Jenoptik Industrial Metrology is asking U.S.-based manufacturers to bring their quality challenges to its experts as part of its 2014 road show event: The Better Parts Challenge. The point of these demonstrations is to show how Jenoptik measuring devices and software can help shops make their specific parts at a higher quality while potentially reduce production costs.

According to Peter Ackroyd, Jenoptik sales manager, precision measurement of surface, form, and dimensional tolerances will help manufacturers make good parts even better.

In addition to the Better Parts Challenge, Jenoptik will conduct seminars on the “Fundamentals of Surface Finish and Form.”

The tour runs from April to November 2014. Go here to learn more about event locations and registration information.

  • Surface Texture From Ra to Rz

    The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.

  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.

  • Understanding Errors In Hand-Held Measuring Instruments

    Different instruments (and different operators) are prone to different errors.
