i3D MFG™ Blue Light 3D Scanning

Blue Light 3D Scanning

Blue Light 3D Scanner

i3D™ Manufacturing’s 3D scanner performs surface height measurements of parts using Coherence Scanning Interferometry (CSI) using spectrally-broadband (‘blue-light’) illumination. Various scanning interferometer configurations may be used to measure macroscopic objects with surface profiles measuring in the centimeter range, to microscopic parts with surface profiles measuring in the micrometer range (µm). i3D MFG™ uses its 3D scanner to inspect each part to insure specification conformance.

3D scanning is also a useful tool for FEA analysis, reverse engineering, obsolete part re-creation, and quality assurance measures. Our Polyworks software platform combined with blue-light scan technology creates a powerful 3D tool for file creation, part inspection, quality assurance reporting, and one-off part production.

Solutionix Rexcan CS+

Blue Light 3D Scanner

Automatic 3D scanning and active sync 3D scanning eliminate hours of expensive engineering time in part design and 3D file creation. A single click of a mouse enables our engineers to create an entire part in 3D CAD data form. One more click to actively synchronize the model and camera views and our engineers can assess any scanned position, add more scans where necessary, and complete an accurate scan process.

There are no target or manual alignment adjustments necessary with i3D MFG™’s Rexcan CS+. Pre-calculated axis calibration information guides accurate alignment without manual registration. Flexibility is the scanning path generation allows data collection on a wide variety of part sizes and shapes.

The Basics:

  • Accurate and detailed data scan using an automated calibration process
  • Reverse Engineer custom and obsolete parts / components
  • Twin Blue LED camera lenses with an integrated Sensor
  • Capable of producing 3D CAD data files

Aluminum (Al)

AlSi12 is our most common DMLS Aluminum powder and is perfect for projects with good thermal and low weight considerations.  It is an optimal metal for parts with thin walls and complex geometries.

Titanium (Ti)

Ti64 is the standard DMLS powder which is well suited for Medical, Aerospace, Firearms, Energy and Automotive projects requiring corrosion resistance, strength, weight reduction and biocompatibility.

Stainless Steels

PH1 is a medical grade, sterilisable, corrosion resistant steel. It is primarily used in Medical, Firearms, Energy and Automotive applications. After heat treatment, PH1 hardens to 40-45 HRC. Our stainless steel equivalents include 15-5, 17-4, and .316. Parts made from EOS StainlessSteel PH1 can be machined, spark-eroded, welded, micro shot-peened, polished and coated if required

Maraging Steel

Our maraging steel powder has excellent strength and mechanical properties. MS1 is a pre-alloyed, ultra high strength steel powder most commonly used for tooling applications. Its chemical composition corresponds to U.S. 18% Ni Maraging 300, European 1.2709 and German X3NiCoMoTi 18-9-5. After heat treatment, MS1 typically has a 50-53 HRC

Inconel (IN718)

IN718 is a DMLS nickel; A Chromium alloy with superior heat resistance and typical heat treatment hardness of 40-47 HRC (370-450HB).  Rocket, space, aerospace, firearms, energy, and automotive industries rely on Inconel.

Custom Powders

i3D MFG™ is the market leader is DMLS powder development. In addition to our established metallurgical partnerships, i3D™ is the first North American EOS Material Process Application (MPA) Development Partner, giving us access to the latest DMLS machine parameter sets and enabling i3D™ to develop highly specialized powder applications for aerospace, rocket, automotive, and casting customers
