R&P Metrology GmbH’s RPG PM 750/1000 portable gear metrology machine is able to check spur and helical gears of unlimited size. The machine is a CNC three-axis system using air bearing and linear motor technologies.
The machine is a flexible solution for measuring larger gears on production machines that may not have onboard inspection. This allows one unit to provide independent gear inspection on many machines in the plant and is easily moved from one operation to the next. A docking station with a base plate and rotary table is available, allowing the PM 750/1000 to become a stand-alone four-axis generative gear inspection machine.
