The requirements on the manufacturing quality of turbine parts in the aerospace industry are extremely high. However, to ensure that the three-dimensional shape of the manufactured parts lies within desired tolerances is often difficult due to the size of the parts and the necessity to measure at very high resolution.
- Understand the principles of the Focus-Variation 3D measurement technology and how it can be used for automatic measurements on large complex parts using a 3D sensor placed on a robot
- Explain why it is necessary to analyse the local 3D curvature on turbine parts and which mathematical algorithms are suitable to automatically classifiy whether parts are OK/NOTOK
- Describe the difficulties in defect analysis on turbine blades and outline a solution for this problem based on high resolution 3D measurement with automatic surface defect analysis
