Measurement Technology Transcends Limitations

Inspection of aerospace jet engine blades as well as industrial turbine, marine and compressor blades is among the most suitable applications for Nextec’s laser measurement systems.


Two recent MMS articles covering metrology advances should be of particular interest to manufacturers serving the automotive and aerospace industries. First, Renishaw has developed a new probe option for its Revo five-axis measuring head that enables users to measure surface finish on CMMs rather than with hand gages or dedicated machinery. The second article describes how Nextec Laser Metrology's laser systems use a different approach to beam triangulation and an adaptive control to provide a faster alternative to touch probes for parts with minute, sculpted features, shiny surfaces, and other features that often pose problems for non-contact systems.
