In this case study you will see how we realized and optimized a control equipment ready to be used in production lines.
- Design and realization of a control equipment in the shortest possible time
- Reduce the weight of the detail to improve handling and storage
- Reduce production costs
STEP 1: Reverse Engineering
The implementation process starts with the Reverse Engineering activity of the production tool in order to acquire the control spots ( conspicuity of the profiles, curvature, fixing spots).
Laser scan with NIKON arm
STEP 2: Design
The development of the control jig was engineered by our technical staff optimizing its design according to the customer’s needs and the constructive process.
Control template CAD design
STEP 3: Control jig production
Per l’esecuzione della dima abbiamo utilizzato la tecnologia FDM realizzando le parti in ASA.
For the execution of the control jig we used FDM technology, realizing the parts with ASA.
The choice of FDM process (Fused Deposition Modeling) and ASA material, using the lightened construction modality, guarantees excellent dimensional stability, great torsion resistance of the detail, good resistance to impacts and UV rays.
The internal production systems are able to produce parts up to 900x600x900 mm allowing to realize monolithic parts.
Monolithic details realized with Fortus 900 (900x600x900mm)
Lightened construction modality, parameterizes according to the functional needs of the parts and allows material (weight) and time per machine saving, optimizing production costs.

STEP 4: ASSEMBLY
The commissioned project included the supply and the testing of the jig .
After the production of the designed parts we assembled the template with the necessary standards (columns, axle boxes, fixing systems).

STEP 5: TESTING AND DIMENSIONAL CONTROL
The final phase of the process is the dimensional check and the testing.
The equipment was dimensionally certified through laser inspection and successively tested.
Once get through the strict quality controls, the jig was identify with labeling and Serial Number.
