Data Integrity: A Comparison of Point Cloud and Discrete Measurement Data


Duration:30 minutes


Metrology is evolving rapidly with non-contact techniques such as 3D scanning or vision-based technologies. These techniques not only help build out digital twins of parts, but also enable production throughput. But, when compared to tactile or discrete measurements, are these point clouds from digital twins accurate? In this webinar, experts will explore an innovative, high-speed, non-contact technology that enables three-dimensional accuracy across all data points in a digital twin and contrast this technology with traditional measurement methods such as a CMM.

• Digital twin is fast becoming a cornerstone of manufacturing. But, how accurate are digital twins?
• Tactile measurements have long been relied upon by quality professionals. They are accurate, but they are slow, requiring product sampling. And, manufacturers often require multiple systems to perform advanced metrology functions. Could multiple technologies be integrated into one system without compromising data integrity?
• Non-contact measurement systems are making their presence felt on the production floor. What impact do they have on product quality and production throughput?
