Jenoptik Industrial Metrology’s Hommel-Etamic wavemove combines high-precision roughness and contour measurement technology with CNC technology and eight fully automatic CNC axes to measure both roughness and contours in a single measuring run, recording as many data points as necessary for automotive production.

wavemove is integrated into the production process as an SPC measuring station. It can be clamped into the measuring system at any stage of production, recognizes the workpiece and automatically suggests the predefined measuring points via the operating program, the company says.

Twist measurements on sealing surfaces can be performed. The measurement process itself is fully automatic. In addition, the pick-up element for the workpiece is mounted on a 360-degree turntable and can also be moved in different directions.

Similarly, the traverse unit and measuring probe can be tilted, swiveled and rotated. According to the company, this allows the sleeve to move the roughness probe to any measurement position.

If required, the contour probe can be operated in parallel with the roughness probe, which provides convenient top and bottom measurement via two probe heads, the company says.
