Three-dimensional measurement of large parts

Three-dimensional measurement of large parts is a critical process in various industries, and portable measuring arms are commonly used for this purpose.

These arms are equipped with high-precision probes and can be easily moved around the object, making them suitable for measuring large and complex surfaces. Unlike traditional Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs), which are restricted by their table size and bridge height, portable measuring arms offer greater flexibility and mobility, making them ideal for measuring large-scale objects during production. They require powerful software for accurate measurements.

Various techniques, such as laser scanning, are employed in state-of-the-art 3D surface metrology for large-scale objects. These techniques enable non-contact and high-precision measurements of complex surfaces.
