3D COORDINATE METROLOGY

TACTILE METROLOGY

Quick, precise checking of prototypes, initial samples or series production components:
3D coordinate metrology is used wherever components are to be measured precisely and only very small tolerances are allowed. Typical for tactile measurements are random or hundred-percent quality control in vehicle manufacture, machine tool and machinery manufacture, electrical engineering, plastics technology, precision mechanics or medical technology. Even large series are suitable if, for instance, only a few inspection features are required and a complete scan is too time-consuming.

POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS AND USAGE
OF TACTILE METROLOGY

  • Preparation and validation of measuring programs: offline programming for ZEISS CALYPSO and Mitutoyo MCOSMOS
  • Geometric dimensional inspection: highly precise measurement of standard geometries and freeform surfaces
  • Shape and position tolerances: measurement and analysis of roundness, cylindrical shape, perpendicularity, parallel alignment, concentricity, thickness deviation and much more
  • Surface and contour measurements: reliable results for radii, chamfers, contours, roughness, ripple, angles, recesses and length tolerances
  • Gear tooth measurement: exact measurement, including evaluation in accordance with the standards, with and without rotary table, of internal and external gear teeth, e.g. gear wheels with helical or spur teeth, toothed racks, shafts, worm gears or rotors
  • Surface and line shape: nominal-actual comparison with CAD model
  • Complete initial sampling: preparation of initial sample test reports according to drawing requirements (e.g. VDA and PPAP)
  • Jig manufacture: CAD design of measurement fixtures, production gauges, gauges for incoming goods and much more – from planning to realisation
