Automated metrology systems typically integrate temperature and humidity logging sensors into inspection systems, initiating a fault code if predetermined limits are exceeded. Other environmental options such as active vibration monitoring and logging, or custom air blow-off of instrumentation in dusty environments allows automated systems to be installed right on the production floor.
​For example, the DWFritz ZeroTouch non-contact platform features embedded real-time environmental monitoring for temperature, humidity, airflow and other machine controller parameters. If the machine senses a deviation from the set parameters, it automatically signals a fault state or enters a warning condition.
The ultimate goal of automated metrology platforms is meeting requirements for gauge capability and machine uptime while performing millions of simultaneous micron level measurements in 24/7 production environments.
