Jenoptik Automotive recently introduced the Hommel-Etamic AG380 pneumatic snap gage to quickly, cost-effectively and flexibly check a range of different diameters (from Ø 17-48 mm), providing measurements with consistent high levels of precision. Manufacturers previously had to constantly invest in new diameter-specific pneumatic snap gages when producing a new type of workpiece.
Pneumatic snap gages are commonly used in dimensional industrial production metrology to reliably measure shaft diameters with strict tolerances. Pneumatic metrology is typically the choice for high-precision, reliable measurement results with repetitive accuracy for years, particularly in rough production environments.
The flexible snap gage is ideal both for small-scale and prototype production as well as mass production. The gage can be easily positioned and installed at the desired measuring stations on the shop floor. A retrofit kit makes it possible to easily convert any existing measuring system is optional.
