Our Photogrammetry system measures coordinates of three-dimensional objects quickly and precisely

What is Photogrammetry?

Photogrammetry is a technique of taking measurements from photographs. The output of photogrammetry is a 3D model of a real-world object. A camera is positioned close to the subject and is typically hand-held or on a tripod. The output is 3D models, measurements and point clouds. Everyday cameras are used to model and measure engineering structures.

What can we offer?
  • Qualified and experienced design engineers, with a combined experience across multiple sectors of over 35 years.
  • When comparing the measured data with CAD data (IGES, VDA, STEP, Catia, ProE, UG …), the corresponding measuring reports are created in the familiar formats:
    • False-colour representation
    • Deviation of individual points as label
    • Sections, angles and distances
    • Diameters and flatness
    • Tables and lists
What can photogrammetry be used for?
  • Inspection of sheet metal parts and car bodies, e.g. in pilot production, process optimising, tool try-outs, start of series production or during random samples
  • Quality control of large objects, e.g. aircraft, ships, wind turbines, etc.
  • Verification of plastic parts, e.g. for first article inspection
  • Verification and recording of jigs and fixtures
  • Measuring of models and prototypes, e.g. vehicle interior and exterior design
  • Verification of tubes and wires with respect to their three-dimensional shape
  • Measuring trimming edges of two-dimensional sheet metal blanks
  • Deformation analysis of car and climatic chamber tests
  • Measuring of reference point fields
