Alignment Strategy for Complex Part Geometries


When developing a CMM measurement program, alignments are necessary to form a stable frame of reference for the workpiece to be measured. Non-standard geometries with complex surfaces, such as a jet engine turbine airfoil, can be aligned by using datum target points defined on a print or model.

This 30-minute Webinar demonstrates the datum target point alignment strategy on an airfoil using CALYPSO software and shows two ways to align complex part geometries.

Topics include:

  • Introduction to datum targets
  • Validation of datum targets
  • Simplified datums from datum targets

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
