The First Scan 150R non-contact, fully automatic precision measuring system is designed for cylindrical components. It can perform non-contact measurements with accuracy and speed and is easily networked to provide data to a variety of SPC formats, the company says.
The measuring system uses a telecentric backlight illuminator to produce a high-contrast silhouette of the workpiece to be inspected. The illuminator increases edge contrast and measurement accuracy designed specifically for gaging applications. The images are received by a high-resolution digital line scan camera that can take measurement data from the part at rates of more than 14,000 updates per sec. This data is collected by 8,160 sensitive pixels that can detect changes in the light pattern at sub-micron resolution. During the scanning process, a calibration cone, which is incorporated into the workpiece holder, provides the basis for all measurements to be automatically provided by the machine.
Once the part image is scanned, an unlimited number of measurement zones can be preset along with the corresponding dimensional specifications and control limits.

  • 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 a higher level.

    Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.
