TECH8: Mechatronic Rapid Prototyping MEMS Device for a Precision Dual-Axis Surface Angular Measurement (SAM)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Rapid prototyping for a state of the art precision dual-axis Surface Angular Measurement (SAM) tool was developed in <10 days for an industrial manufacturing research need for dual-axis tilt measurement. Precision inclinometers are abundant, however; meeting custom needs for size, weight, axes, accuracy, precision, logging, display, and battery management into one design excluded various off-the-shelf devices.  Based on mechatronic design principles and rapid prototyping MEMS, a functional sensor design was achieved at low cost and minimal time.  A successful result with high confidence achieved a precision of <+/-0.058°, an accuracy of <+/-0.099° within a +/- 4°range.

Attendee benefits include:
• Discussion of rapid prototyping MEMS applications for precision measurement.
• End-User’s discussion on quality functional prototypes for sensor applications for industry.
• Detailed discussion of how to build a precision dual-axis inclinometer for acceptable gage
performance with small inexpensive modular components.
