Manufacturers are now driving towards the increased use of automation and the goal of zero‐defects. As quality is improved and defect rates approach the popularized “Six‐sigma” level (customarily 3.4 defects per million), manual or sampled measurement techniques limit the achievement of product quality and manufacturing cost objectives. New automated inspection and gauging technology is required for process verification and control. To be competitive in the current manufacturing environment, new gauging technology must be integrated into the manufacturing process to provide online feedback.
