RP Metrology's innovative gear inspection system accepted for installation
Boulder, CO — RP Metrology GmbH announced the successful completion of acceptance trials of a new RPG 3500DS at their Aschaffenburg, Germany, facility. The machine, a four axis (+1) generative gear inspection systems capable of measuring parts of up to 3,500mm (4000mm optionally) in outside diameter, was delivered to a customer in Germany.
Utilizing the basic design and construction of the transportable R&P Metrology PM 750/1250, the RPG 3500DS has an active air suspension system, and therefore does not require a special foundation. The use of dark granite provides excellent temperature stability which enhances inspection accuracy and repeatability. The RPG 3500DS comes with state-of-the-art technologies like air bearings, linear motors, direct drive hydrostatic rotary table, newly designed operator friendly keyboard with touch screen, and the unique RP Utilities software for easy operation. R&P Metrology President Hans Rauth notes, "And finally, the machine can be offered with a very attractive price."
The R&P Metrology RPG 3500DS checks spur and helical gears, pinion shafts and double helical gears, as well as bevel gears, hypoid gears, worms, worm wheels and cutting tools. With optional CMM software installed, all types of 3D CMM measurements are possible.
R&P Metrology designs and builds gear metrology equipment, concentrating on medium and large parallel axis gears, bevel gears, tools, shafts, bearing rings and 3D parts. Extended capacity requirements for large applications, and customizing are the specialties of R&P Metrology. R&P also offers hybrid systems that uniquely combine gear measurement with conventional CMM metrology as well as customized solutions for vertical and horizontal shaft applications, such as camshafts and crankshafts.
All R&P machines utilize proven CNC control and analysis software and granite guideways with air bearing slides, a benchmark for the industry. State-of-the-art linear motors drive technologies are employed for accuracy and long life.
