CASE STUDY – FLYING HIGH FOR BOEING
Contracted to the Royal Australian Air Force, JPC Engineering played a significant role in a major structural repair to the F1-11 Strike Bomber aircraft.
Using sophisticated 3D modeling and laser scanning capabilities, JPC produced drawings and schematics to enable new parts to be manufactured. Scanning data from a laser tracking devise and original manufacturer drawings, JPC was able to recreate parts for production, some as large as 2800 x 600mm in size.
The work at Boeing has brought several technologies together including:
- 3D Laser Scanning
- 3D Solid Modeling
- Rapid Prototyping directly from the 3D Model
- Manufacture of finished parts from the 3D Model
Without the use of these technologies, the repair to the aircraft would have been difficult to complete.
JPC Engineering plans to maintain a long-term relationship with Boeing.
