Two of the most important questions discussed by many product manufacturers and suppliers are:
- Does the component meet the design specifications?
- Are series parts produced with consistent quality?
First the measuring instrument is positioned opposite the test object in the same coordinate system. This is realized with a simple best-fit transformation.
- Transformation via fixed reference points or geometries
- Transformation via freely selectable object points
Afterwards, the geometries and surfaces to be checked are measured and their actual data compared with the target data from the CAD model.
As a result, the following possibilities are available:
- Any geometries can be checked
- Specified sections can be generated
- Points can be checked for positional accuracy
- Deformations and production faults can be found
The results of the target-actual comparison are displayed clearly graphically and in tabular form. In the same way, adherence to tolerances and other GD+T requirements can be checked.
