Profile projection system

Profile projection system

IODA has developed a system that allows to project the profile of an object for the examination, the projected object is enlarged 5 times (5X magnification).

The instrument is inserted in a production line, therefore the dimensions and the position of the components are constraints imposed by the customer.

The profile projection system consists of:


– Projector, consisting of a light source and a first lens system that parallels the light rays coming from the light source and which invest the piece to be controlled.

– A second lens system, called lens, which collects the image of the piece by enlarging it and sending it to the feedback screen.

An important feature of the profile projector is the multiplicity of controls that can be implemented, in fact:

  • It is possible to directly compare the enlarged image of a piece with a scale drawing arranged on the screen.
  • It is possible to measure directly on the screen the enlarged image of a piece with a ruler.

This project was developed in collaboration with Astronomical Observatory of Padova (INAF Padova).
