Laser encoders from Renishaw deliver part-per-million accuracy during week-long machining cycles on 40 meter long composite wing skins being built by Flow Corporation.
Air gaging technology has its roots back over 70 years and is today a viable and highly reliable method for many applications in industries where a high volume of parts is produced or where the precision of hard-to-access dimensions makes other measuring techniques impossible.
To help verify machine tool accuracy in closed-loop motion control systems, direct load monitoring using secondary feedback encoders eliminates common sources of position error — mechanical backlash, non-linearity, and hysteresis — and saves money along the way.
Hexagon Metrology's workshop will focus on measurement solutions for common aerospace challenges.
A process-controlled hard turning cell in this Texas machine shop deploys programmable gages for measuring and sorting mud-motor bearings – and the cell pays for itself in 18 days.
CNC verification and simulation software developer CGTech and ZOLLER, a presetting and measuring machine manufacturer, announce a newly developed tooling management interface that increases overall machining effectiveness by reducing the operating costs in tool presetting, simulation and prove-out.
The new generation Artis CTM V6 system from Marposs monitors the machine tool, tooling, coolant flow and related process operations to safeguard and enhance complex machining applications, such as gear hobbing, deep hole drilling and more.
The MPX Series of motorized pendulum impact testers from Instron are essential for metals impact testing to Charpy and Izod standards.
HM-200® Series Micro Vickers Hardness Testing Machines from Mitutoyo America incorporate the latest optical systems for measuring indentation dimensions together with an electromagnetic test-force loading device – just two of many productivity-enhancing technologies designed into these machines.
