What is multi-sensor metrology?

Share This Post

Multi-sensor metrology is an essential tool for the manufacturing industry. Manufactured parts need to be measured to ensure they meet the original design intent. The versatility and flexibility of OGP UK’s multi-sensor technology has rapidly enhanced measurement and inspection processes across the engineering and manufacturing market, in key industry’s including; aerospace, automotive and medical.

What is multi-sensor metrology?

Multi-sensor metrology is a modern measurement technology that integrates and utilises multiple sensors  to collect critical dimensions and complex properties of a component in a single program. Each sensor is designed to capture specific aspects of the feature being measured, allowing for a more comprehensive and accurate assessment and reporting of the component.

Multi-sensor metrology uses a variety of contact and non-contact sensors to achieve the most detailed and accurate measurements of a component. Non-contact sensors (i.e., optics and lasers) measure the component without any physical contact. They measure linear dimensions and 3D profiles to capture and analyse data from the components.  Contact sensors (i.e., touch probes) physically touch the object in order to measure features that optical and non-contact sensors may not be able to see (i.e., internal features, side profiles on volumetric parts).
