Large volume metrology applications

Project: EU project

Project Details


Improving large-scale dimensional measurements for manufacturing.

Ability to measure size, location, orientation and shape of large objects is a critical requirement in many high value industries.
Project delivers a range of improved, reliable and accurate measuring systems for operation as large volume metrology tools.
VTT MIKES develops advanced methods for tracking moveable or static objects and a spectroscopic method to measure effective temperature along an optical path up to 50 m in industrial conditions.
Call 2017: Metrology for Industry
This project has received funding from the EMPIR programme co-financed by the Participating States and from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
