On-site measurement service for prototype parts using laser tracker for large volume parts or portable arm CMM with optional laser scanning for smaller parts. Point cloud generation and full part modelling is available. API measurement services is an ISO 17025 certified organization, accredited by A2LA. Our 3rd party prototype inspection reports provide the necessary confidence demanded by customers.
Accurate prototype measurement performs a critical role in new product development. API's experienced prototype measurement team are available to support your next project."Review your next prototype part measurement with the experts."
Prototype part validation is a cornerstone event in the design and manufacturing cycle of a new product introduction. Inaccurate prototype validation can cause delays and cost overruns in the development cycle. API measurement services can provide accurate and accredited prototype part validation and provide 3rd party vendor assessments. Contract the experienced API measurement services team to provide the assurances necessary to your prototyping process.
3D PRINTED PARTS
Rapid prototyping using 3D printing techniques reduces time to market for new product introductions by eliminating delays while awaiting tooling. The 3D printing process however can introduce signification errors into part geometry when compared to the original design intent. API measurement services can scan your 3D printed prototype parts allowing a full understanding of geometry deviations and provide a morphed CAD model to allow enhanced accuracy 3D part printing.
In today's global digital manufacturing economy many prototype parts are created from a reverse engineering process. Whether your requirement is a CAD model of a prototype part or designing a part within existing part constraints, API's laser scanning services can provide a digital point cloud of your part. With the detail and accuracy required by your project let API become your accredited external measurement services partner.
Many high volume manufacturing organizations run a pre-production series of parts through their manufacturing operation to validate tooling, equipment and process. API are experienced in performing real-time dimensional part validation and performing root-cause analysis through interrogation of the various production components. API technicians are available to support your needs on-site or at that of a 3rd party supplier.
