Title (EN) PORTABLE COORDINATE MEASUREMENT MACHINE WITH ARTICULATED ARM
(FR) MACHINE PORTABLE DE MESURE DE COORDONNEES AVEC BRAS ARTICULE
Abstract:
(EN) A portable coordinate measurement machine (10) comprises an articulated arm (14) having jointed arm segments. The arm (14) includes joint assemblies which include at least two read heads in communication with a periodic pattern of a measurable characteristic, the pattern and read heads being positioned within the joint so as to be rotatable with respect to each other.
(FR) Cette invention concerne une machine portable de mesure de coordonnées (10) comprenant un bras articulé (14) doté de segments de bras à articulation. Le bras (14) comportent des ensembles articulation composé d'au moins deux têtes de lecture en communication avec motif périodique d'une caractéristique mesurable, le motif et les têtes de lecture à l'intérieur de l'articulation étant disposés de manière à pouvoir tourner l'un par rapport à l'autre.
