Modern engineering era is passing through continual advancement that has never been. At the same time, it is also facing several challenges. The engineering challenges are wide and varied but mostly revolve around money, time and quality.
Few of the modern engineering challenges are such as - keeping products relevant, new innovative cutting-edge technologies, shorter product life cycles, shorter timeline for design to market, aggression of competitors, regulatory compliance, green & sustainability, environmental concerns. Considering few from these challenges, the utilization/need for reverse and re-engineering is at high high requirement in the engineering industry.
Re-engineering is the investigation and redesign of individual component, sub-system or system. It may also describe the entire overhaul of a device by taking the current design and improving certain aspects of it. The aims of re-engineering may be to improve a particular area of performance or functionality, reduce operational costs or add new elements to a current design. The methods used depend on the device but typically involve engineering drawings of the amendments followed by extensive testing of prototypes before production. The rights to re-engineer a product belong solely to the original owner of the design or relevant patent.
Unlike re-engineering, reverse engineering takes a finished product with the aim of discovering how it works by testing it. Typically, this is done by companies that seek to infiltrate a competitor's market or understand its new product. In doing so they can produce new products while allowing the original creator to pay all the development costs and take all the risks involved with creating a new product. Analysis of a product in this way is done without technical drawings or prior knowledge of how the device works, and the basic method used in reverse engineering begins by identifying the system's components, followed by an investigation into the relationship among these components.
Reverse engineering is a controversial subject. While the companies performing it may be at a distinct advantage, saving both time and money, the original creator of the design may be severely affected by the increased competition. Although design patents can protect an engineer or company from this kind of activity, the security this can offer is limited. By reverse engineering a product, you can discover original ideas that are not protected; in doing so, you may infringe another's intellectual property rights. It is therefore important that designs are not disclosed to competitors and protection is in place to prevent fraudulent activity.
By taking all the above concerns and challenges into consideration, we provide reverse & re-engineering services which includes reading 2D/3D profile data from an existing model with the help of a scanner having touch pressure sensitivity or laser scanning & creating 3D models from this data having engineering surface geometry usable for further processes like mould making etc.
Our consultative, problem solving process will help you quantify performance goals and ultimately get you the deliverable you need. Whether it’s a quick surface model or a fully parametric files and 3D Scan solutions as well. Our engineers have experience working with a wide variety of CAD packages.
Developing reliable, and competitive engineered products require early involvement by a diversified and highly specialized team. This early involvement provides maximum value in production, upfront profitability and eliminates unnecessary new tooling, investments and production validation expenses.
Our services to reverse & re-engineering is not just limited to size, shape, topology, topography modelling but also associated to the right choice of physics and technology integration to reverse or re-engineered the product or system to re-produce it faster, better and cheaper.
