Three dimensional coordinate metrology is a firmly established technique in industry. Scanning technology is now widely used in coordinate metrology and is increasingly used for the measurement of small features. This paper presents a new real shape approach to closest point inspection involutes curve of gear tooth by coordinate measuring machinery (CMM). This method aims to select the most likely contact point for each successive arc by applying geometrical criteria and a fuzzy logic estimator. This method is particularly, but not exclusively, suitable for the metrology of features with small radii as well as metrological discontinuities. It does not require obtaining the normal vector traditionally used for probe tip correction. Elapsed time is 144.09 s. Tests have been done on limps of machine tool speed (pinion type cutter), which is highly applied in our country.
Key words: CMM / gear / scan probe / fuzzy logic
