Abstract:

The application of inspection procedures, ancillary equipment and software programs to interface with computerized coordinate measuring machines cmm provides a new measuring system to minimize manual inspection and recording of component parts of a weapon system. Master tapes were generated for inspection of cannon components that can provide tape print out in metric andor inch mode. Manual inspection and computation are time consuming and subject to human error. The automatic computation that is obtainable with this system, correlated with performance data of components will provide more feedback data to the engineer which will be useful in the improvement of cannon component design.
