scanning technologies to gather large point clouds:

The afternoon session will demonstrate how to turn those point clouds into the meaningful results we need for dimensional metrology decisions:

  1. Reverse engineering
  2. CAD-to-part comparisons
  3. Traditional plus/minus tolerancing
  4. Geometric dimensioning & tolerancing

The meaningful answers for a GD&T callout is most often decided by the single, most outlying point. When that single point is one of 20 million, new challenges are encountered.
