An industrial application of phase-shifting shadow moire interferometry for automatic 3D inspection of fine objects is presented. A line grating is used to generate shadow type moire fringes whose relative phases are readily determined by implementing the principle of phase shifting so that the surface height of the object can be measured. A special phase-measuring algorithm, named the A-bucket algorithm, is used which can precisely computes the relative phases even though there exists a significant level of errors in phase shifting due to miscalibration and external vibration. Finally, several experimental cases are discussed to demonstrate that a measuring accuracy in the order of 0.001 mm can practically be achieved.
