Abstract: Modeling of a novel cone-jet sensor using two-dimensional (2-D) finite element analysis was investigated for dimensional measurement. Theoretical and experimental studies demonstrated that a cone-jet sensor supplied with air can be used to accurately measure displacement, and its work range of 1.5 to 4.2 mm is some ten times greater than a simple back-pressure sensor. It is anticipated that this type of sensor will find wide applications in manufacturing industry due to its wider working range, high precision, and other features.
