In addition to the recently added thread tool, which measures straight “V” thread forms, the OASIS inspection system now includes the capability to optically measure external NPT pipe threads. The inspection system is capable of measuring to a 1 1/4" NPT (1.660" OD) in less than a second, the company says.
 
The system gives users real numbers instead of a “go/no-go” results common to ring gages, the company says. This enables users to know when their process is close to tolerance and adjust accordingly to avoid rejects. Designed to save time and money, the system enables process control on pipe thread production.

  • How Accurate Is Your Machining Center?

    Virtually every machine tool builder lists, as part of a machine's specification, accuracy and repeatability figures. What's generally not given is the method used to arrive at the figures. Though these methods are defined in linear positioning standards, not all builders use the same standards.

  • 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.

    While countersunk and chamfered holes are similar in appearance, functionally they are quite different. Consequently, different gages exist to serve these different functional requirements.
