Trilion Quality System’s Founder and President, John Tyson, wrote a great article that was featured in Lightweighting World magazine. In the article, Tyson highlights how optical metrology, Digital Image Correlation (DIC) and photogrammetry are invaluable measurement methods. Companies like Ford, GM, and Boeing are just some of the industry leaders reaping the benefits of the technology.
The article details some of the many applications that this technology is being used for, for large corporations and small business alike. Tyson explains that “3D [DIC] is a finite element measurement and allows you to intuitively understand the material response of complex structures,” and it is playing an invaluable role in leaner and smarter ways to achieve more efficient and more accurate quality measurements.
ARAMIS is a “non-contact and material-independent measuring system” allowing you to track points in 3D space. The powerful software is able to “interpolate the 3D image down to 1/1000th of a pixel of the camera for incredible accuracy and resolution,” and Tyson details its in-situ uses in the article, including space applications, manufacturing, and automotive industry uses.
Ultimately, the article clearly articulates how optical metrology is a “better tool for our new world of advanced, non-homogeneous materials and structures, especially for additive manufacturing and composites,” allowing for structural testing to be a holistic process and one that can now be done in extreme conditions and hazardous environments due to ARAMIS’s contactless functionality.
Tyson explains that the holistic approach to optical metrology provided by Trilion products “greatly reduces costs, improves development schedules and overall quality,” of projects, allowing for technology to enhance your business.
