Optical measurement of a faulty gear shaftMeasurement Report

Gear shaft malfunction inspection with the optical CMM machine

The measuring object in this measurement report is a faulty gear shaft, measured with the  optical CMM machine µCMM and a rotation unit (µCMM Real3D). In order to analyze the malfunction of this gear shaft part, the following parameters need to be measured: 

  • coaxiality of gearing in respect to shaft
  • outer diameter of gearing and shaft areas
  • shaft lengths
  • profile & areal roughness on the tooth flank
  • parameters to qualify the gearing itself
