Shape and Dimension Control

The portable TRITOP system supports 3D coordinate measuring on objects of almost any size. It is ideally suited to verify the geometry and dimensions of machinery and utility vehicles. Computed 3D coordinates can be aligned with a CAD model to reveal any deviations from the design and to identify problems such as warp and bending. The fast and flexible measuring system can be operated by a single person and allows on-site verification of shapes and dimensions, without having to move vehicles into a garage. As the results are stored digitally, distances, angles, GD&T, etc., can always be subjected to further analysis at a later stage.

Vibration Analysis

The dynamic 3D testing system ARAMIS analyzes the behavior of vehicles in operation to detect sources of unwanted vibrations. Vehicles can be observed in real time under different conditions, such as varying mechanical loads, temperatures or speeds. Based on digital image correlation (DIC) technology, ARAMIS carries out full-field and point-based measurements for the analysis of deformation, displacement, acceleration, speed and trajectories, replacing conventional extensometers and acceleration sensors. The captured 3D displacements are used for vibration analysis. ARAMIS is the system of choice for root cause analysis of vibrations to optimize passenger comfort and safety.

Features of ARAMIS

  • Non-contact measuring principle
  • No wiring of accelerometers required
  • Fast setup and calibration of the sensors
  • Compact dimensions of the sensors
  • Ultra-light and lasting measurement targets
  • Synchronous measurement of many points in 3D – thus, points can be measured also unsteadily
  • 3D displacement results for each measuring point
