Marlborough, MA — Adcole Corporation announced that "Automotive Industries Magazine" featured the company's Adcole Model 1310 Camshaft Gage on the cover of the June 2013 issue. The gage measures 100% of camshafts live on the production line with sub-micron accuracy.
"Increasingly stringent regulations governing emissions combined with the need to save costs by reducing waste and rework have created the need for high-speed measuring equipment capable of measuring every part to the closest tolerances possible," wrote Lenny Case of "Automotive Industries." Adcole's Model 1310 Camshaft Gage provides robot-fed 100% camshaft inspection, features new 19 mm follower heads capable of measuring six cams per cylinder with up to 32 measuring points, and achieves 0.1 micron accuracy.
According to J. Brooks Reece, Vice President of Adcole Corporation, "the new mileage and tailpipe emissions standards in the USA and Europe continue to become tighter and influence new engine development which impacts camshaft technology. Our camshaft gage advances are driven by this reality."
Established in 1895, "Automotive Industries Magazine" is the world's oldest trade magazine covering the global automotive industry.
