LaserGauge Technology - Triangulation

The LaserGauge® acquires a 2-D contour of the surface to be measured, much like a linear “point cloud”, such that all of the points line up in the same measurement plane. In a typical LaserGauge®, up to 1280 points in a contour can be acquired. Since these contours are taken at a fixed scan width, the point spacing in the contour is dependent upon the scan width and the number of sample points. For example, for a 1 inch scan width with 500 points per scan, the sample spacing of the contour is 0.002”. Typical depth resolution is 0.001” for a 1” scan, but can be as small as 0.0002” for smaller scan widths.
