Paper Abstract

A personal computer based vision metrology system for non-contact measurement of nominally two-dimensional parts has been developed. Through use of the reflected image resulting from light incident at grazing incidence, it is possible to determine the correct dimensions even if burrs or other manufacturing defects are present on the end of the part. Thus the system can, for example, define the complete profile of short samples cut from a long aluminum extrusion without special sample preparation before measurement. In this paper the application of the technique to circular tubes is described in some detail and factors involved in its extension to more complex shapes are discussed.
