Measuring systems are used when flat work pieces need to be measured geometrically and two-dimensionally. Thanks to industrial cameras and image processing, measuring systems become purely optical systems, which can test whether the contours, angle or radii correspond without having to touch the work piece. Furthermore, measuring systems are designed to recognise defects, such as breaks, missing bores etc. In many measuring systems, the work piece is positioned between the industrial camera and a light source ("transmitted light"), which results in sharper edges and optimal measuring precision.
Example applications in measuring systems:
- Coordinate measuring machines
- Hardness testers
