Highly accurate optical 3D measurement systems

The optical µCMM

μCMM is the most accurate purely optical micro-coordinate measuring system in its class. Users combine advantages from tactile coordinate measuring technology and optical surface measuring technology and measure the dimension, position, shape and roughness of components with only one sensor. The optical CMM offers high geometric accuracy of several optical 3D measurements in relation to each other, enabling the measurement of small surface details on large components and precisely determining the position of these individual measurements in relation to each other.


Cobots combine a collaborative 6-axis robot and a robust optical 3D measurement sensor to deliver traceable and repeatable high-resolution measurements, even in production. They require no prior knowledge of metrology and make handling, programming, and executing measurement series easy. This is made possible by intuitive hand-guided controls for the teach-in of measurement series, automatic measurement evaluation, and a no-enclosures safety concept.

Dimensional metrology to increase efficiency and safety of turbine engine components

Non-contact, dimensional measurement together with industrial automation capabilities enable a number of time-saving measures in quality assurance. Check out the following material to find out more details on applications with the optical coordinate measurement system µCMM or the Cobots, a combination of high resolution optical 3D metrology and collaborative robotics!

Measurement Report

Turbine blade measurement using optical Focus-Variation technique

The measuring object is a turbine blade, measured with the µCMM and a rotation unit (Real3D). In order to analyze the turbine blade, the following parameters are measured:

  • Geometry of a cooling hole
  • Defects
  • Airfoil analysis (leading & trailing edge radii, form deviation, profile twist, etc.)
  • Fir tree geometry
  • Profile & areal roughness
