Industrial 3D Scanning Services

One of the major industrial inspection services offered by our experts involves 3D scanning with blue light technology. With this high precision 3D technology, we can convert the surface shape of the sample into a 3D representation. Blue light 3D scanning is commonly used for benchmark research of R&D and dimension inspection of quality assurance.

This is a key test for quality assurance and product development because it allows for the inspection of a product without compromising an object’s structural integrity. In other words, the user can see inside an object without causing damage to the object or individual components.

3D Scanning at JTL America

The high resolution 3D scanning technology used by our engineers is very versatile and has many applications. For instance, we have the ability to scan very small objects (such as the size of a penny) to extra-large objects (such as door trims).

Our 3D scanning technology measures millions points per single scan and uses advanced measuring and projection techniques to produce high quality data and precision accuracy for full-object dimensional analysis. This includes various part sizes, surfaces, finishes, and geometries. The data gathered from 3D scanning can be exported as STL file suitable for a first article inspection (FAI). Furthermore, the scanning technology we use is portable; thus, if the objects are large, it’s possible to perform these inspections on-site.

3D Scanning Uses
