|The QC Group has taken another step to provide the highest level of customer satisfaction for scanning services. Now QC has expanded its capabilities to include chromatic white light interferometry. This technology is based on the confocal measurement principle and works using chromatic depth scanning. White light is refracted differentially depending on its wavelength in order to carry out distance measurements and to capture 3D geometry.
The technology greatly enhances QC’s commitment to serving precision tooling designers and manufacturers. Now the quality of a micro-scan can be produced for scanning highly reflective tooling inserts, transparent materials, and microstructures without prepping the part surface in any way. This improves the accuracy of the CAD model and CAD comparisons that result from the scan.
The QC Group will be providing this service at the start of 2012.
