Form Measurement

With our 3D Metrology services we’re able to offer our customers in-depth, non-contact measurements of almost any shape, size, and form. Using high-resolution 3D scanning technologies, verification of various dimensions of features within piece parts is quick and easily repeated amongst high quantities of parts.

3D Profile Form Measurement

High resolution 3D scans of piece parts allow for form measurement down to the µm scale. Profiles are cut across the 3D part scan data set and those included points are used to gather various form measurements including radii, angles, slot width, height step, etc…

3D scans containing millions of data points are captured of the piece part to be inspected

A profile is “cut” across the 3D scan data to select 3D points that are used for form measurments

Various form measurements are recorded, radii, height steps, angles, slot widths, etc…

Full 360° 3D Form Measurement

High precision rotation devices combined with 3D scan sensor technology allows for capture of full 360° 3D scans. Form measurement can then be extracted from these 3D piece part scans for inspection of even the most complex geometries.
