In-house laser scanning of cast features

Bremer Manufacturing utilizes a Romer AbsoluteArm with laser scanning capabilities to dimensionally check all cast surfaces of parts. The Romer laser scanning system generates a complete, accurate dimensional image of casting features and allows this data to be overlaid onto a step file of the 3D CAD part model, to provide a graphical output of the difference between the theoretical nominal and the actual part. Tabular data describing the deviation from nominal is also available. When sampling new patterns, a part from each tooling cavity is scanned, and the Romer laser scanning capabilities can also be used to verify pattern dimensions and wear.
