Adcole Adds New Electronics and Utilities Upgrades to its Camshaft Inspection Gage
MARLBOROUGH, MA: Adcole, a provider of aerospace and industrial metrology products has announced several new electronics and utilities upgrades to their end-of-line camshaft inspection gage that is capable of measuring 200 parts per hour with submicron accuracy.
The Adcole 1310, designed for high speed in-line crankshaft measurement provides robot-fed camshaft inspection by measuring 10 or more parameters with 0.1 micron resolution per data point, or 3,600 data points per revolution. This high speed system is intended to operate in a fully automated production line including gantry or robot loaded/unloaded, communications, inspection, Go/No Go determination, data transfer and grinder feedback.
Featuring a new CPU and Windows7 based software, utility upgrades include advanced chatter analysis options, parameter warnings for programmable reports, updated qs-Stat quality options, and a USB port with software to support popular customer networking requirements.
By incorporating an automatic programmable headstock with 100 mm travel and a programmable tailstock for rapid changeovers, the Adcole 1310 High-Speed Camshaft Gage measurement parameters include radius, profile, taper, crown, timing angle, diameter, velocity, acceleration, run-out, roundness, and concentricity. This gage also features 19 mm wide measuring heads capable of measuring six cam lobes per cylinder with up to 32 measuring heads.
