Optical measurement is ideal for a wide range of part and feature types. Where optics cannot image the feature of interest, other types of sensors can be deployed.

Video imaging is best for measuring features defined by edges. Diameters, intersections, widths and depths are all commonly measured using vision technology.

Laser sensors have the ability to generate data points very quickly. In combination with moving stages, lasers can be scanned over a surface or area to measure forms, contours and irregular shapes.

Inside features, such as a bored hole or cavity, may require a tactile sensor to probe the inside areas of a part where vision and laser sensors cannot reach. Touch trigger probes, scanning probes and articulating probe heads provide access to a wide range of internal dimensions that could not be measured using optics alone.
