In-house process for the production of a prototype prototype "Sauter E + D Workerhelmet Type I"
At the beginning, the outer skin of a standard industrial safety helmet was scanned with the GOM 3D measuring system ATOS Core. The 3D scan served as a template for the ergonomics dimensions.
The engineering process was started on the basis of design sketches. The new helmet design was modeled directly in 3D (CAD) and a volume created using the systems ICEM Surf, Catia and Siemens NX. For the first visualization a 2D drawing and renderings were used.
Afterwards, the new product with the Stratasys FDM rapid prototyping process in UV-resistant ASA at Sauter E + D was produced directly from STL data within 31 hours.
The newly produced functional prototype was again completely measured by CT volume measurement.
Based on the 3D-CT data, the dimensional deviations were documented in a target / actual report, which shows manufacturing tolerances of + -0.4 mm. A wall thickness analysis documented the constant manufacturing quality of the FDM process. The last pore and voids analysis shows the voids of the functional prototype.
