Field of application
Regular checking of section III, EF 2000
Periodic checking of all jigs and fixtures
Acquisition of 3D data and transfer to current 3D CAD program (reverse engineering)
Scope for application has been approved for almost all parts and fixtures throughout the programme.
Choice of system
To make an informed decision and choice of coordinate measurement systems, a comprehensive examination was carried out as part of a diploma project. A number of laser tracker and photogrammetry 3D coordinate measurement systems were tested against reference objects, examined and evaluated. Leica’s laser tracker LTD500 emerged as the best measurement system according to a benefit analysis (VDI2212) and economic value (VDI2225).
