While takeoff from runway 24 at Qleit Airport poses no concern as aircraft will be directly above open water, landing aircraft ideally requires a low altitude approach vector from above Syrian territory, he said.
It might be possible to avoid this error if corrections are made based on the angle of the CMM approach vector rather than on the basis of the calculated angle.
6 Misalignment and Non-Orthogonality Errors With a Flexible Probe or Incorrect Approach Vector
The error estimates developed above can significantly underestimate the full magnitude of potential problems if a flexible probe is employed, or if the approach vector is not radial because of imprecise knowledge of the center of the hole.
2[degrees], even if the effects of a flexible probe and incorrect approach vector are considered.
The complications of a flexible probe or incorrect approach vector need not be considered explicitly in the software correction.
Additional complications occur when using a flexible probe, where the probe deflection may not lie along the same direction as the CMM approach vector.
Errors will occur if the center of the circle is not known precisely so that the approach vector cannot be made to lie exactly along a radial direction, perpendicular to the surface.
which elected to reconfigure its space on another floor and consolidate its staff, W&M had the opportunity to approach Vector, Reed's neighboring tenant, with an offer of contiguous space.
Milacron strives to remove all potential sources of error in the probing process by using probes comparable in length to the cutting tool and using the same approach vectors for probing as used to cut specific features.
