Large Parts & Assembly Measurement


In various Industries such as Manufacturing, Construction, Aerospace, and Automotive, the need for Large parts/assembly on-site measurement is paramount. These measurements play a crucial role in ensuring precision, quality, and efficiency throughout the production process.

Importance of On-Site Measurement

Large parts and assemblies are often complex and require precise measurements to meet design specifications. On-site measurement eliminates the need to transport these bulky components to dedicated measurement facilities, saving time and resources. It allows for real-time monitoring and adjustments, reducing errors and rework. On-site measurement ensures that large parts and assemblies fit together seamlessly, minimizing potential issues during installation or assembly.

Challenges Faced in Large Parts/Assembly On-Site Measurement

  1. Access and Space Limitations: On-site measurements can pose challenges due to restricted access to certain areas or limited space for equipment setup. These constraints may require the use of portable, compact measurement devices that can be easily maneuvered in tight spaces.
  2. Calibration and Environmental Factors: Accurate measurement requires calibration of instruments and accounting for environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, and vibrations. On-site measurement must consider these variables to ensure reliable and consistent results.
  3. Data Synchronization: When working with large parts or assemblies, it is essential to synchronize data from different measurement points to create a comprehensive understanding of the overall structure. Proper data synchronization requires advanced measurement techniques and tools.

Solutions for Accurate On-Site Measurement

  1. Portable Coordinate Measurement Machines (CMMs): Portable CMMs enable accurate measurement of large parts and assemblies directly on-site. These devices use laser trackers or articulated arms equipped with touch probes to capture precise data. Portable CMMs offer flexibility, ease of use, and high accuracy, making them ideal for on-site measurement scenarios.
  2. 3D Scanning: 3D scanning technology allows for the capture of the entire surface geometry of large parts and assemblies. This non-contact method rapidly generates a digital model, enabling comprehensive dimensional analysis. With the advancements in handheld and portable 3D scanners, on-site measurement becomes more accessible and efficient.
