Reverse Engineering Services
Need to remake an old part that the OEM doesn't have a drawing for? Do you have a prototype but no drawings? What if your ISO system requires you to define the product you manufacture? Are you in the aftermarket parts business? Do you have a better product, but can not satisfy the requirements of the US Patent and Trademark Office? If so, we offer numerous ways to define your parts or product. Argus Engineering provides services from raw measurement data to parametric engineering drawings that correspond to a 3D CAD solid model!
CAD Solid Modeling is the process of building a three-dimensional representation of a part, product or object. It is used for a variety of purposes such as geometry visualization, creating parametric based drawings, reverse engineering, generating complex tool paths, programming CNC-CMM, 3D analyses, and Finite Element Analysis (FEA). We can make a parametric 3D solid model from your prototype or drawing, or design one based on your specified parameters.
The following are typical considerations and analysis, which may be required:
- Material analysis, such as hardness and material used. Substitute materials should be carefully analyzed to meet the environmental, fatigue and aesthetics properties.
- The original finishing and plating should be determined and duplicated or a suitable equivalent of better should specified.
- Surface roughness
- Electrical characteristics
- Detail dimensional variation analysis
The detail dimensional analysis will be conducted using at minimal calipers, however a more complete analysis my facilitated using a Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM), which can be used to digitize the entire part and the information can be utilized in computer-aided modeling.
