  1. SBIR Phase I: In Situ Three-dimensional Surface Roughness Gauge

    SBC: 4 D Technology Corporation            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate feasibility of the first metrology system capable of quantifying surface roughness in three dimensions in situ in production environments. Current shop floor systems are almost entirely two-dimensional stylus-based systems that are fragile, incapable of measuring complex geometries and have high cost of ownership. A shop-floo ...
