In assembly, the individual parts are put together into assemblies and are analyzed. Physical fixtures are often used for that. The use of such fixtures requires the user to have special knowledge. The respective user also often influences the results. 3D digitizing with the help of the ATOS system makes it possible to inspect the assembly virtually instead. Physical fixtures become unnecessary.
Assembly by virtualization
In assembly, physical fixtures are used to check how well different parts fit together for an installation or how well a single part matches the CAD model. With the ATOS system, the assembly analysis can be completely virtualized.
Virtual check of subassembly
In the assembly analysis, a joints master jig is used to check if the single parts can be joined to a subassembly. The joints master jig becomes unnecessary when using the ATOS system because the analyses are carried out virtually.
