Tight tolerances and automation demands in micro-machining
In high-precision machining operations, workpieces shaped with electrical discharge machining (EDM) or by laser cutting must be verified against strict specifications. As precision demands grow, so too grows the need to improve our capability in measuring the dimensional and finish characteristics of the machined workpieces.
Additionally, in many high-precision machine shops, rapid and automated 3D metrology is now essential, and in-process inspection is increasingly the norm.
