Why SYC Uses 3D Scanner

SYC emphasizes on process improvement and product development. In 2015, SYC evalutes 3D equpments to our manufacturing enterprise. In addition to the arm-type 3D scanner, we also purchased Breuckmann 3D scanner and Stratasys 3D printer.


3 Situations for SYC to Use 3D Scanner

1) before the official production; 

2) when the customer reports a problem; 

3) when the two pieces need to be compared.

3 Advantages of 3D Scanner

Efficiency: collect a piece’s information in 20-30 minutes

Accuracy: be better than traditional drawing cycle and reduce labor cost

Archive: keep data records for future use

Through comparing scan date with CAD data to check the dimensional error of each part,

SYC quickly interprets the data for product testing and customer response.


How SYC Uses 3D Scanner

Before Using 3D Scanner

Start the OPTOCAT software

Warm up the 3D scanner

Paint white matt on the surface of the scanned object

Correct screen and lens

Steps to Use 3D Scanner

Place the scanned object with white matt in a black box

Confirm the placement  and align the laser point to the position

After completing the first scan, change the placement angle (note to align the laser point)

After completing the second scan, compare two scan results  (at least insert 3 points) and spin up the particular green or red position

Continue the steps until the complete 3D graphic is obtained

Combine all the data and export the STL file format

Check archive, and confirm with the inspector of the quality assurance
