When a Turn-Mill Doesn’t Turn
LeanWerks uses innovative probing, tooling and workholding strategies to enable its turn-mill to machine castings complete, in effect turning it into a five-axis machining center.
The Benefits of a Bigger CMM
The elimination of backlogs, increased throughput, and the ability to quote larger, more complex parts are just a few of the benefits this company has realized by upgrading its inspection technology.
Maximizing Metrology’s Flexibility
Simplified and more direct measuring and inspection functions speed time to market while handling a wider range of parts and surfaces.
Seven Tips to Ensure Accurate Probing
When used correctly, probing can have significant cost, efficiency and quality benefits.
CT Scanning Moves from Lab to Production Line
In addition to raw computing power, new microfocus source designs and intuitive software make this technology ready for the production line.
On-Machine Verification Keeps Process Chain Intact
Measuring on machining centers is no substitute for this mold manufacturer's CMM. Rather, the goal of on-machine probing is to minimize downtime at individual workstations and to maximize overall throughput.
“Pay As You Go” Probing
This part- and tool-setting probing system minimizes upfront costs by using a “pay as you go” model, whereby users purchase a six-month credit token that enables unlimited use of the system during that period.
Don’t Sweat the Setup: Probing the Position of Complex Workpieces
This manufacturer uses a software tool to tailor the machining program to the location and orientation of each contoured part.
Closed-Loop Gear Production
A familiar concept is now gaining serious traction, enabling manufacturers to develop closed-loop cells that automatically match the finished product to design concept goals.
Industry 4.0 Through Metrology's Eyes
High precision 3D laser and CT scanning bring all the “big data” directly from shop floor to top floor.
