Scanning and Modeling of Large Thin-Walled Curved Surface Part


Article Preview

The large sandwich structure composed of thin-walled aluminum alloy panels, and variable thickness of honeycomb or Polymethacrylimide (PMI) foam core is usually manufactured by pre-bonded forming process, that is pre-forming panels and sandwich core, and then curing adhesive them to be sandwich structure. Welding process of large thin-walled panel causes the panel surface to be irregular and have greater errors relative to the design surface. Simply CNC machining the sandwich core according to the design surface cannot guarantee an exact match sandwich core consistent with the panels. The actual topography of the panels must be scanned. It is proposed that the use of a new hand-held laser scanner, Handyscan to scan large thin-walled curved surface parts, of Geomagic software to handle the acquired point clouds and construct the surface model.
