Production Measurement and Testing Technology

The core task of production measurement and testing technology is the acquisition, characterization and function-oriented interpretation of geometrical deviations of industrially manufactured workpieces with a view to ensuring component quality by regulating the production process.

A current research focus is, for example, the research and further development of optical 3D coordinate measuring technology based on fringe projection sensors, which has a wide range of applications in the industrial environment due to its high resolution, measuring speed and flexibility. Specific research projects are currently concerned with researching an endoscopic fringe projection measuring system for measuring wear of forming tools as part of the development of sheet metal forming as a new type of manufacturing technology, as well as the extensive assessment of the condition of engine components under stress with a view to researching and developing suitable methods for component regeneration.

Another focus is the development and research of measurement and evaluation methods for optical 2D and 3D roughness measurement technology for the characterization of technical surfaces. For example, methods for the fusion of overlapping measurement fields and for the characteristic-based characterization of microstructured surfaces are currently being researched in various research projects based on measurement data sets recorded by means of chromatic-confocal sensor technology, confocal microscopy and white light interferometry.
