Inspection/Sorting Machine

ShadowGage is designed to measure features such as diameters, lengths and grooves on the contour of small precision parts, and then automatically separate the acceptable parts from the rejects.

ShadowGage is designed to measure features such as diameters, lengths and grooves on the contour of small precision parts, and then automatically separate the acceptable parts from the rejects. Single-camera systems can measure either the profile or top view of the parts, while two-camera systems can measure both views simultaneously.

According to the company, the machines can measure with an accuracy of ±0.0001" at a rate as fast as 7,200 parts/hr. Because the software recognizes the part’s orientation and then executes the appropriate measurements, parts can be loaded onto the machine manually or from a vibratory feeder, without regard to orientation.
