3D Metrology Services – Industrial – Defect Detection on Gear Teeth

At EDM Intelligent Solutions, our high-resolution 3D scans of piece parts allow for form measurement down to the µm scale. With our 3D Metrology Services we’re able to offer our customers in-depth, non-contact measurements of almost any shape, size, and form. Measuring the flatness of a component is made simple by analyzing the differences in height throughout the surface being measured.

Below is an example of the form inspection of a precision drive gear that focused on detection of defects on the gear surface. The form evaluation defect detection and 3D measurements of this component were completed using our MVi5 3D Metrology Center.
