QCML & WIU completed a 2 year DMDII research program led by GE Global Research

This project involved developing and demonstrating geometric adaptive machining capabilities for use on milling machines and robots.  The technology enables either 3D scanning or probing of a component, comparison of scan/probe data to the original solid model, and generation of morphed tool paths to enable a mill or robot to machine the part into compliance with the solid model.  Other project team members included University of Wisconsin, Metrologic, Genesis Systems, and Hexagon Metrology.
