Modern product definition is commonly achieved by geometric dimensioning and tolerancing through a 3D CAD model. This is particularly important where complex, non-prismatic, free-form or organic geometry exists, as conventional dimensioning is not feasible.

Q-PLUS is fully conversant with Model Based Definition. Unusual shaped geometry requires unusual verification techniques. We have a wide array of special equipment, software and techniques to properly analyze 2D and 3D contours. Our methods both qualify and quantify the results.

Q-PLUS provides innumerable application-specific solutions ranging from abbreviated vector-driven key features inspections to extremely comprehensive part-to-CAD comparisons using high-density scan data. Such analyses can be best-fit using a number of algorithms to achieve “by-the-book” results for complex profile requirements.

Q-PLUS Labs Introduces the GapGun Pro for Revolutionary Speed in Portable Measurement

June 2017: Q-PLUS Labs adds the GapGun Pro to its expansive measurement arsenal. A versatile, hand-held, in-process quality inspection solution, the GapGun Pro rapidly captures measurement data for gap and flush, radius, edge break, burr, countersink, scratch, weld, seal, angle and more. Along with its ability to measure across a wide range of applications, the GapGun Pro also accommodates measurements from carbon fiber to high gloss black paint and chromes. It can also distinguish between different colored parts due to its VChange sensors’ Hi-Range measurement capability which dynamically adjusts the system’s output to allow measurement on multiple surface conditions. Its intuitive user interface enables the operator to always have a read on the results of the GapGun’s full color screen, even in difficult to reach measurement scenarios, allowing the operator to cut down on the amount of time it takes to collect data and increasing overall measurement throughput.
