The Gi-360 high-speed laser measuring system by General Inspection is a 3D system with eight lasers positioned around the circumference of the parts. The system can measure all features to print tolerances at rates as much as 600 parts per minute. Standard features the machine measures include lengths, diameters, tapers, threads and straightness. The system is also equipped with eddy-current to detect cracks and the presence of heat-treatment.
