RCT licenses optical-triangulation technology to WKYO
Research Corporation Technologies (Tucson, AZ), an independent technology management organization, has exclusively licensed a laser optical-triangulation sensor to WYKO Corp. (Tucson, AZ) for use in products for noncontact measurement of position or profile. Conventional triangulation devices used in industrial monitoring applications provide a measurement range of 0.25-8 in. This device improves accuracy by using a exact nonlinear equation for processing measurement data. It can be used in sensing, inspection, and control applications in foundries, highways, robotic welding, and food packaging.
