1）On-line measurement: Unlike traditional methods, portable 3D measurement arm can be used in field measurement and performs an on-line dimensional inspection.
2）Design improvement: With its computer-aided inspection function, it can quickly identify deviations from the product with the original design so as to improve the design and crafts.
3）Rapid prototyping: Based on the existing products or partly using reverse method to achieve the design scheme.
4）Parts archiving: For those parts whose prototypes or drawings do not exist, we can archive them for future use.
IN-PROCESS INSPECTION ON THE SHOP FLOOR
1）On-site measurement: Without any special requirements for environments, it can be used on the shop floor to promptly detect product quality issues such as deformation, abrasion, etc. so as to reduce the rejection rate.
2）Complex workpiece inspection: In-progress inspection for different sizes of jigs and fixtures, tooling, platforms, automotive interior parts, pipe fittings, etc.
3）Online inspection: Different from traditional methods, PMT arm can achieve on-line or on-machine inspection with great flexibility and high performance at a great value in the course of production.
MANAGEMENT OPTIMIZATION & RISK CONTROL
1）Production process optimization: Obtain data by fully inspecting products in-process to help make management decisions scientifically.
2）Risk control: Through inspecting products directly on or at the machine producing them which helps to detect issues like deformation, abrasion, and mould and production crafts can be adjusted timely to reduce the risk of defective subsequent assembly or other defects.
NECESSITY & URGENCY
1）Quality inspection: With growth of output, design alterations and new products launch, more and more measuring equipment is needed for quality assurance.
2）Thanks to its computer-aided inspection function, the new measuring arm can quickly identify deviations from the product with the original design so as to improve the design, crafts and quality.
3）Rapid inspection: Comparing to traditional manual methods or CMM, it allows users to significantly speed up their measurement work and helps detect problems early to reduce the rejection rate.
4）Quality control for supporting parts: Finding out errors between suppliers or outsourcing products and the original design in time in order to clarify the responsibilities.
5）Reverse engineering: Nowadays with customers ever-increasing demands, traditional methods are unable to explore any new products, in which case we should never give up the pursuit of more refined and higher quality products. Therefore, considering a stable and long-term development, a new measurement technology is urgently needed to improve this situation.
