Monitoring Automotive Gap & Flush During Climate and Load Testing
EZ3D from EZ Metrology facilitates dimensional control in extreme environments to measure drift with flush and gap eliminating the need for a collection of gap and ﬂush gauges. EZ3D’s proven technology not only measures the change in gap and ﬂushness between two surfaces, but can also measure lateral shifting that may occur during testing.
EZ | 3D is an innovative camera system that utilizes a simple “point-and-shoot” interface to measure relative surface part assembly deformations, all within a standalone handheld device. Measures gap/flush/sheer evolutions during climate test, load test of a structure or assembly.
Using proven stereoscopic vision, EZ | 3D is able to track points relative to a given reference and determine their position in space. Measurements can then be taken again after testing to detect any deformation in the observed assembly. The values displayed at this point reflect the change in position from the initial image taken. The included tablet computer comes preinstalled with software that captures, measures, and stores all pertaining data. Each kit comes with an array of adhesive targets that allow precise measurements of specific points along any surface.
EZ | 3D not only measures the gap and flushness between two surfaces, but can also measure lateral shifting that may occur during testing. Multiple target points can be used to examine the profile of any surface. All data collected using the EZ | 3D system can be exported as a spreadsheet (*.xlsx) and is very simple to view. Each location on the part or vehicle is designated by a customizable tag that appears at the top of each table providing fluid communication of vital records between personnel with minimal explanation.
