NVision's "Modern Reverse Engineering of 3 D Geometry" featured in Quality Magazine

 

Overview: The purposes for reverse engineering are many and varied, ranging from the need to reproduce an existing product lacking CAD documentation to acquiring sensitive information to determine possible patent infringement.

 

(May 2014) - Many ideas can spring to mind when one hears the term reverse engineering. Some think of it as a form of corporate espionage, a means to copy competitors’ parts, others regard it primarily in terms of their own immediate industrial needs, as in the case of an electronics manufacturer using reverse engineering to replicate printed circuit boards (PCBs). However, the purposes for reverse engineering are many and varied, ranging from the need to reproduce an existing product lacking CAD documentation, which we discuss later, to acquiring sensitive information to determine possible patent infringement.

HandHeld Scanner Helps Ensure Top Quality Production of Aluminum Die Castings for LED Lamps

 

(Coppell, TX; May 2013) - Lighting Science® uses the HandHeld laser scanner from NVision to ensure the dimensional integrity of the extremely complicated castings it purchases and uses in its roadway light emitting diode (LED) fixtures. In the past, it was difficult to inspect the castings because their geometry was too complex for gauges and blocks and they would have taken a long time to program and inspect on a coordinate measuring machine (CMM).
