Topographic Scanning with the New Chromatic Focus Line Sensor

Multidimensional distance sensors enable high point densities and measuring speeds.  Often, however, this comes at a cost of increased measurement uncertainty. Learn more about the new CFL Chromatic Focus Line Sensor.

Using multidimensional distance sensors, it is possible to capture the entire surface geometry ora partial region of the workpiece in a single measurement.  Conventional sensors, depending on their measurement principle, provide either high point density or high measuring speed.  When such sensors are used in coordinate measuring machines, large areas can be captured with high point density by merging several measurement point clouds.  Alternatively, regions of interest can be measured in workpiece coordinates and linked for analysis.
