New Measuring Machine from Marposs
April 16, 2004—The M110 Optoflex from Marposs is designed for the dimensional inspection of shafts and shaft-like parts. Utilizing optoelectric technology, this machine can inspect a number of parts while performing different types of measurements.
Designed for use in a shop floor environment, the machine can be integrated into a product line for inter-operational or final inspection of parts with the possibility of feedback to the machine tool. It can also be used as an audit station or for post-process inspection applications.
According to the companys press release, the machine offers a high degree of flexibility by using shadow cast optoelectronic solutions. As opposed to the traditional contact and air-to-electric solutions, this method allows measurements to be performed without touching the part. This provides a means for several parts to be checked without any operator intervention.
A single light blade produces measurements and an LVDT probe can be incorporated for axial TIR measurements. Performance checks include static and dynamic diameters, stroke and index, straightness and profile analysis.
