The Millimar C1200 from Mahr Federal is a low-cost, easy-to-view and easy-to-use Digital IC Amplifier with a new high resolution, high color contrast display that provides clear and very responsive analog readings with selectable scales.
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.
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.
Jet engine component maker Meyer Tool reduces its hard gage costs by replacing multiple costly hard gages with a single software-driven Equator gage from Renishaw.
Hexagon Metrology's workshop will focus on measurement solutions for common aerospace challenges.
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 Coordinate Metrology Society's Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference attracted more than 500 professionals worldwide in the 3D portable measurement and inspection field.
Taking measurements at ground zero on the machine or the shop floor is the name of the game, and here are some of the latest portable metrology systems that can provide those competitive capabilities.
The compact standalone PWT 100 testing device from Heidenhain supports multiple serial interfaces to check the function and adjustment of encoders.
Test bars from Briney Tooling Systems are a quick way to confirm proper realignment of the machine spindle after a machine crash for any reason.
