What the Industry Needs
All parts on a production line are subject to three-dimensional verification, that can be done using either the systematic method or by random sampling. In aerospace, the quality control is generally quite comprehensive and requires a large number of measuring points.
Advantages of the HandyPROBE Solution
Portable measurement solutions are commonly used for this type of verification. Also, the alignment functionality and automation of the HandyPROBE ensure both systematic or random measurements with unsurpassed reliability and speed.
The automatic or assisted alignment, combined with the simplicity of this 3D CMM use, allows for complete inspection of a part in minutes as opposed to over an hour with traditional inspection solutions. The HandyPROBE has demonstrated its ability to deliver highly reliable results.
For large pieces, the function enabling the HandyPROBE's ability to increase its volume is particularly useful. When accuracy is crucial, it is possible to put reflectors on the equipment at locations previously measured with a laser tracker (periodic measurement, for example, annually) and the HandyPROBE re-aligns itself locally with the tracker's precision.
