Freestate Rubber Gasket Diagnosis
Non-Contact Measurement is one of the strengths and selling points of 3D Scanning. We are able to measure with ease parts made of flexible material because we never have to physically touch the part. For example, rubber and cloth that can’t be probed by a CMM or hand tools can be scanned to acquire complete part form.
Below is an example of the need for non-contact measurement, as well as another interesting measurement capability only made possible by scanning. This rubber gasket is in a free state position.
Our client had a concern that new production parts had a large perimeter than old production parts. This was creating possible sealing issues.
