Paper Abstract

The methodology of phase encoded reflection measurements has become a valuable tool for the industrial inspection of components with glossy surfaces. The measuring principle provides outstanding sensitivity for tiny variations of surface curvature so that sub-micron waviness and flaws are reliably detected. Quantitative curvature measurements can be obtained from a simple approach if the object is almost flat. 3D-objects with a high aspect ratio require more effort to determine both coordinates and normal direction of a surface point unambiguously. Stereoscopic solutions have been reported using more than one camera for a certain surface area. This paper will describe the combined double camera steady surface approach (DCSS) that is well suited for the implementation in industrial testing stations
