The MikroCAD system measures complex geometries of cutting edges in seconds. Using a high-resolution charge-coupled device (CCD) camera and digital stripe projection, the optical measuring system generates highly accurate 3-D data in the 1-micron range. Measurable geometries include radii, angles, chamfers, chipping and wear along the tool edge. In addition, the system has the ability to conduct pre-programmed multiple measurements.
