Version 1.80 - December 8, 2012

Video Topic: Effective highly reflective aluminum scanning

This is a proof-of-concept video for a 1/2" highly reflective aluminum tube. The goal is to demonstrate repeatability better than 300 microns.

The result was a range from 80 to 180 microns (0.003 to 0.007") maximum deviation.

This video also shows the best way to scan a highly reflective tube end - and how to be sure the scan is good.
