This paper presents the control strategy of a new type of mechanical actuator used to help in measuring hole surface parameter. The actuator can carry up to a load of 26 kg during measurement. Often, the measurement unit’s attitude is misaligned due to the force acting on it. Actuator is used in order to control the misalignment of such system during measurement. In this research, the complete measurement system consists of a servo motor, a laser diode, a laser interferometer, an optical system, as well as an integrated computer system. The main purpose of this research is to develop the new type of actuator which can control the attitude (position and inclination) of a measurement probe. The experimental results show that it is possible to carry mechanically the loads up to 26 kg of the measurement probe during measurement of deep surface. In this paper, the developed actuator’s control strategy has been discussed widely in order to measure the surface parameter successfully.
