The Lead

by Sparton Corporation

The drive to get commercial and industrial products to market faster than competitors is an ever-increasing challenge. That's why a seamless transition from design to manufacturing is critical: to prevent production headaches that may hamper success later on. In our white paper, "Smoothing the Transition from Design to Manufacture: Best Practices," we show you eight best practices for a trouble-free design to-manufacturing hand-off, and offer details on:

-How to factor the complexity of the assembly process early on
-Making cost-effective material sourcing decisions
-Environmental tests that may be required before you go to market

Many industries must precisely measure the three-dimensional features of objects. The most efficient to do this is with a laser tracker. In order for the ever-increasing customer specifications to be met, there has to be emphasis on accuracy. Understanding both the distance and angular measurements of laser tracker instruments is an important aspect of selecting the best instrument for a particular application. Learn more about laser trackers and how it can make entirely new manufacturing methods possible and give you the results you need.


Those who traditionally work with two-dimensional plans and schematic diagrams are increasingly discovering the advantages of three-dimensional planning and documentation tools. Forward-thinking companies and users that implement 3D laser scanners are provided an efficient and accurate way of capturing three-dimensional snapshots of any environment. This technology helps to streamline workflows by allowing critical surfaces and environments to be measured with a level of confidence and speed, not possible with traditional tools, along with a way to deliver robust models that can revisited digitally at any point in time. Explore what 3D laser scanning can do for you and your organizational goals.

Traditional manufacturing methods, like machining and injection molding, have many rules, restrictions, and limitations. These rules don’t apply when using direct digital manufacturing. Designers are free to concentrate on the best design and not concern themselves with manufacturability.


3D laser scanning technology is helping companies get the data they need in product design including inspection, CAD comparison, reverse engineering, and more.


In product design and development, efficiency is key. Read this white paper to learn about 3D technology that helps companies design better products faster
