Laser scanning with CMM systems

  • 23-Dec-2008 02:38 EST

Laser Design's 3-D laser scanning technology will be integrated with CMM systems from Wenzel-Xspect. This parnership enables noncontact, high-speed inspection and reverse engineering applications along with precise coordinate measuring machine capability. The system features SLP laser line scanning probes with CMM technology that includes a Renishaw PH-10 indexing head and an integrated rotary fourth-axis stage, providing automated six-axis scanning for accurate measurement of complex parts and assemblies. It significantly reduces problems of missing data on irregularly shaped surfaces, and it enables exact digital replication of complex geometries.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
Researchers from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory's Optical Sciences Division and Material Science Division have detected acoustic emissions from cracks in riveted lap joints using a distributed feedback fiber laser-acoustic emission sensor.
