tooling die inspectionBuilding any type of die weather it’s a stamping, draw, blanking, or progressive can be a complicated machining process. Most dies must be precision ground, milled and wire or CNC sinker EDMd. There are several components to a die set that includes the die block, punches /plate, and stripper plate. All these components must fit together in order for the die to work. Before the die goes into production, it should be inspected and compared to its CAD file. Inspecting a die set prior to a production run and sending it to a metrology lab like Precision Technologies, can assure that your die will produce parts accurately during the production run. In the event the parts of the die are not within specs, actions can be taken to correct the issue before the stamping process takes place. This will prevent the chances of scrapped parts being stamped. Once the die has been inspected, the first parts can also be inspected to further ensure part accuracy. This is known as 1st article inspection which not only measures the parts but provides a measurement report for a given manufacturing process. Additionally for the automotive supply chain, inspecting first part run offs creates confidence for the suppliers and production processes. This process is know as production part approval process (PPAP).

Part inspection and calibration issues can affect a company’s bottom line. Inspection of tools and product parts reduces costly redesigns and adjustments. Let Precision Technologies take away your worries with our precision die inspection services, conducted by qualified staff in our environmentally-controlled facility.

3D Reverse Engineering Laser ScanningCreating 3D models for production based on traditional measuring techniques to reverse engineer such parts can be inaccurate, and very frustrating. Often, a company will find that some of its still-utilized but older products or parts need replacing or updating but no reliable CAD drawings exist. Using traditional measuring techniques to reverse engineer such parts can also be expensive and time consuming, if not downright impossible. Precision Technologies offers modern 3D reverse engineering services as an alternative way to obtain a CAD model from an already-existing product, part, or other object. 

Utilizing our laser 3D scanning, PTI's experienced staff can quickly gather the data needed to create such a digital CAD model, allowing you to match and recreate your original product or part, in its same exact design. We can send the file in a format of your choosing which can be used for inspection, creating a CNC tool past, 3D printing and mold making.

3D ScannerIf your manufactured parts are fragile or too sensitive to touch with a measuring tool, they require non-contact inspection services. Common contact devices such as micrometers and vernier callipers touch the surface in order to determine the dimensions. By touching the fragile part, they can damage it or make the measurement unreliable because of the part’s texture. Laser scanners, shadowgraph or profile projectors are ideal to measure sensitive parts. Non contact measurement devices can get the measurements without touching the surface. If the surface gets marked distorts with pressure, a non contact inspection process ensures the continued quality inspection at every point. Laser scanners which use laser light offer additional advantages. They can be attached to a CMM or come as a portable device. They easy to operate and the measurements are stored into a computer into a computer which speeds up the process.

At Precision Technologies, we perform reliable and accurate non-contact measuring services. For a quote on our non contact measuring services, click here or call Precision Technologies Inc at 419-683-8029.

Aluminum DieCasting CMM InspectionIf you're a diecasting company, it's important to know that your molds and parts are coming out within tolerance. Close tolerance die cast parts are used in an array of industries including automotive, aerospace, medical and energy. No die cast shop wants to hear their parts have been rejected. Die cast shops can inspect the parts themselves but this requires investments in metrology equipment, measuring processes and the people to do it.

3rd party CMM inspection shops like Precision Technologies, can assure your parts are measured with the highest level of precision. Our measuring services include certification papers guaranteed to comply with all customer requirements. PTI will track all measurements and send your company a detailed report on the inspection process.

jigs fixuresThe words fixtures and jigs are common terms used in machine shops. Although both are used as tools to mass-produce parts, they have two distinct functions.

Fixtures are used to hold work pieces in at specific location. For example when parts are machined on a machining center or wire EDM, they are clamped into a fixture which reduces the amount of set up time. This eliminates set up errors and brings down  production cost. As all machine shops owners are aware of, the best machine tool is one that is making parts and not sitting idle. Fixtures need to be heavy and rigid, and machined with precision in order to have consistent results.

A jig is a tool that guides another tool in order to improve the accuracy of the part during machining. Often a jig is used in drilling, boring, and tapping operations so the drill doesn’t wobble or stray away from the location where it’s suppose to be. They are also used to make sure a part is drilled to a specified depth without the need constantly check and re-drill if needed.

At Precision Technologies, we specialize in the design and manufacturing of custom jigs and fixtures. Since we incorporate the latest machine tool technology and employ experienced machinist, we can ensure your jigs and fixtures will have the accuracy that will meet your expectations. We design and build the following types of fixtures and jigs: welding & assembly fixtures, checking fixtures, work holding fixtures and welding/ assembly fixtures.

Wire EDMing is considered a high precision machining method. Recently we purchased a wire EDM to machine our product tooling, fixtures and gauges. Wire EDMs don’t make chips, they burn away metal with a continual feed of electrically charged brass wire that vaporizes the conductive material regardless of its hardness. There’s no tool force on the wire because the wire never touches the workpiece.
