“A New Paradigm for Aero Engine Holes Inspection” – Case Study

A new “case study” article about the 5-axis 700 series VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator has just appeared in the September 2015 edition of Manufacturing Engineering – Aerospace & Defense 2015 Yearbook:

A New Paradigm for Aero Engine Hole Inspection

In this case study, Paradigm Precision (a large aerospace sub-contractor to GE, UT, Rolls Royce and many others) explains how they are using the VisionGauge® system to carry out 100% inspection of cooling holes on a wide range of complex 5-axis parts, including blades, vanes and heat shields.

They mention that they are achieving a repeatability of +/-0.0001″.
