Paper Abstract

In macroscopic production processes several measuring methods are used to assure the quality of 3D parts. Definitely, one of the most widespread techniques is the fringe projection. It’s a fast and accurate method to receive the topography of a part as a computer file which can be processed in further steps, e.g. to compare the measured part to a given CAD file. In this article it will be shown how the fringe projection method is applied to a fiber-optic system. The fringes generated by a miniaturized fringe projector (MiniRot) are first projected onto the front-end of an image guide using special optics. The image guide serves as a transmitter for the fringes in order to get them onto the surface of a micro part. A second image guide is used to observe the micro part. It’s mounted under an angle relating to the illuminating image guide so that the triangulation condition is fulfilled. With a CCD camera connected to the second image guide the projected fringes are recorded and those data is analyzed by an image processing system.
