3D Scan IT & InnovMetric help Eifel Inc. halve injection-mold delivery times and maintain margins

Before scanning and point-cloud-based inspection, moldmakers had to make do with point-by-point methods developed for manufacturers. Those were never adequate for tooling and molded parts because they left more than 99% of a surface uninspected. Using the latest laser scanning equipment and PolyWorks software, Eifel, a Michigan-based moldmaker, can now globally inspect plastic molds for airbag manufacturer Autoliv at three critical stages: aluminum prototype tools, mold tryouts, and production-ready.
