Paper Abstract

The gathering of information by optical methods permits rapid and non-disturbing intervention at the level of the elements being tested. The measurements can be made dynamically (rapid sampling) and in difficult environments. In general the data taken must be treated so as to permit exploitation in real time, and this in a flexi-ble form so as to be adaptable to different needs. The system proposed achieves an optimized synthesis of the present technological possibilities by using, as an optronic captor, point detector cameras coupled to a piloting and treatment unit using a micro-processor. The material is entirely-static. Besides its duties of dimensional testing (surveillance of production line), the system can be connected to the production tool, in order to constantly optimize the tolerances. The simultaneous control of several production lines is possible. The profitability of the system is assured by the gain in material, decrease in rejection rate and savings on laborious tasks.
