THE CHALLENGES OF COORDINATE METROLOGY IN THE CONTROL OF DIMENSIONAL AND GEOMETRICAL SPECIFICATIONS OF TECHNICAL COMPONENTS IN THE NEW PARADIGM OF THE INDUSTRY 4.0

Fernando Augusto Machado Ferreira, Hélder António Gonçalves Guerra

Abstract


The production of highly complex technical components with a large number of specifications requires companies to have expeditious means of control to carry out the conformity assessment. In this context, the metrology is an important resource in support of innovation and development processes and production processes, and allows monitoring of technological progress according to the principles of industry 4.0. In companies, the need to guarantee the reliability of the production process, ensuring dimensional and geometrical compliance of the technical components, requires to metrology technical resources increasingly sophisticated, able to ensuring a good performance of the metrological function. Given the need to ensure compliance of the dimensional and geometrical specifications of the technical components, these can be controlled with coordinate measuring machines, a technology that promotes rapid controls and with the capacity to generate a large volume of data, facilitating interaction with the production process, seeking to guarantee their conformity.
