Contactless 3D measurement with multi-point sensors
Heye International’s Mark Ziegler and Gerd Schütz discuss the importance of wall thickness measurement in the high speed manufacture of lightweight glass containers and the use of CHRocodile chromatic confocal sensors from Precitec Optronik GmbH in Heye cold end inspection machines.

Medical Technology: Wall Thickness Measurement of Balloon Catheter
It is almost impossible for the wall thickness of balloons and thin-walled tubes (from which balloon catheters are manufactured) to be measured from the inside. The wall thicknesses can merely be estimated mechanically. But a simple solution exists in the form of optical noncontact measuring techniques which offer thickness measurements as a starting point, because these techniques offer so much more.
Wall thickness measurement for non-round ware
Heidi Olson describes an optical probe, designed by Precitec Optronik for the wall thickness measurement of non-round containers. Using a specialized optical design, the probe enables measurement at angles more than double that possible with other techniques. This is advantageous for both rotating measurement of non-rounds, as well wall thickness determination on highly decorated containers.
