Propeller Blade Profiling using Laser Sensors

A major North American propeller manufacturer and service company selected a long-range triangulation sensor to measure the profile of its propellers and controllable tip blades during the manufacturing process.  Non-contact measuring, like that afforded by laser sensors, is desirable in propeller manufacturing because the fixed measuring device can be installed with a large standoff away from bulky and/or moving parts.
