Werth Inc., a manufacturer of optical and multi-sensor coordinate measuring machines (CMM), introduces its patented "OnTheFly" method for rapid measurement with image processing. Werth ScopeCheck and VideoCheck coordinate measuring machines can now take measurements while in constant motion. By flashing the light sources, blurriness due to the motion is eliminated. Start-Stop operation is no longer needed. Measurement time is drastically reduced (up a factor of 10) and the efficiency of the measuring machine is increased.
