LVDTs versus Optical Scanning

Gaging fixtures are a staple in many metrology labs and assembly lines. They offer a fast, easy, and inexpensive way to determine if a measured part passes tolerances. Two popular tools that are found in many fixtures are HEIDENHAIN length gages and Linear Variable Differential Transformers (LVDT). While LVDTs and HEIDENHAIN length gages are both used for the same purpose, the way they operate is fundamentally different.
