ABSTRACT --- The ScanFit&Measure quality control system for aluminum
extrusion factories is presented. This is a stand-alone flatbed scanner-based
system for precise two-dimensional profile measurements using standard CAD
(Computer-Aided Design) nominal files, offering cost-effective precision quality
control in on- and off-line modes. The best-fit procedure aligns measured data
points to nominal geometry quickly and easily. Important functionalities like
profile tolerance and wall thickness are reviewed.
