Optical 3D coordinate measuring machine

Project description:

optical 3D coordinate measuring machine by RedLux

Example of measured deviations of total knee replacement geometry compared to CAD model

The RedLux non-contact CMM is based on 14 years of experience in precision non-contact form metrology. For the first time this technology has been applied to the measurement of artificial joints, giving precision 3D data for development and production.
