Today’s automotive industry demands high quality component designs within a very short period of time, so that it meets the toughest mechanical features and ultimate safety standards.
In addition to that, simultaneous inspection of multiple regions of interest on complex components, that are based more and more on composite materials, forces the use new optical measuring tools.
Digital Image Correlation (DIC), a full field and non-contact measuring technique, offers a cost effective, fast, and highly accurate measuring technique solving todays measuring demands in the automotive industry.
