Abstract : The report describes a high speed dimensional tester using an automated non-contact inspection device and utilizing a computer. The inspection system consists of a helium-neon gas laser which is a high intensity light source that is of low cost and has a long life. It will also contain lenses to shape and form the light, light sensing photo-diodes, amplifier circuits, and corresponding logic circuits. The system is simple to operate and can be used in almost any environment providing the necessary laser safety precautions are taken.
