Our 3D Metrology Services verify geometric dimensions and surface characteristics on gears of all shapes, sizes, and materials using 3D scanning and measurement technologies. Whether the entire gear profile needs to be measured around the full 360°, or only a single gear tooth inspection is needed, we can extract 3D form measurement profiles to inspect gear dimensions including pressure angle, pitch, inside diameter, outside diameter, and many more. To characterize the gear surfaces, our 3D optical inspection technology can analyze both profile (Ra) and area (Sa) based surface finish, and identify surface defects.
Below is an example of the inspection of a pinion gear. The gear inspection and 3D measurements of this component were completed using our RSH-M10 Robotic 3D Metrology System.
