Form Measuring Systems handle workpieces up to 40 kg.
Press Release Summary:
May 24, 2012 - Designed for workpieces up to 430 mm in diameter, Hommel-Etamic F435 and F455 complete fully automatic measurement of geometrical tolerances, surface roughness, and straightness in single setup. Advanced probe design permits roughness and waviness inspections along with form and position tolerance measurements via adjustment on rotary control. With CNC rotation and tilt module, fully automatic axial and radial measurements are performed without interruption.

New Automatic Form Measuring System
Press release date: May 12, 2012
The improved productivity is enhanced by the TURBO FORM evaluation software. The graphical, function-oriented user interface guarantees simple operation even for complex measuring tasks. Besides evaluation and presentation of all form and position parameters, the software also includes evaluation features for all typical roughness and waviness parameters. For continuous monitoring of the production process, all measurement results can be transferred to a central statistics server via qs-STAT. Twist measurement according to Daimler standard
Standard options of this class of measurement device include second generation twist measurement for rotating seal surfaces on crank or gear shafts according to Daimler standard MBN 31007-07. Twist measurement is used to evaluate the dynamic sealing properties of a surface using shaft seals. According to the current Daimler standard MBN 31007-07 from 2009, all new parameters such as theoretical feed cross section per revolution DFu, or the contact length in percent DLu, can be determined using optimized evaluation algorithms. Thanks to optimized evaluation the measurement results are much more stable, and the reduction of the evaluation length from 5mm to 2mm constitutes a singnificant time savings.
