Most orthopedic companies have yet
to catch onto the successes now enjoyed by other precision
manufacturers, but are still wasting too much time and money on obsolete
20th Century inspection methods and equipment.
Whichever orthopedic companies are the earliest to adopt 21st Century
methods will gain enormous advantage and likely come to dominate this
industry, as we have seen in other industries.
Over the next few weeks, Level 3 Inspection will release a series of
educational emails meant to address a few of the cherished myths and
assumptions that have kept the industry in the comfortable past — till
"CMM's are the best inspection tool on the market!"
CMM’s are all too common in orthopedics ... but they're no longer the best option.
CMM's Mislead You!
CMM's accuracy depends on at least three factors — repeatable fixturing
properly used, diligent operator experience, and reliable sequence
programming — any of which can introduce or compound errors. Moreover,
CMM's generally collect far too few measurement points to provide
discernible surface profiles and are not generally easy to confidently
interpret. Instead of fully visualized surface profiles, CMM’s produce
tabulated data from a relatively small number of test points, from which
it’s impossible to reliably discern meaningful shapes and patterns.
3D surface digitization through White Light Scanning (WLS), when
correctly implemented, overcomes all of these problems. When followed by
Computer Aided Inspection (CAI), it offers a wide spectrum of tangible
advantages to any manufacturing process, including visualization of
entire part geometry for greater understanding, with accuracy,
comprehensiveness, automation, and speed.
White Light Scanning (WLS) Is Now Fast and Automated!
white light scanners have required years of experience in order to
yield useful data. Many precision manufacturers have spent substantial
capital on WLS equipment that does not provide the results,
understanding and confidence they sought to gain. Expertise in this new
field provides tremendous advantages.
With the SiS™, the CAI industry leaders at L3I have brought their
decades of application experience to bear on this problem. For the
first time, WLS and CAI reports containing thorough, accurate and useful
3D digitized surface plots can be generated in just minutes by an
in-house shop-floor technician with minimal training. The inspection
process variables have been systemized and automated, for speed and
