The three-coordinate measuring machine is a device that measures the physical coordinates of an object in several discrete positions on the surface of the object, with a contact or optical sensor. The Metrology Laboratory has two calibrated, "bridge" type, three-coordinate measuring machines that have a resolution of 1 micron and allow measurements to be made within a volume of approximately half a cubic meter. The machines are installed on benches isolated from the rest of the building to ensure that they are not affected by external vibrations.
In the Dimensional Metrology Laboratory it is verified that the manufactured parts meet the required design specifications.
Portable high precision contact measurement equipment
The mechanical engineering team of the IAC has experience and knowledge to undertake the design, manufacture and assembly of high precision structures, mechanisms and opto-mechanical systems
