Die Scanning for Manufacturing

8 Hour Training Course

Course Objective

Provide an overview of how to utilize scanning technology to effectively capture part & die scanned data. Examples will showcase gathering data for outer/inner panels, scanning parameters to consider and their effects, and techniques to maximize data quality for downstream use cases. Guidelines and preparation of this data for alignment, die maintenance, forming & welding simulation will also be presented.

Target Audience

Engineering, Quality and Plant personnel involved with the use/application of scanning technology or benchmarking of scanned data

Course Outline
