Since 2003, ATW Engineering has been at the forefront of our reputable and loyal Clients' quest for more independence vs. OEMs and Vendors by providing Thailand-based industries with local replication and reconditioning services/solutions. Pioneering and advocating the technological evolution of Mechanical Reverse Engineering, our personnel skills, our work processes as well as our equipment and tools have been elevated to the all-new precision and quality level required by today's Industry 4.0 era.
Adjusting ATW Solution process to the very needs of your project, be it quite simple or the most complex, we reverse-engineer the damaged or obsolete part every step of the way, from scanning the "as is" original component - either in ATW shop or in-situ with our portable CMM tools, through data modelling and up to the ad hoc level of 3D precision agreed upon with you.
The Reverse Engineering process applies to just about any mechanical equipment and their sub-components, static or rotating.
Using PMI guns and XRF technology, the first step is always a thorough analysis of the materials, especially if the objective is to improve the part resilience, hardness or longevity. Working indifferently with all sorts of metals and alloys, ATW metallurgy specialist will issue an Inspection Report that includes recommendations to improve the requested part property(ies).
Metals & Alloys we frequently use:
-High Strength Steel: 4140/4330/30CrNiMo8
-Tool Steel: D2/H13/M2
-Duplex Steel: 2205/2507
-Super Alloys: Monel, Inconel, Hastelloy,Titanium, High Nickel 625/200
-Bronze NiAl, Mg,PbSn, Zn(gunmetal)
3D Scanning & Metrology
Used at both front-end of the Reverse Engineering sequence for 3D scanning, then during fabrication for QC purpose and ultimately at the back-end of re-manufacturing for precision prior to delivery, ATW Metrology Center is equipped with best-in-class Coordinate Measurement Machines (CMM) to ensure full compliance with our Clients' requirements.
Main Metrology Equipment:
-ZEISS Contura 2G Compact 1.5 Machine
-FARO 8-axis Quantum FaroArm non-contact portable laser scanner
The classical 3D modelling sequence comprising of following steps:
3D scanning ==> Point Cloud ==> Mesh ==> Surface ==> Solid is then conducted using PolyWorks and PowerShade.
Our data import/export versatility allows us to accept all types of formats (STL, PTS, TXT, STP, IGS, OBJ, Autocad 2D/3D) and convert our Reverse Engineering files to most mainstream CAD/CAM sofware (SolidWorks, CATIA, NX, SpaceClaim, etc...)
ATW Engineering also provides all types of surface finish and/or technical coatings as per either your specific requirements on the matter or as required by the target performance of the new part. That may include: thermal spray, HVOF,laser welding, electro-brush plating, hardchrome plating, stelliting, etc...
