It is crucial to figure out the potential design errors in the product leading to premature failure. Apart from competitive benefits, the reverse engineering process imparts manufacturers with comprehensive design information of their product, from which further innovation can be accomplishedA leading tools manufacturer from the US approached Hi-Tech to reverse engineer steel strapping machine, which possessed a design flaw that led to premature failure. The client needed to investigate the problem through simulation and needed a design solution to overcome the early failure issue.The steel strapping machine prototype was transformed into digital CAD model using 3D scanning technique and manual measurements. To reverse engineer the machine, individual components were disassembled and respective geometrical information was recorded to obtain accurate overall design of the machine. Individual component drawings as well as detailed manufacturing drawings were prepared. The components were then analyzed separately for structural integrity and stress concentration to identify critical areas in design requiring optimization.Based on the analysis results obtained, it was observed that two of the machine components needed modification in design in order to sustain stress levels resulting during the machine operation. Modifications in the design were made and the new design of the machine was proposed with better ergonomics and strength against loads to withstand premature failure.Competitive advantage in the market with improved product design30% reduction in prototyping test trialsIdentified major design flaws with reduced turn around and faster time to marketDigital design documentation for future modification in designSolutionBenefits????To reverse engineer steel strapping machine for design optimization and document design information digitallyTools Manufacturer, USAChallenges:=capture accurate geometrical dimensions=Performing manual dimension measurements to obtain missed-out geometrical information during the 3D scanning process=Developing CAD models, 3D and 2D detailed drawings for manufacturing purposes=Evaluating the design for stress concentration and performing subsequent optimization to propose better design of the strapping machine3D scanning complex machine geometry to Solution:The CAD model of the steel strapping machine was developed using 3D scanning technique and manual dimension measurement. In order to reverse engineer, the machine was disassembled sequentially to capture accurate geometric information of each individual component. The final design obtained was utilized to perform structural analysis for identification of stress concentration. Based on the analysis results, the design was optimized to withstand high stress values without failure.Case Study HighlightsObjective:Client Profile:About Hi-TechHi-Tech CADD, a division of Hi-Tech Outsourcing Services, provides concept to manufacturing and post-manufacturing engineering solutions to organizations across the globe.
