Small and precise cones are one of the most important functional surfaces for valve seats of today's modern common rail injection systems for Diesel engines. We have investigated two concepts of interferometric systems for industrial examination of small-size conical geometries: white-light-interferometer with an endoscopic probe and a special formmeasuring- machine with an interferometric stylus. Endoscopic probes are critical for small and deep drillings, and the optical layout becomes very complex and expensive. To increase the universality of small size cone measuring systems, we followed the concept of a special scanning form measuring machine using a single-measuring-point interferometric stylus. We have performed first measurements and repeatability tests on the shop floor. Based on standard capability evaluation (Cgk and Cg) we have achieved the following measuring system capabilities: angle T< 0.07°, roundness T<0.3 μm, Pt Value <0.3 μm.
