Coordinate measuring machines provide the most flexible technical solutions for dimensional measuring. Due to the possibility of combining several sensors in one machine, multisensor coordinate measuring machines are of particular advantage. When choosing the sensors for an application, the conditions of the measurement object, such as the dimensions of the features to be measured, surface characteristics as well as required accuracy, must be taken into consideration. The talk gives a short overview over the basic priciples of available optical and tactile sensors for coordinate measuring technology. Realization examples for selected sensor principles in combination with modern multisensor coordinate measuring machines are presented and several application possibilites are explained. The focus is on optical sensors, which allow area measurements of workpiece surfaces on special tactile sensors for microstructures.
