Jenoptik Industrial Metrology will demonstrate the Hommel-Etamic F435 and F455 automatic form measuring systems. Each system completes fully automatic measurement of geometrical tolerances, surface roughness and straightness in a single setup. An advanced probe design permits roughness and waviness inspections along with form and position tolerance measurements via a simple adjustment on the rotary control.

Designed for workpieces weighing as much as 40 kg and as large as 430 mm in diameter, the systems can measure products such as gear shafts, injection parts, bearing rings, valves, connecting rods and pistons. The company offers specialized solutions to extend the application scope to include brake disc measurement. Individual configurations optimize measurement situations for specific tasks.  
Available as a compact desktop version or a complete ergonomic measurement work station, the systems include a frictionless air bearing rotary table that ensures the reproducibility of the smallest tolerances over long periods of time, the company says. The systems also provide automatic centering and leveling of the workpiece, and are equipped with high precision guides on the R and Z axes.
A CNC rotation and tilt module provides automatic axial and radial measurements without interruption. Individually motorized axes for tilting (90 degrees) and rotating (270 degrees) enable the probe to access difficult to reach measuring positions. The probe direction is reversible with variable free-stroke limits in both directions.
The systems are equipped with Turbo Form evaluation software, a graphical, function-oriented user interface. The software includes evaluation features for form, position, roughness and waviness parameters. For continuous monitoring of the production process, all measurement results can be transferred to a central statistics server via qs-STAT.
Standard options include second-generation twist measurement for rotating seal surfaces on crank or gear shafts according to Daimler standard MBN 31007-07.
