Multipoint GAGE-CHEK Readouts from Heidenhain

SCHAUMBURG, IL (February 2010) - Continuing to provide the well known and versatile GAGE-CHEK metrology readouts (past METRONICS brand) to the manufacturing and quality assurance industries, parent company HEIDENHAIN Corporation introduces it with a new dark gray faceplate and many features. Functionally excellent, these GAGE-CHEK readouts have inputs for up to eight gauges, and are designed for multipoint measurements.

These HEIDENHAIN ND 2100G series GAGE-CHEKs will handle machine measurement and inspection tasks with ease, from simple pass/fail detection up to complex SPC evaluation. They can be configured for basic or advanced operations where inputs can be assigned and combined as desired, along with mathematical, trigonometric or statistical formulas. This makes it possible to measure even complex dimensions such as thickness, flatness, volume and more. Rapid acquisition of measurement data can monitor dynamic events such as the eccentricity of a rotating shaft.

The HEIDENHAIN GAGE-CHEK can manage up to 100 parts, each with up to 16 visible measurement features and 16 hidden ones. Soft and hot keys can be adapted as required. Min/Max functions monitor and store data, and warning and tolerance limits can be set to each display value. The large color graphic screen will display results numerically or graphically as a color bar or a dial, or archived for statistical process control (SPC).

The ND 2104G GAGE-CHEK covers up to four axes, while the ND 2108G can handle eight. The RS-232 interface is used for communications with a PC, and a connector for interfacing with relays is also included. Users can also connect printers and memory media via the USB port.
