Steve Fletcher, Business Development, Physical Digital. The big change is the use of Digital Manufacturing, collecting and using data intelligently through the manufacturing process and the products life cycle. Standardisation of systems and workflows especially within the Design, measurement and RE space.
This episode of Cliff Notes: Ask a leader Podcast. Tristan Bailey talks to Steve Fletcher at Physical Digital, about his work in Aerospace with Rolls Royce and working at the highest level of quality control. Now with Physical Digital the specialise on 3D scanning parts for reverse engineering and quality control. Testing wear and tear post use and for batch samples from medical sizes to boat hulls. Also to rebuild legacy parts when 2D drawings have been lost or may have changed in the years since first fabrication.
Bringing these services into the production cycle and onto production lines as scanners get faster, changes the game for digital manufacturing to full circle service not just for testing for rejects.
... "Our business really is service on 3d optical scanning for measurement and reverse engineering but it's more than that you know, there's all the aspects of how acceptable the data is, how accurate the data is how useful the data is" ... -- Steve Fletcher
