Paper Abstract

Conventional gaging methods have been used for all sorts of measurements for many years and have been completely satisfactory in most applications. However, there is a growing number of cases where special gaging methods must be used for one reason or another. These special methods include optics, magnetics, pneumatics, hydraulics and several others. In some cases these methods have a direct mechanical readout while in others they convert the measurement to a electrical signal and condition it to provide additional information about the measurement. The gaging method presented in this paper uses fiber optic light lines to provide information about the measurement.
