The 42nd annual SHOT Show will take place between January 21 and 24, 2020 at the Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is the largest trade show for target shooting, hunting, outdoor and law enforcement products. Over four days, the show generally attracts over 60,000 industry professionals and hosts more than 1,600 exhibiting companies.
Exact Metrology will be exhibiting at the upcoming show. Their main technologies featured will be CT scanning, Geomagic Design X and Polyworks Inspector™ software. In addition, Exact Metrology will discuss structured light. According to Jason Kleinhenz, an engineer and trainer at the company, “CT scanning in combination with Design X (for reverse engineering ) and/or Polyworks (for quality inspection) creates opportunities for reverse engineering and quality inspection of internal components, very accurately, not possible through any other tool. Structured light systems allow highly accurate 3D data collection via line-of-sight.”
CT scanners permit the exploration of the interior of parts without any harm or destruction to the parts themselves. This technology takes multiple readings from various angles and converts the CT grey scales images into voxel-based 3D point clouds. After the CT scanner generates the point cloud data, Exact Metrology generates a CAD-to-part comparison map, dimension the part or reverse engineer it.
Geomagic Design X allows provides an easy path from creating editable, feature-based CAD models from a 3D scanner to integrating them into existing engineering design workflow. Furthermore, the software allows users to re-use existing designs without having to manually update old drawings or re-measure and rebuild a model in CAD. Finally, Geomagic Design X is easy to learn and use.
Polyworks Inspector™ uses high-density point clouds and contract-probe datasets to control the quality of parts and tools at every manufacturing process phase. Using this software, users can acquire and control tool and parts dimensions, prevent manufacturing and assembly issues, guide assembly building and oversee the quality of assembled products.
Structured light, commonly known as blue light scanning, describes the use of 3D light-based scanners. Generally, structured light-based scanners offer the most accurate and highest resolution data. “Blue” refers to the color of the LED bulb in the projector.
Josh Schradin and John Legleu from Exact Metrology, will be there to answer any questions attendees may have. Schradin is head of the CT department, while Legleu is a technical salesperson.
