The Laser Vibrometer Sensor System was developed for the non-invasive measurement of vibrations in a machine shop or similar environment. The use of the system allows for detection and minimization of chatter vibrations, resulting in optimized machine tool feed rates. Sensor heads provide displacement data to the control unit, which processes and compares the data to allowable thresholds. When a threshold is crossed, the system Control Unit outputs a PLC signal for CNC parameter reduction. The Laser Vibrometer Sensor System was originally developed by A2Z Technologies Corporation for the US Air Force under the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Program.
