Key Words: manual metrology, edge detection, precision
Definition:The examination of parts with a manual microscope to determine precise measurements at high magnifications
Measurement systems can either be manual (manual metrology) or automated. Although automated measuring systems are becoming more popular, manual set-ups are currently more predominant. Manual measurement systems, have fixed optics, are often situated on the bench-top and require manual adjustment of focus and part positioning.
New technology aids the automatic correction of measurement errors caused by differences in the depth of focus between different objectives.
Data and image processing are carried out through configuration with supporting software and enables the observation, capture, storage and management of digital images.
Manual metrology is principally used in precision manufacturing industries for the measurement of the size, shape and edge detection of various work pieces such as electronic circuiting and optical components.
