Under normal circumstances, we produce according to customers’ drawings. A set of rigorous 2D drawings and 3D drawings can ensure that the finished product achieves the design purpose. If you only have one sketch, then our experienced engineers can help you complete the drawing together. As long as you can provide complete data, it can be achieved.
But there is a situation, if you only have a physical product, how can you make the same product based on it? If the actual product is worn out, can you still make the same product as before it was worn out? Reverse engineering can solve these problems perfectly.
What is reverse engineering ?
Reverse engineering is the general process of analyzing a technology specifically to ascertain how it was designed or how it operates. This kind of inquiry engages individuals in a constructive learning process about the operation of systems and products. Reverse engineering as a method is not confined to any particular purpose, but is often an important part of the scientific method and technological development. The process of taking something apart and revealing the way in which it works is often an effective way to learn how to build a technology or make improvements to it.
Reverse engineering in manufacturing refers to the generation of 3D images of manufactured parts when blueprints are not available to remanufacture parts. To reverse engineer a part, the part is measured by a coordinate measuring machine (CMM). As it is measured, a 3-D wire frame image is generated and displayed on a monitor. After the measuring is complete, the wire frame image is dimensioned. Any part can be reverse engineered using these methods
The role of reverse engineering
The role of reverse engineering:
Shorten the vowin.cn' target='_blank'>product design and development cycle
Reduce the cost and risk of developing new products for enterprises;
Speed up product modeling and serialization design;
It is suitable for single-piece and small-batch parts manufacturing, especially for mold manufacturing. It can be divided into direct mold making and indirect mold making.
Direct molding method: The rapid direct molding method based on RP technology is to directly manufacture the result of the mold CAD by the RP system. This method neither requires the use of RP system to make prototypes, nor does it rely on traditional mold manufacturing processes. It is particularly fast for metal mold manufacturing and is a promising mold making method.
Indirect molding method: Indirect molding method is to use RP technology to produce prototypes of product parts, using the prototype as a master mold, core or molding tool (grinding mold), and then combining with the traditional molding process to create the required mold
How do we help you complete product reproduction?
Customers send samples to us
The engineer analyzes whether it can do reverse engineering, it may break the product to observe the internal structure
Use CMM for reverse engineering, and engineers complete 2D and 3D drawings based on the surveyed data
