Reverse Engineering Solutions for Obsolete Components & Long Lead Items

Bringing Your Legacy Equipment Back to Life

In the fast-paced world of technology and manufacturing, staying ahead while maintaining older equipment can be a challenge. Obsolete components and parts with long lead times can significantly hinder progress and productivity. At Prime Machine Inc, we specialize in reverse engineering for obsolete components and long delivery items, offering a seamless solution from laser scanning to manufacturing.

Our Process:

  1. Laser Scanning & Digitization: Our journey begins with precise laser scanning of your obsolete component. This non-invasive method captures the intricate tails of your part, ensuring every curve and angle is accurately documented. This digital twin serves as the foundation for our reverse engineering process.
  2. Material Analysis: Understanding the material composition is crucial. Our team conducts thorough material analysis to determine the exact specifications or the closest contemporary equivalent, ensuring the functionality and longevity of the component match the original.
  3. Modeling with PolyWorks Software: Utilizing the industry-leading PolyWorks software, our skilled engineers transform scanned data into detailed 3D models. This step is pivotal, as it allows for the modification, analysis, and enhancement of the component design to meet current standards without losing its original functionality.
  4. Program Creation for Manufacturing: With a refined 3D model, we develop precise manufacturing programs. These programs guide our state-of-the-art CNC machines to produce components that are true to their original design or better, ensuring a perfect fit and function.
  5. Manufacturing of Mechanical Parts: The final step in our process is the manufacturing of your mechanical parts. Whether it’s a one-off piece or a small batch production, our advanced manufacturing facilities are equipped to handle your needs, delivering high-quality components that breathe new life into your legacy equipment.
