A repeatable way of determining correct assembly of
tricky components

Gauging and profiling are used to verify the presence of components, identify surface defects, monitor planarity in flat parts and detect other manufacturing failures. They measure critical part dimensions and the construction and display of a graphical profile through the analysis of dimensional data.

Sciemetric’s sigPOD uses laser sensors, linear or rotary encoders or LVDTs to determine whether an assembled part meets the accepted standard for quality. Non-contact profile testing is often used as a simpler alternative to more complex vision systems and provides the repeatability crucial in accurate measurement.

See the application notes for some examples.
