Timeline

Celebrating supporting customers with scanner based vision systems for 30+ years!

Today:   Over thousands of customers in 50+ countries on six continents are using ScanCAD products and services.
ScanCAD is proud to support our customers through an extensive network of OEMs, distributors, representatives and technical personnel.

2022: ScanCAD, along with support from experts in the field, implemented a comprehensive quality management system in alignment with ISO 9001 quality standards. Additionally, ScanCAD worked with the United States Office of Defence Trade Controls Compliance to become fully ITAR registered so that we can support our Government and other defense-oriented customers by providing them with full turnkey reverse engineering services on all ITAR or export-controlled articles.

2021: ScanCAD initiated a comprehensive research process to understand the feasibility of implementing ISO 9001 practices. In addition, a Virtual Classroom Training Class was developed to support our global customer base with a mixture of self-paced modules as well instructor feedback with graded assignments. These classes are even more effective and economical than in-person training since students can proceed at their own pace, repeat sections when necessary and eliminate the need for expensive and time-consuming travel.

2020: ScanCAD worked in collaboration with TetraHive – US Air Force Phase II SBIR (Small Business Innovative Research) for enhancing our Non-Destructive PCB Re-Engineering using X-Ray technology.

In response to customer feedback, we added a robust metrology add-on complementing our inspection product suite. With the new addon, customers can perform 100% inspection of products and also take detailed annotated measurements using the same NIST traceable system.

2019: ScanCAD core software release 8.80 provides a brand new, completely redesigned and rethought user experience. The new user experience was constructed from the ground-up to provide a simple, intuitive, and streamlined interface regardless of the user’s workflow.

Collaborated with Tetrahive Technologies on a U.S. Air Force SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) project to develop and improve non-destructive PCB RE technology using X-Ray Computed Tomography coupled with advanced algorithmic processing.
