Novacam metrology videos

The videos below present typical metrology solutions by industry. Due to limited space and since new applications of low-coherence interferometry are discovered daily, this list is not exhaustive and requires periodic updates. If you do not see your industry or application listed, we encourage you to contact us and we’ll be happy to discuss your particular metrology needs.

Edge scanning

MicroCam-3D profilometer with a non-contact fiber-based optical scanner provides micron-precision 3D characterization of tool edges. In this configuration, a drill bit is rotated on a chuck base while the scanner inspects the item top to bottom following a user-defined scanning sequence. Benefits: capability of 3D interactive modelling of the entire inspected tool, option to automate pass-or-fail reports, 100% user-defined measurement parameters, measurements of edge sharpness, edge radius, and more.

Air foil scanning (aerospace)

MicroCam-3D airfoil scanner, a non-contact CMM, delivers micron-precision 3D optical measurements of hard-to-reach places. Benefits: fully automated inspection of component complete geometry, airfoil trailing and leading edge, real-time 3D model, micron-precision defect detection.

system information

Turbine blade inspection (aerospace)

RS2, a micron-precision non-contact optical scanner probe, enters into the complex geometrical structures of turbine blades to completely acquire their dimensional geometry. Benefits: fully configurable automated scanning sequences, detection of surface or dimensional defects, characterization of EDM slots and airholes (control of fan-out angle, etc.), tolerance analysis, datum alignment capability, and more.

system information

Valve body scanning (automotive)

RS2, a micron-precision non-contact optical scanner probe, acquires the ID of several valve bores (inner cylinders) in a valve body as part of a fully-automated digital inspection. Benefits:  3D interactive modelling of valve bores, measurements of distance, position, cylindricity, surface/dimensional defects, roughness, geometric tolerances of internal features, dimensional deviations, and more.

system information

 3D tube ID scanning

MicroCam-3D tube ID scanner, a non-contact optical measurement system, provides micron-precision 3D characterization of tube and bore interiors. Benefits: complete geometry of structures up to 30” long, capability to survey every detail (chamfers, rifling, grooves, lands, edge breaks, etc.), fully configurable automated digital inspection, detection of micron-size dimensional or surface defects (porosities, cracks, scratches), surface roughness acquisition, and more.
