Propeller

Task

Otto Piening - a leading manufacturer of ship propellers - was looking for a powerful coordinate measurment solution for the measurement of ship propellers in manufacturing, research and engineering, for repairs as well as for reverse engineering tasks. Linearis3D Photogrammetry Professional is highly portable, offers an accuray down to 30 microns and measure "hidden" geometries of ship propellers that can hardly be reached by mechanical solutions. The size of the propellers is unlimited.

Procedure

The customer tagged the propeller with self adhesive markers at the relevant positions. About 100 or more photographs of the object were taken and evaluated on site. The total measuring time is about 30min. Thanks to the integrated CAD comparison function deviations can be detected immediately.

Results and benefits

Otto Piening was able to streamline its measuring process in manufacturing, R&D and service based on the advantages of optical measurement technology and the Linearis3D Photogrammetry system.
