The instrument consists of a 2D measuring system (dimensional and surface control by a telecentric camera) and a thickness measuring system (by a laser). 2D measuring: the operator places the parts to be inspected under the camera which provides two images without distortion. The first image is processed with a dimensional tool, the second one is processed with a defect searching tool.
Thickness measuring: the operator places the parts onto a moving plate through the laser station. The acquired data is transferred and available to the operator thanks to a graphical interface.
