1888 Press Release – American Hydroformers Enhances Production Capabilities by Implementing a New 3D Scanning and Probing Device Known as the Faro Edge Scan Arm HD.
Fort Wayne, IN – American Hydroformers (http://www.americanhydroformers.com/) recently obtains and implements a new Faro Edge Scan Arm HD that enables enhanced product development, inspection, and quality control. As a 3D scanning and probing device, the Faro Edge Scan Arm HD provides capabilities such as rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, 3D modeling and rapid point cloud collection and comparison. Ideal for scanning challenging materials, the Faro Edge Scan Arm HD also allows for contact and non-contact measurements.
• Rapid Scanning Speed
• High Definition Data
• Up to 2,000 Points per Scan Line
• Fast Frame Rates
• Scan Challenging Materials
• Highly Accurate and Repeatable
• Contact & Non-Contact Measurements
Acquiring this new Faro Edge Scan Arm HD will allow American Hydroformers to probe virtually any part or tube and collect all of the data needed to reproduce it. With up to 2,000 actual points per scan line, extreme resolution and high accuracy, we are able to reproduce even the most intricate parts and components. The actual setup of the scanning arm features an extra wide scan stripe as well as fast frame rates. This allows for increased productivity with the large coverage area and the reducing scanning times.
Autoform Hydro Simulation
In addition to the Faro Edge Scan Arm HD, American Hydroformers in-house capabilities also include the utilization of AutoForm Hydro simulation software as well as FEA simulations. Their team of engineers are trained and regularly updated on this software which provides a comprehensive understanding and analysis of the entire hydroforming process. By employing this software in-house and utilizing the simulation process, American Hydroformers supplies its customers with rapid verification, shorter development time, and improved process reliability.
• Easily Identify Forming Issues
• Rapid Tool Design
• Accurate Springback Simulation
• Quality & Cost Improvements
• Reduced Development Time
• Improved Reliability
• Lower Material & Production Costs
By enabling better price controls and reduced tooling expense, American Hydroformers provides a cost-effective source for part production. Unlike other metal forming techniques, hydroforming allows for increased part strength, lower part weight, and greater design flexibility, while also improving overall part quality.
