Reducing Downtime With Tool Presetting

It’s an ongoing challenge. To remain competitive, shops must find new and more efficient ways to increase production. Often they look to new, faster and more precise machine tools as the answer. Sometimes experimentation with a variety of different ...


Retired Yet Inspired to Learn Machining

A retired engineer with no prior machining experience is learning how to be a machinist. His quickly increasing skillset demonstrates how new machining technology is becoming more capable and easier to pick up and apply.


Raising the Bar with Ballbar Testing

Few manufacturing companies rely on ballbar testing to maintain machine tool accuracy as thoroughly as Silfex. Now, advanced training and a move to a Renishaw QC20-W wireless system have enabled the company to take the benefits of ballbar testing to...


Manufacturing Professionals Needed, but Measurement Professionals Really Needed

Quality standards based on model-based definition are only increasing the need for skilled inspection professionals. This college recently added a course in computer-assisted inspection.


Is Your Bar Feeder Accurately Aligned?

This affordable, simple system enables shops to quickly and accurately check bar-feeder alignment on their own.


Big Visions for Micro Parts

Micromachined parts place unique demands on dimensional measurement systems. It pays to know the most effective approach for a given application.


Flexible Fixturing Speeds CMM Inspection

Modular fixturing components enable users to realize fast change-overs on CMMs to open inspection bottlenecks and reduce machine tool downtime waiting for part measurement.


Lasers Offer Viable, Noncontact Alternative to Touch Probes

Specialized optics and automatic, real-time calibration make Nextec’s laser systems a viable alternative to mechanical touch probes for high-volume inspection applications involving complex geometry and tight tolerances.


Probe Enables Finish Measurement on CMMs

The SFP1 probe uses technology incorporated in Renishaw’s five-axis Revo measuring head to facilitate surface finish measurement on CMMs.


Modular Gaging for Short-Run Production

Gaging systems that consist of reconfigurable modules promise flexibility for high-precision inspection of short-run shaft production.
