Development of a reconstruction quality metric for optical three-dimensional measurement systems in use for hot-state measurement object
Optical Engineering: The Journal of SPIE
Optical three-dimensional (3-D) geometry measurements are state of the art when it comes to contactless quality control and maintenance of the shape of technical components that exclude tactile measurements due to filigree or internal structures. Optical inspection methods are also characterized by a fast and high-resolution 3-D inspection of complex geometries. And due to their noncontact principle, they can carry out measurements in places that would otherwise not be accessible due to harsh
... ible due to harsh environmental conditions or specimens such as hot forged parts. However, there are currently no methods to estimate the reconstruction quality for the optical 3-D geometry measurements of hot objects. The mainly used geometric measurement standards cannot be used for the characterization of hot measurements since the calibrated geometrical values are not transferable to high temperatures. For the development of such a metric, we present the fundamentals of the concepts and algorithms for an estimation of the reconstruction quality are presented and evaluated using a two-dimensional simulation model. The generated findings were applied to the 3-D geometry measurement of a hot object in a laboratory environment. The results are compared with general state-of-the-art reconstruction quality metrics. © The Authors. Published by SPIE under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 Unported License.
