Customer needed post-assembly validation of fine wire configuration
Exact Metrology, working at the company’s Brookfield, Wisconsin location, has successfully used its ProCon industrial CT scanning technology to validate the position of a wire configuration in the bobbin of an electronic lock assembly for one of its customers.
As techician Sean Plastine explains, “A customer came to us to verify the position of a 0.008” diameter wire inside its electronic lock assembly. The position of the wire could not previously be verified while the components of the lock were being assembled. Inspection of the wire bobbin after assembly was also impossible.”
By using its CT scanning technology on the completed lock assembly, Exact technicians were able to determine the wire’s precise position without the need for disassembly or other compromise on the finished article. Any deviation of the wire’s nominal position could be noted, allowing for subsequent changes in the assembly protocol, as needed.
The CT scan clearly shows the path that the wire pair follows inside the lock assembly.
Plastine adds, “We are very excited by the possibilities of this technology, as it’s opening new doors for our contract services at many existing and many more new customers.”
Exact Metrology is an ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100 Certified Company.
