As the global manufacturing market continues to get more competitive, it is important to ensure that the factory is running at a peak level of efficiency. Any downtime due to process related malfunctions is considered nonvalue-added downtime directly impacting company profitability.
In materials and component testing the range of applications where extensometers are used is extremely diverse. As a result, the technical requirements for these devices are multifaceted, and there is no single device that satisfies all needs.
Multisensor measurement systems are capable of collecting geometric data from 3-D parts using various combinations of measurement technologies. For the most part, such systems are based on vision systems made more versatile by the addition of tactile probes as well as lasers, white light and other devices.
