Cylinder Measurement Case Study

A Better Solution for Snap Fit

After reviewing the initial data we found a solution to the ultimate problem: making sure machine lines produce consistent parts.

A Simple Start with Vision System

A customer needed the outside profile and radius of the snap fit measured on new cylinders.

We used our optical comparator and a vision system to get them the data they needed.

However, after talking through the data together, we realized the problem was bigger than they first anticipated. It wasn’t a problem with the cylinders, it was bigger – ensuring that their machine lines were producing parts with absolute consistency.

A Laser Scanner to the Rescue

With our laser scanner we were able to verify the physical readings and help them develop a better sense of what to do next with their machines.
