Thread Verifier Eliminates Rework

Many applications require thorough inspection to prevent improperly tapped holes from reaching final assembly.


Fully Automated Part-to-CAD Measurement Verification

The complex geometries of parts that are produced in today’s shops are known to have tight tolerances that require highly detailed measurement for quality control.


Robots as Precision Machine Tools

To remain competitive, high-end manufacturing companies are looking for accurate, reliable and maintenance-free machine tools offering fast change-over, programming and setup. Industrial robot technology could provide an excellent base for machining...


Methods Convergence GD&T Tools

Parts that fly and parts that are implanted in the human body have a number of things in common, one being that failure is not an option. For critical parts on which lives depend, no expense can be spared and no stone left unturned to ensure quality...


Sizing up the Digital Optical Comparator

A digital optical comparator uses a CAD file instead of a template or overlay film. More importantly, the digital comparator not only measures dimensions, but it also actively compares the measurements with nominal values, thus making it truly a gag...


Attain Consistent Roundness and Concentricity Readings

The CNC Swiss-type lathe is finding an increasingly large market as non-traditional Swiss shops find its production advantages for small, precise and complex workpieces.


Automated Bore Finish Inspection

Inspection of bores for engine blocks, transmission cases, connecting rods, steering gear cases, and cylinder liners, while necessary to ensure quality surface finishes for effective performance, has historically required an operator to evaluate the...
