Probe the dimensions of bores in seconds
Many medium and large parts have deep and complex structures that need to meet high quality requirements and the ever-demanding designs of modern manufacturing. Until now, the in-line inspection of such structures with micrometer accuracy has remained elusive. It is especially the case for bores, as accessing dimensional information deep into cylindrical structures while delivering micrometer-level accuracy is a significant challenge. Leveraging their unique coaxial configuration and high accuracy, OptoComb 3D scanners can be combined with a 45° mirror to successfully address this issue.
XTIA has thus developed the OptoComb V-mirror system that combines an OptoComb 3D scanner with a reversed V-shaped mirror translating within the structure along its z-axis. With this system, XTIA brings a new dimensional inspection solution to the table, scanning the inner walls of bores, cylinders and other complex structures with high accuracy, and enabling the GD&T analysis of a large range of manufactured parts.
