Inspectors attempting to quantify defects and fine-scale features on precision machined surfaces are often limited by the capabilities and form factors of existing measurement techniques. Inspectors most often rely on imprecise and inaccurate visual comparison tools or pin gauges to determine the geometry of surface features. This paper will describe key attributes of a metrology system for quantification of small features in a production environment and present critical performance tests on the system including vertical and lateral resolution and correlation with other techniques. Additionally, various new applications will be discussed which are fundamentally enabled through access to a portable, vibration-immune, system that is both quantitative and easy-to-use.
