If you have existing instruments or parts of the instruments but don’t have the design or construction drawings, then producing them from scratch can be a problem. That is definitely the case when the instrument has very small metals parts. The specialists at JPT can easily solve that problem for you. After dismantling the instrument we then scan the parts with our extremely accurate 3D camera scanner, retrieve the measurements, enter that data and transfer the data to a CADD software package. After that we can correct the smallest of deviations in the scan and thus re-create the technical drawings needed to produce the very small metal parts for you. In this way reverse engineering is much more than just re-producing an existing or worn metal part.
Reverse engineering for worn metal parts
Often metal parts of repair instruments can be worn out. In such cases it is hard to determine the exact dimensions of the small metal part. For this reason JPT also uses the apposing part of the very precise metal part in order to determine the dimensions. In doing this we also take full account of size deviations due to wear and tear and employ reverse engineering to determine the correct size for the new part. We also examine the quality of the metal part, look at what metal it is made from and offer advice regarding what metal that should be used in the new part. In this way the reverse engineering of JPT offers the best possible new and reconditioned parts.
Repairs and restorations using reverse engineering
When repairing and restoring timepieces and instruments, it is often necessary to make use of reverse engineering. The construction drawings or working drawings of the instruments or timepieces may often not be available or may perhaps be unknown. Using reverse engineering JPT can provide new, reliable and very precise new metal parts. You can be assured of the finest possible tolerances in the sector and these will be verified by the readings taken by our 3D scanning equipment that guarantees quality.
