LMI Corp.’s LaserGage HS742 3D sensor is a 3D laser profiler and that uses blue-laser technology and application-specific algorithms to overcome the challenge of measuring countersinks on solid, translucent, shiny, and opaque surfaces with repeatable results.
Exact Metrology offers the RS6 laser scanner, which collects data at full speed regardless of part geometry, for use with the Absolute Arm cobot. The scanner is easily removed from the arm while probing and can be remounted in seconds with no time-wasting recalibration.
Two NVision Inc. projects demonstrate the growing role of noncontact scanning/measurement technologies in the race to create new products that minimize exposure to the novel coronavirus.
Confirm tolerances without gauge remastering with the Aeroel MECLAB.T40 from Marposs. The benchtop laser measurement system doesn’t require a PC, so it’s ideal for use on the shop floor.
As micro-processing quality requirements become more demanding, legacy systems don’t always meet accuracy and repeatability specifications. Built around ALIO’s 5-axis laser gimbal, 6D Laser’s integrated infinite field of view (IFOV) system increases processing speed while eliminating errors from field stitching.
Amada Weld Tech’s MM-L300A laser weld monitor improves weld performance by giving operators real-time feedback on production errors such as gaps between parts, missing parts, over-penetration, incorrect focus, and cover gas absence. The unit’s software simplifies setup and analysis.
Featuring a reinforced shank that helps resist breakage, 3X Power blades from L.S. Starrett cut metal and other materials more efficiently. A version with heat-treated teeth set at a super-aggressive pitch cuts fast in applications such as demolition and emergency vehicle extrication.
L.S. Starrett’s 16 hardness-testing solutions include seven Rockwell systems, eight Vickers systems, and one Brinell system. Suitable for internal and external testing via dolphin nose design, the No. 3823 and No. 3824 test carbon steel, alloy steel, cast iron, and nonferrous metals per 30 Rockwell hardness scales.
Rigaku’s KT Series of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) analyzers for metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing includes the KT-100S. Via the Drill Down feature, the analyzer automatically burns through imperfections to obtain a clean reading.
Mitutoyo America Corp.’s QM-Height Series measures height, height difference (step), inside/outside widths, inside/outside diameters, circle pitch, and free-form surface max/min heights to ±(2.4+2.1L/600) μm. Simple-to-use control panel enables most measurements to be made with one keystroke.
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s R12 is a 12-megapixel version of the company’s AICON SmartScan white light scanner. The higher-resolution camera increases the accuracy of a system known for versatility and portability.
The multisensor MiSCAN Vision System is a coordinate measuring machine (CMM) with a microscopic-level scanning probe. The compact MiSTAR 555 is a space-saving in-line or near-line CNC CMM designed for high-speed, high-accuracy measurements with assurance from 10° C to 40° C.
New Sunrise Warranty at Trilogy Machinery
Sunrise Ironworkers’ U.S. distributor now warranties ironworkers and punching machine parts to three years and one year on labor.
Backlog of Orders Index Grows To All-Time High
The manufacturing economy continued its recovery in March, according to Institute for Supply Management’s March 2021 ‘Manufacturing ISM Report On Business.’ Backlogs are growing, as are raw materials inventories and exports and imports.
Recovery Takes Hold: February U.S. Manufacturing Technology Orders Increase Almost 18% Over January
Totaling $377.6 million, February’s latest orders represent a 32.2% increase year over year, according to AMT’s report. Oil and gas surprised with an uptick, and medical equipment’s rise likely resulted from hospitals catching up on elective procedures.
