Adcole Corporation to Highlight Optical Measurement Systems at IMTS 2018

Fast, Flexible LightSCOPE and LightSCAN Optical Measurement Systems to be Featured on Model 911 and Model 1200LX Metrology Gages

MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Aug. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Adcole Corporation today announced that it will be displaying two new optical measurement systems at IMTS 2018, to be held at McCormick Place, Chicago, from September 10-15, 2018. Adcole plans to show the company's new LightSCOPE™ and LightSCAN™ optical measurement systems. These optical systems will be fitted into two Cylindrical Coordinate Measurement Machines (CCMMs) at the show, the Model 911 and 1200-LX, two of Adcole's flagship products. Both of these optical measurement systems benefit advanced manufacturing operations with high speed scanning of complex camshaft and crankshaft parts, and deliver extremely accurate non-contact measurement data in a shop floor ready configuration.

The Model 911 and Model 1200-LX CCMM Gages in which the optical systems are fitted to are regarded as the workhorses of the industry. The Model 911 flexible vertical gage is ideal for measuring camshafts, pistons, pump rotors/housings, transmission shafts and many other cylindrical components. The 1200-LX is a high-precision gage that uses a laser interferometer system for precise follower positioning to measure crankshafts, camshafts, and other large cylindrical components in demanding production environments. Simple to operate, with comprehensive, easy-to-understand pass/fail output reports, the Model 1200-LX helps advanced manufacturers verify part tolerances, minimize scrap, and eliminate quality breaches. Both gages are programmable for automated measurement sequences, are equipped with an accurate headstock spindle that has a runout of less than 0.1 µm, both feature an intuitive user interface with touchscreen monitor, and deliver 3,600 data points per revolution (every 1/10 of a degree)

"The LightSCOPE and LightSCAN optical measurement systems add a tremendous amount of speed and flexibility to your metrology process. By integrating these optical measurement systems into the best CCMMs in the business, manufacturers stand to gain a significant quality edge," states Jeff Walker, President and CEO, Adcole Corporation. "These innovative and flexible non-contact measurement systems will serve the needs of forward-thinking customers looking to reduce the time and costs associated with comprehensive metrology."

To see the LightSCOPE and LightSCAN optical measurement systems in action on the Model 911 and Model 1200LX Gages, please visit Adcole at Booth #121139, in the East Building of McCormick Place, Level 2.
