Novacam metrology videos

The videos below present just a few of the many applications of our technology.  We encourage you to also visit our Youtube channel to view these and additional videos.

Cylinder measurement

Duration: 01:21

See how Novacam BoreInspect measures a cylinder bore in a non-contact automated manner, providing micron-precision 3D measurements of the interior. Configuration with 18 mm diameter rotational probe is ideal for 5 to 15 cm (2″ to 6″) diameter bores such as engine cylinders, actuator cylinders, etc.

Chatter measurement

Duration: 02:15

See a non-contact chatter gauge built by an integrator using Novacam RS2 rotational scanner, Novacam Chatter Analysis Software, and a robotic arm.  This temporary automated gauge was used to measure the chatter in 16,000 turbo shafts over 4 weeks while the client was troubleshooting a faulty manufacture line.

Flatness measurement

Duration: 02:00

Learn how, inspecting with a galvo raster scanner, the SurfaceInspect acquires a mating surface of a valve body and calculates its flatness parameters.

Edge radius measurement

Duration: 01:53

See how Microcam-3D profilometer, equipped with with a non-contact fiber-based optical galvo scanner, characterizes tool edges in 3D and with micron-precision.

Airfoil measurement

Duration: 01:43

Watch how Microcam-3D airfoil scanner, a non-contact CMM, delivers micron-precision 3D optical measurements of hard-to-reach places.

Turbine blade inspection

Duration: 01:51

See how RS2 rotational scanner acquires turbine blades with its spinning non-contact optical probe.  The RS advances the spinning probe into the complex geometrical structures of turbine blades to acquire their dimensional geometry down to the micron.

Valve-body bore ID measurement

Duration: 02:02

Watch a demonstration of a fully-automated digital inspection of valve body bores, where RS2, a non-contact rotational scanner, spins and advances a small-diameter optical probe to  measure the inside diameters (IDs) of these bores – down to the micron.

3D Tube ID measurement

Duration: 01:51

Learn how Microcam-3D tube ID scanner (TubeInspect), a non-contact optical measurement system, provides micron-precision 3D characterization of tube interiors.
