Quality Vision International will display its TurnCheck family of precision optical instruments for measuring shafts and other cylindrical parts.Company-designed optics and are fully telecentric with each element designed to eliminate distortion. Supporting illumination consists of highly-collimated constant-wavelength light to eliminate a wrap-around effect found when lighting turned parts. The system is said to produce a crisp, uniformly illuminated and magnified image across the  field of view with no edge effects or exclusion zones.

The system is intended to provide accurate measurements despite vibration and temperature variation often found in shop floor conditions. The system software automatically optimizes lighting, focus and image tools. Simple controls, easy loading and unloading, and intelligent software tools enabler fast setup time with no need for extensive operator training, the company says. Three model ranges are available to accommodate a parts as long as 1,200 mm.

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.

  • 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.
