What makes aerospace stand out from the other manufacturing industries that we serve is the volume of 3D scanning and large-scale metrology that is performed. Aerospace was an early adopter of 3D scanners, PCMMs, and laser trackers, and it continues be a top consumer of scanning data.
We have worked with engine manufacturers, airframe manufacturers, sub-assembly suppliers and metal casting foundries. Through these projects, we have seen, first hand, that this one industry uses the full spectrum of metrology products to address the complete range of applications.
When called out to the assembly area or the tarmac, we come armed with an array of scanning and digitizing tools. For a single project, we may have to zero in on a small detail within the cockpit while capturing the full aircraft from nose to tail. For aerospace, we have done it all…everything from reverse engineering of a flight control to 100% capture of an entire fighter aircraft. And we have done this work within the stringent specifications for aerospace applications.
“Exact Metrology got the job because if its unique experience in long-range and short-range scanning. It also helped that Exact metrology could react right away.”
