3D Metrology Systems – Automotive – Robotic Inspection of Gears

EDM Intelligent Solutions combines industrial-grade robotic automation with advanced 3D scanning sensors and manufacturing intelligence to create robotic sensor head (RSH) inspection systems for use in numerous industrial metrology applications including gear measurement. The RSH-M10 can 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 surface finish inspection can analyze both profile (Ra) and area (Sa) based surface roughness, and identify surface defects.

Our 3D Metrology Systems are used for gear inspection and measurement applications that require the highest level of inspection detail, all while maintaining an ease of use that allows everyone on your production floor to operate it safely and efficiently. The streamlined human-machine interface allows your operators, managers, and engineers access to quick and repeatable measurements. This creates a package that allows the inspection task to be brought straight out to the production floor, creating more efficiency for your overall operations.


Creating intelligent solutions for manufacturing and measurement challenges is what we do. Over the past 25 years, we’ve completed thousands of measurement and metrology projects. What differentiates EDM Intelligent Solutions 3D Metrology Systems from the competition is our team’s unique understanding of how our systems can be applied to almost every manufacturing process. The EDMIS team of metrology technicians and applications engineers support their colleagues in our tight tolerance CNC machine shop that produces ultra-precision components for customers every day. Harnessing this unique relationship with manufacturing, our metrology team has the experience needed to fully assist our customers integrate EDMIS metrology systems within their manufacturing processes to leverage 3D measurements to improve both their manufacturing processes and products. We are confident that we have a system that can measure your most challenging components and we are ready to work with you to fully understand your metrology needs.
