The optical inspection of wrought hot workpieces between subsequent forming steps of a multistage process chain can yield diverse advantages. Deficient components can be detected in an early forming stage. Moreover, the eliminated cooling economizes heating energy. The present workpiece temperature can be exploited in the following chain steps. Challenges arise due to the heat input into the air surrounding the work-piece, as triangulation techniques rely on homogeneous optical conditions. The effect of an inhomogeneous refractive index field (RIF) in air on a 3-D geometry measurement by optical triangulation is modeled exemplary by a virtual measurement of a hot cylinder. To our knowledge, this is the first simulation approach that fully considers both light deflection from the illumination unit to object and from object to camera. Simulated measurement results in a homogeneous and an inhomogeneous RIF are compared. The presented approach predicts measurement deviations in inhomogeneous optical media and can help to design actuated or computer-assisted compensation routines in order to reduce deflection effects when measuring hot objects.
