CMM & Laser Scanning

When it comes to quality assurance, ADDMAN achieves vital measurements for inspection using cutting-edge laser scanning, CT scanning, and CMM technologies. These methods can confirm both external and internal geometry features for conformance to customer requirements.

CMM

Manufacturing a part is not the end of the cycle. At ADDMAN, we ensure that our parts, whether additive or precision machined, conform to customer requirements by using high quality CMM equipment. Our team uses the most state of the art technology such as Renishaw tip probes, and Zeiss scanning probes to obtain precise measurements and verify conformance.

Laser Scanning

When measurements around full surface detail are critical, CMM measurements can be exponentially lengthy and inefficient. That’s why ADDMAN uses 3D Laser scanning to capture millions of data points across the entire surface of a complex, convoluted geometry. The data points, known as a point cloud, is then fit to a deviation map from the CAD model in order to yield quick analysis.

CT Scanning

Laser scanning and CMM technologies are great technologies for determining measurements of external features but for internal channels, voids, and fluidity, ADDMAN uses CT scanning technology. The CT scan will verify dimensional accuracy of internal geometries that would otherwise be impossible to measure with traditional technology. By using CT scanning, we not only can check part geometry and feature, but can also verify if all internal cavities are clear of blockages caused by clumped powder.

More Processes & Materials

Metal Additive

ADDMAN can produce highly complex products using cutting-edge metal printing technologies, such as laser powder bed fusion. We help companies establish a tactical roadmap for developing additive manufacturing capabilities in order to gain a competitive advantage.

Polymer 3D Printing

With polymer 3D printing, you can create parts quickly and with maximum flexibility. With ADDMAN polymer components, you can select a single material or a specialized blend including carbon and glass fibers and print parts that are 2X stronger than any other company.

Precision Machining

Precision machining is the essential backbone for production parts and components. ADDMAN’s Precision Machining footprint includes 5 axis CNC, turning centers, and wire EDM systems, as well as a full complement of processing and finishing elements. Our Precision Machining work dates back over 50 years and is recognized for achieving the highest quality standards.

Injection Molding

Our domestic injection molding capabilities are fueled by the dedicated team at our HARBEC business. With more than 45 years of experience, we offer superior strength and product durability, fast production speeds, and the capacity to meet the need for high production volumes.

Metallurgy & Print Parameter Development

ADDMAN’s industry-leading talent continually innovates previously non-printable materials like refractory metals. We develop materials and 3D printing equipment parameters that allow us to understand and isolate variables. As a result of our process, ADDMAN’s products demonstrate improved strength, density, and fatigue resistance.
