Radix Technology Solutions, a division of the AIS Technologies Group, released a new vision application at the Automate 2019 trade show and conference. This vision application, called Gear Tooth Alignment Analytics, is designed to automate the process of precisely aligning differential pinion and gears.
This configurable vision application inspects individual gear teeth (drive & coast), precisely calculating gear mesh contact patterns. With real-time feedback to the operator, this stand-alone application ensures the achievement of rapid and accurate pinion and gear alignment. Additional data provided by Gear Tooth Alignment Analytics includes length and width of pattern, position along the flank, total contact area, along with other metrics of value to gear analysis. An additional benefit to this product is that it requires only minimal rouging on each gear – a process and material savings of substantial value.
“Radix is well known for our ability to solve tricky manufacturing problems with clever technologies,“ says Josh Capogna, vice president, product innovation. “This is one more example of our commitment to innovation in intelligent manufacturing and Industry 4.0.”
