Dimensional Inspection

Accuracy is a concern no matter what your industry. Our clients rely on advanced solutions in measurement for industrial-oriented applications. Cutting-edge measurement technologies of varying work volume sizes using in-house or portable measurement solutions.

Our skilled engineers are able to interpret measurement accuracies of raw 3D scanned or CMM data captured by the most current technologies used. Traceable to recognized national and international standards, the raw data measured is processed for multiple applications varying from research laboratories to industrial tasks; selected examples include aircraft manufacturing, reverse engineering, drift monitoring, automobile manufacturing from body-in-white inspection to auto bodies and other components, rapid prototyping, inspection and quality control, statistical sampling, alignment services, metals production, composite products, industrial tool building, verification and certification.

We provide a wide range of high-accuracy measurement solutions from design evaluation of new product development design, manufacturing, tool verification/certification to surface profile inspection. Using CAD models and blue prints to communicate the geometry of a part and using knowledge of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (ISO and ASME standards) we develop solutions on-site or cost effective alternative in-house inspection solutions which reduce production costs and improve inspection throughput.

Equipment and reports are traceable to the National Institute of Standards & Technology. ECM retains calibration records for equipment which are available to the client for review. Outside calibration services are used for equipment maintenance.

Reverse Engineering

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our Reverse Engineering Services offer solutions to extract design and recreate physical aesthetics from existing objects to construct CAD ready files that are suitable for downstream work in the CAD environment of choice.

Reverse engineering has assumed an increasingly important role in manufacturing. Traditionally the reverse engineering process has been perceived as time-consuming and cost ineffective. This is no longer the situation. Our reverse engineering services incorporate best-in-class proven technologies delivering advanced data collection techniques and speed to link the physical to the digital world. Our services are based on measurements captured with proven techniques and technologies that provide required accuracy and time compression, extensive engineering knowledge and experience in constructing high quality CAD models into file formats usable in:

  • Product Engineering/Development
  • Finite Element Analysis
  • Rapid Prototyping
  • CNC Tool Path Development
  • Metrology/Quality Inspection
  • Manufacturing processes employing modern methodologies (e.g. 3D CAD, CAM, and CAE)

Laser Scanning

ECM Laser Scanning Service offer advanced data collection techniques for modeling small to large objects, from machined parts to whole factories. The laser scanner captures highly accurate 3D information in the form of a dense point cloud mapping an object or environment of varying geometric complexity.

Using industry standard file formats, the raw data can be exported into CAD software for 3D CAD model generation.
