A method known as laser metrology aids in the analysis and optimization of aircraft structures. Composite materials, for example, are being integrated into the aircraft sector, which demands careful treatment.
Many pricey, sensitive parts, some with delicate surfaces, are found in aircraft. Laser metrology makes it possible to examine delicate surfaces like wings and tailfins. The laser can also detect differences in closely woven surfaces.
LASER METROLOGY'S BENEFITS
Automated measurement procedures reduce the time it takes to inspect aircraft parts. Because of its small size and portability, it may be used to collect data for measurement and analysis at any point during the manufacturing process. Reporting is simplified, allowing you to conduct more comparisons based on location, cylindricity, parallelism, and other factors. The mechanical architecture of aircraft laser metrology allows it to make accurate movements over the things being scanned. Because the laser is unrestricted, it can scan and conform to any material. Aerial laser metrology also enables: • In-process component examination of all surfaces
• More data was collected in a fraction of the time.
What Are Laser Trackers and How Do They Work?
A laser tracker is a tool for measuring the three-dimensional characteristics of huge objects during the manufacturing process or for aligning massive industrial machinery. Laser trackers are widely employed in the aircraft sector, as well as the automobile and shipbuilding industries, to align aircraft wings during the production process. A laser tracker's operation is straightforward: It calculates two angles as well as a distance. A laser beam is sent from the tracker to a retro-reflective target that is held against the object to be monitored. The light reflected off the target retraces its course and enters the tracker in the exact spot it departed. Retro-reflective targets come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but the spherically mounted retro-reflector is the most common (SMR). Some of the light that re-enters the tracker goes to a distance meter, which estimates the distance between the tracker and the SMR.
