B&J Specialty, Inc. provides reverse engineering services on any items able to be 3D digitally scanned including: dies, molds, or castings. Tooling prints are often lost in acquisitions, moves, or just misplaced through the years. Our Steinbichler Comet L3D blue light 3D scanner can read up to 2 million data points in 1.5 seconds. Through this cutting edge technology, we can create detailed models of existing tooling, molds, or parts with an accuracy of ±0.003". Combining our blue light scanner with our Canon photogrammetry system allows us to scan parts up to 120" x 84" x 40". Raw scan data is output into a clean mesh (STL) file, and can be further processed into the appropriate CAD or CAM format depending on the application. RaidForm software is used to create models for reverse engineering purposes (XOR format) or compare scans to existing drawings for verification (XOV).

In addition to reverse engineering, blue light scanning is an efficient and precise quality control tool. Scans of parts can be compared directly to prints and CAD models for verification. This process is fast and allows for dimensional inspection of parts that may be too delicate to measure with CMM equipment or manual tactile measurement devices. Precision 3D scanning is ideal for completing 1st article inspections as well as subsequent routine part inspections. Inspection output may be viewed in Rapidform Explorer viewer software. This is a free, downloadable software that allows complete 3D interaction with an entire scan to CAD model comparison.

Whether prints need to be made for design or archival purposes, or difficult to measure dimensions need to be verified, 3D scanning is an accurate and fast tool for modeling intricate parts. Scans may be used to design tooling, create CNC tool paths, program additive manufacturing equipment for rapid prototypes, or capture data for future reference. We are a family owned business who has succeeded by staying focused on bringing customers the newest manufacturing technology that adds value to our services.
