Part Deformation Analysis

One application for which PRO CMM measurement solutions are particularly suited is part deformation analysis. Based on optical technology and capable of capturing both dynamic and static deformations, PRO CMM systems can track up to 512 targets with rates of up to 4600 measurements per second. With specially designed targets attached to points of interest, you can record the static position of a part. Customized software can then measure the magnitude and direction of deformations in the part. This makes PRO CMM  ideal for many applications, including fixture spring-back, thermal distortion, and wind loading deformation analysis. Custom-built systems are available to meet your exact needs, making this unique 3D measurement tool the replacement for conventional displacement and acceleration sensors.



Improve your shop-floor metrology results with this portable optical tracker that provides the highest accuracy and largest measurement volume of any Optical Coordinate Measuring system in its class.
