Crawford Co. is pleased to announce the purchase of a premier self-calibrating 2D/3D parts Laser Inspection system.
The scanner will offer Crawford Co. another tool for its Laser Cutting and Welded Fabrication Divisions. Crawford is the only company in the Quad Cities region to offer 3D scanning technology from VIRTEK. Crawford dramatically increases throughput with the new VIRTEK scanner. The system is designed for First Article Inspection, Quality Reporting (SPC, ISO, Lean, etc.), Reverse Engineering, and now provides Automatic Formed Inspection.
The scanner captures over 500 data points per second to make part inspections laser-fast, right on Crawford's shop floor.
The system quickly performs 100% inspections accurate to +/- 0.002" (0.05mm) for 2D measurement and to +/- .010" for Formal (3D) measurements.
AFM Form Measurement
The AFM option on the Crawford scanner makes 3D measurement simple. The system allows for measurement of heights, edge-to-edge or hole-to-hole on interior flanges and raised features on a wide-variety of materials. This system replaces the necessity of using hand tools for measuring formed (3D) parts.
WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING
I appreciate your expertise discussing my air conditioning project and our little doodles on paper for the finer points and needs. I enjoyed the personal attention to detail. I was impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of engineering, organizing, timing and installation. I'm so glad that we still have union contractors that know how to do things right. As you know I have worked 37 years thru the IBEW # 145. On larger projects we would be assigned a "tool buddy" to work in the same area and help each other when needed. The reason I mention this is because Jeff O'Leary is the kind of journeyman I would choose to work with. He is polite, calm, well-spoken and knowledgeable. Of course an HVAC system is not a kit. It is a custom installation. Jeff made it easy to discuss the finer points and the installation as needed. I enjoyed the experience and I am very pleased with the outcome. The air is fresh and clean and easy to breath.
