IMTS 2022 Conference: Optical Comparators vs. Multi-Sensor Vision Systems - Practical Considerations for Choosing the Right Metrology System

How to choose the right metrology system.

August 11, 2022

About the presentation
There are a multitude of considerations when choosing the right metrology system, such as an optical comparator or a multi-sensor vision system. Following some straight-forward guidelines for selecting a system will serve machinists and quality control (QC) inspectors well. It’ll also help avoid making costly procurement mistakes. Primary factors include examining budget, application requirements such as accuracy and speed, facility environment, QC data collection objectivity vs subjectivity, and user skill. It’s also important to review the capabilities of the metrology system's software suite and how its features complement the user's application requirements. Automation solutions should also be a consideration, as automation is increasingly being deployed to improve productivity and throughput, such as capturing discrete points on a part's profile to be built into the inspection process as programmable steps.
