Advanced Manufacturing

PAR Systems has patented approaches to producing critical components with exacting tolerances in challenging and uncertain manufacturing environments.

If you produce high value products that require tight tolerances yet exhibit significant uncertainty of location and size of contour, PAR’s advanced manufacturing can provide an optimal solution.

Why advanced manufacturing

Advanced manufacturing is perfect for cases where the amount of uncertainty in the system/process is larger than the tolerance required.  The uncertainty can stem from contour, size, location deviation of the part or how the part is presented/held for processing.  Whatever the case, PAR advanced manufacturing can help.

Examples of Advanced Manufacturing:

  • Robotic / Configurable Fixturing to hold the work
  • Active scan or measurement of the work to determine the actual as-built and as-presented condition
  • Scanning of Global and Local part features to use as fiducials to calculate global and local working frames to adjust tool paths
  • Active seam tracking or force sensing
  • Integrated Process heads that combine multiple processes in one head to ensure high fidelity positioning between the multiple process tools
  • Minimizing part handling by reducing the amount of fixturing and combining multiple processes into integrated work cells

Precisely automating processes can help you meet exacting tolerances.
