Triple-Axis, glass, transparent, and translucent—measure clear or translucent part diameter from three viewpoints, just as accurately as diameter of an opaque part. The three diameter measurements are coplanar and are separated by 60 degrees from each other.
With such products, laser light can bleed through the part making it appear to the system that there is more than one part present. In the illustration, extra segments of light are shown bleeding through the part in each axis.
Systems without proper hardware and software report this condition as an error. However, all of LaserLinc’s systems include the proper hardware and software, at no charge, so they are able to ignore the light bleeding through the product and report accurate measurements.
Note: any of the measurements shown for triple-axis may be applied to clear and translucent products.
