Reverse engineering

 

  • If no CAD data is available we can recreate files from:
    • 2D drawings.
    • Existing parts using manual measurements (for simple geometry with low tolerance).
    • Existing parts using 3D scan data (for complex or free form geometry with a fine tolerance).
  • Files or drawings will then be sent back to the customer for verification.

We can create both complex and simple data.

CAD Development

 

  • CAD preparation
    • Import and repair data
    • Scale added.Thickness analysis.
    • Draft added.
    • Extract cores.
    • Create split-line / parting surface.
  • Running system design
    • Geometry is analysed by experienced technicians.
    • Feeders and in-gates are added where porosity is predicted.
    • Sprues and runner bars are then added where appropriate.
  • Flow and solidification simulation
    • A quick solidification simulation is then run using specialist software. This highlights areas where porosity is predicted.
    • If results show a casting free from porosity a full flow and solidification simulation will be run at a higher resolution for more accurate results.
    • If defects are found at either stage the running systems are modified and resubmitted until a porosity free solution is found.
  • Quality assurance
    • All castings are visually inspected and endoscoped where applicable but further checks are also available:
      • CMM dimensional analysis
      • Hardness testing
      • Material & chemical certification
      • Pressure testing
      • X-ray

Our team of designers provide a full CAD development service.
