Does your AS9100 system include requirements for in-process geometric validation of critical part characteristics and tooling? Do you need to quickly gather geometric measurement data for tooling and fixtures being used on the production floor, and to be quickly re-qualified? To validate surfaces and trim edges on composite parts? What about drilling and/or assembling critical aircraft components precisely aligned to the specific part or aircraft datum? Want to align and calibrate motions, such as wing flaps, in all 6 degrees of freedom (6DOF)? We can help you achieve these.
Metronor systems provide complete Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) capabilities anywhere you need them, with complete setup in minutes. For example, measurements can be performed on moving parts, such as a fuselage that is being worked on. Or you can effectively measure as-built conditions such as a door opening, and then use this data to perform reverse engineering of a mating part for perfect fitting.
MEASURE HIDDEN FEATURES AND POINTS THAT CAN’T BE REACHED
Our systems have the ability to measure features and points that are hidden and can’t be reached with other portable measurement systems (like laser trackers and articulated arms) without device repositioning. This provides a significant benefit in terms of cost savings and accuracy, adding substantial value to your product and setting yourself ahead of your competitors.
MEASURE MULTIPLE POINTS AT THE SAME TIME
Competitive measuring systems are limited by the fact that they can only measure one point at a time. Metronor has the unique ability to measure multiple points at precisely the same moment in time. Because of this unique ability, you can detect deflection, relative movement, repeatability, and precise angular orientations. This also provides the ability to perform jig-less assembly of two critical parts or subassemblies relative to each other.
FAST SET-UP, NO WARM-UP TIME, EASY USAGE
Additional advantages of Metronor’s systems for the aerospace industry include: fast set-up of the cameras, no warm-up time, and stress-free use of the Lightpen for a wide range of probing. No repositioning and subsequent loss of accuracy is usually required (leap-frogging). No stickers are needed, no deep knowledge of photogrammetry required.
Most Aerospace applications take advantage of Metronor’s DUO, DUET or QUAD measurement systems to achieve maximum accuracy, flexibility and productivity. For some specific applications such as measuring angular orientation, Metronor’s SOLO system may be sufficient.
DUO is Metronor’s flagship portable CMM system and with our patented principle for Electro-Optical Coordinate Measurements combines large volume measurement with increased accuracy for the widest range of applications. Read DUO specifications.
As the most flexible measurement solution on the market, DUET is a DUO system that has the necessary components to be split into two completely independent SOLO systems when required. Read DUET specifications.
QUAD is the perfect solution for measuring all around a large 3D object. Two pairs of cameras measuring in a common coordinate system allow full freedom to probe anywhere inside the measurement volume. Metronor’s QUAD eliminates any ‘shadow’ on the opposite side and avoids the need for leap-frogging or excessively long probing tools. Read QUAD specifications.
