Abstract

Traditional manufacturing uses coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) or component-specific gauging for in-process and post-process inspection. In assessing the fitness for purpose of these measuring systems, it is necessary to evaluate the uncertainty associated with CMM measurement. However, this is not straightforward since the measurement results are subject to a large range of factors including systematic and environmental effects that are difficult to quantify. In addition, machine tool errors and thermal effects of the machine and component can have a significant impact on the comparison between on-machine measurement, in-process measurement and post-process inspection. Coordinate measurements can also be made in a gauging/comparator mode in which measurements of a work piece are compared with those of a calibrated master artefact, and many of the difficulties associated with evaluating the measurement uncertainties are avoided since many of the systematic effects cancel out. Therefore, the use of flexible gauging either as part of an automated or manually-served workflow is particularly beneficial.
