An optical pickup device according to an embodiment of the present invention includes: a light source that outputs a light beam; an irradiation optical system that projects onto a measurement target the light beam outputted from the light source; an imaging optical system that converges and images the light beam reflected by the measurement target; a light receiving part that receives the light beam imaged by the imaging optical system; and a peak separation part that when the light beams reflected by a first surface and a second surface of the measurement target are assumed to be a first reflected beam and a second reflected beam, separates peaks of light intensity of the first and second reflected beams with respect to a distance between the irradiation optical system and the measurement target in the light receiving part.

A hardness tester loads a predetermined test force on an indenter and presses into a surface of a sample to form an indentation. The indenter includes an indenter memory storing indenter information specific to the indenter. The indenter is detachably mounted to an indenter shaft. A CPU acquires, from the indenter memory, the indenter information of the indenter mounted to the indenter shaft, and uses the acquired indenter information to perform a predetermined operation and calculate hardness.

A manual measuring system (an articulated three-dimensional coordinate measuring machine or a gantry three-dimensional coordinate measuring machine) allows a measuring probe to be manually moved while enabling a user to focus on making measurements and allows the user to manually move the measuring probe in order to facilitate and accelerate measurements. The manual measuring system includes a sub-monitor (portable terminal) that is mounted near the tip of the measuring probe. It is possible to display on the sub-monitor a guided route for the measuring probe to a measurement point or to indicate on the sub-monitor that the measuring probe has entered a measurement allowable range or to allow the user to direct by means of the sub-monitor to obtain a measurement value by the measuring probe.


A data transmission module is provided as a battery-less accessory for attachment to portable metrology devices (e.g., handheld digital calipers, micrometers, indicators, etc.). Rather than utilizing battery resources from the metrology devices, the data transmission module utilizes energy harvested wirelessly from a remote data node (e.g., a computer system, display, etc.) to power transmission of measurement data signals to the remote data node. The data transmission module may receive sufficient power when relatively close to the remote data node, such as when a user is near the remote data node when operating the metrology device to obtain dimensional measurements of a workpiece. A wireless data generator of the data transmission module may be configured to wirelessly communicate measurement data signals using: the harvested energy; or a modulated reflection of, or coupling to, a received energy supply field from the remote data node; or a combination thereof.

A hardness tester includes a correlation memory storing correlation data which associates hardness of a standard reference sample based on dimensions of an indentation formed by pressing an indenter into a surface of the standard reference sample, and hardness of the standard reference sample based on test force and depression amount during formation of the indentation in the standard reference sample. A CPU measures the test force and depression amount during formation of the indentation in a measured sample; calculates an estimated value of the hardness of the measured sample based on the measured test force and depression amount; and calculates the hardness of the measured sample based on the calculated estimated value and the correlation data.

A measuring probe for measuring a screw groove of a relatively rotatable ball screw includes a stylus having a tip end portion configured to contact the screw groove, a radial-direction displacement mechanism configured to support the stylus so as for the stylus to be displaceable in an X direction toward an axial center of the ball screw, an axial-direction displacement mechanism configured to support the stylus so as for the stylus to be displaceable in an axial direction (Z direction) of the axial center, and sensors configured to detect displacement of the stylus produced by the radial-direction displacement mechanism and the axial-direction displacement mechanism. This enables high-accuracy measurement of a predetermined position of a side surface of a relatively rotatable work.

During a retraction where a stylus tip separates from a work piece from a state where the stylus tip and the work piece are in contact, whether there is contact between the stylus tip and the work piece is monitored. When the contact between the stylus tip and the work piece is detected during the retraction, a probe is displaced to a position where the stylus tip does not come in contact with the work piece and a recovery process is executed. When a distance between a point on a surface of the work piece at a retraction start point and a contact point between the stylus tip and the work piece is Lm, and a value defined by (Lmd) multiplied by a coefficient k (0

A measuring probe includes a stylus having a contact part, an axial motion mechanism, and a rotary motion mechanism. The axial motion mechanism includes first diaphragm structures and a moving member that allows the contact part to move in an axial direction. The rotary motion mechanism includes a second diaphragm structure and a rotating member that allows the contact part to move along a plane perpendicular to the axial direction. The first diaphragm structures are disposed at a symmetric distance with respect to the second diaphragm structure, and the second diaphragm structure is disposed between the first diaphragm structures in the axial direction. The axial motion mechanism supports the rotary motion mechanism, or the rotary motion mechanism supports the axial motion mechanism.
