Abstract

The capabilities of non-contact laser spot triangulation sensors for high accuracy measurements have slowly increased over the past decade, and now have usable resolution below 0.1 µm. The Dimensional Metrology Group has developed a simple scanning system to work with these sensors, and present the system details and data from a variety of geometries. The features measured include screw threads, fuel cell channels, and CT scanner phantoms.
