Jenoptik Automotive offers the Hommel-Etamic AG380 pneumatic snap gage designed to quickly, cost-effectively and flexibly check diameters ranging from 17 to 48 mm, providing measurements with consistently high levels of precision. According to the company, the gage eliminates the need to constantly invest in new diameter-specific pneumatic snap gauges when producing new workpieces.
This pneumatic snap gauge can be used in dimensional industrial production metrology to reliably measure shaft diameters with strict tolerances. Pneumatic metrology provides high-precision, reliable measurement results with repetitive accuracy for years, the company says, particularly in rough production environments. The flexible snap gauge is ideal for both small-scale and prototype production as well as mass production. The gage can be easily positioned and installed at the desired measuring stations on the shop floor, and an optional retrofit kit is available to easily convert any existing measuring system.
