Abstract : A NON-CONTACT VIDEO INSPECTION SYSTEM HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AND IMPLEMENTED FOR INSPECTION OF SMALL PARTS (SMALLER THAN 12 INCHES BY 10 INCHES BY 6 INCHES). The system uses a computer which processes the video image. Edge definition is determined through an algorithm which locates the point of maximum contact. Parts are located on a movable table, with table motion programmed through a user-friendly menu. Once a program is established for a particular part, the program can be rerun any number of times desired. Part inspection time has been reduced from hours to minutes. Keywords: Noncontact measurement; Video inspection; Three dimensional measurement. (jhd)
