For micro parts production the introduction of linked parts is a method to simplify handling operations. In subsequent operation steps the effort to provide the position and the orientation of the part can notably be reduced.
Nevertheless a fast and accurate measuring system is required to reference the individual part to the linked part and the feeding system. In the presented study a part of a processing chain is investigated. It consists of a conveyor, part detection system and a forming machine.
