              Why SYC Uses 3D Scanner

              SYC emphasizes on process improvement and product development. In 2015, SYC evalutes 3D equpments to our manufacturing enterprise. In addition to the arm-type 3D scanner, we also purchased Breuckmann 3D scanner and Stratasys 3D printer.


              3 Situations for SYC to Use 3D Scanner

              1) before the official production; 

              2) when the customer reports a problem; 

              3) when the two pieces need to be compared.

              3 Advantages of 3D Scanner

              Efficiency: collect a piece’s information in 20-30 minutes

              Accuracy: be better than traditional drawing cycle and reduce labor cost

              Archive: keep data records for future use

              Through comparing scan date with CAD data to check the dimensional error of each part,

              SYC quickly interprets the data for product testing and customer response.


              How SYC Uses 3D Scanner

              Before Using 3D Scanner

              Start the OPTOCAT software

              Warm up the 3D scanner

              Paint white matt on the surface of the scanned object

              Correct screen and lens

              Steps to Use 3D Scanner

              Place the scanned object with white matt in a black box

              Confirm the placement  and align the laser point to the position

              After completing the first scan, change the placement angle (note to align the laser point)

              After completing the second scan, compare two scan results  (at least insert 3 points) and spin up the particular green or red position

              Continue the steps until the complete 3D graphic is obtained

              Combine all the data and export the STL file format

              Check archive, and confirm with the inspector of the quality assurance
