Where are optical systems
displacing tactile methods?


Vertical Focus Probing as a gamechanger
in measurement technology

April 22nd, 2021

What to expect:

Until now, geometries such as bores and vertical free-forms were hardly measurable optically. The lateral probing of components with vertical surfaces was limited to tactile measuring systems, CT solutions or complex special solutions. This changes with Vertical Focus Probing, an extension of the Focus Variation, which allows optical measurement of components with more than 90°. Component features such as bores, reference surfaces, contours, lengths, etc. can thus be measured with high accuracy, high resolution and short measuring times.

In the first part of the webinar, we will show you what is possible with Vertical Focus Probing, what limitations there are and, of course, why we can do all this.

In the second part, different components from various industries are verified. We will show you which component features can be measured optically with high precision and why tactile systems reach their limits here.

During a closing Q&A session, our team of presenters will be available to answer your questions live.
