(57) Abstract:
(EN): Apparatus adapted to perform a method for measuring various properties of an object, the method comprising: - mounting a first measuring device to an end of an articulated arm coordinate measuring machine, - measuring three dimensional coordinates of a surface of an object using the first device, - mounting a second measuring device to the end of the articulated arm coordinate measuring machine, and - measuring a second property of the object using the second measuring device after the three dimensional coordinates have been measured.
(FR): L'invention concerne un appareil conçu pour effectuer un procédé de mesure de diverses propriétés d'un objet, le procédé consistant à : - monter un premier dispositif de mesure sur une extrémité d'une machine de mesure de coordonnées à bras articulé, - mesurer des coordonnées tridimensionnelles d'une surface d'un objet à l'aide du premier dispositif, - monter un deuxième dispositif de mesure sur l'extrémité de la machine de mesure de coordonnées à bras articulé, et - mesurer une deuxième propriété de l'objet à l'aide du deuxième dispositif de mesure après que les coordonnées tridimensionnelles ont été mesurées.
