Large Volume Metrology
The inspection of large objects calls for a dedicated metrology solution and technology. The Nikon Laser Radar -based on innovative non-contact laser technologies offers accurate and contactless inspection capabilities that are used within a wide variety of large volume measurement and inspection applications: aircraft fuselage section analysis, tool assembly and alignment inspection as well as the inspection of aircraft engine inlet cowls and checking the geometry of aircraft wing.
Laser Radar can be used anywhere a laser tracker is applied. The economic equation is in favor of Laser Radar because it does not require any type of handheld SMR (spherically mounted retro-reflector), regardless whether inspecting geometric features or freeform surfaces. This means that a single person can operate the Laser Radar system in manual mode, or start an automatic inspection job that runs unattended.
The Laser Radar is being used in many different aerospace applications today, reducing costs and improving quality:
1. Mold & Tooling
3. Barrel sections
4. Wings / Flaps / Tailfins
5. Wing to body join
6. Flight control surfaces
