Grale Technologies has conquered the elusive challenge of synchronizing metrology instruments with dynamic machine tools. Dynamic synchronization provides metrological repeatability independent of machine tool scan direction, speed and acceleration. Previous state of the art required machine tools to come to rest to provide a repeatable measurement. The AIM system spatially synchronizes metrology data to within one micron of uncertainty. Precision, dynamic synchronization will bring high speed characterization to the points of production. Grale Technologies will evolve its point of production scanning capability to include surface and subsurface characterization and spatial registration of associated data. Modern eddy current and ultra-sound instrument readings will be used to locate and characterize surface and sub-surface anomalies. AIM will feed multi-sensor data into the digital thread for future manufacturing activities and will catalyze the rapid, digital based autonomous manufacturing decisions of the future.
