The INORA SRS (Spatial Reference System) dramatically speeds the process of maximizing machine accuracy and consistency. Created using our proprietary Math Engine, it is the first system of its kind to deliver reliable, error-free volumetric check; therefore, it eliminates compounding errors in the manufacturing process. Additionally, it requires no specific orientation, which expedites the setup and testing processes.

The system consists of six NIST-traceable carbon-fiber bars — as well as four steel spheres — that connect to form a rigid tetrahedron. The symmetrical tetrahedron shape is the first of the Platonic solids and provides six easy-to-read comparisons. As a reference object, SRS is geometrically and thermally stable, meaning it can be used in almost any location or condition.

While many machine verification processes take three to five hours, SRS volumetric check averages between 10 and 30 minutes. With regular use and an automated setup, it may require even less time. Once SRS is placed in a machine’s workspace, the accompanying SRS software analyzes the data to verify alignment and accuracy.

Applications

  • Verify production and measuring machines (machine tools, CMMs, robots, etc.)
  • Correlate CMM and CNC machines to determine appropriate calibration cycles
  • Optimize CMM performance
  • Provide rapid checks of articulating-arm portable CMMs, laser trackers, systems, etc.

What’s Included

  • Complete SRS Assembly Kit: Includes six bars in the size of your choice, as well as four precision steel spheres; standard sizes range from 180mm to 2,000 mm, but smaller or larger custom sizes are available.
  • SRS Software: Intuitive software is available through a flexible subscription model.
  • Mounting Kit and Extensions: These optional products make it easy to adapt the SRS system to your specific needs.
  • Carrying Case: Rugged case ensures easy and safe transport of your SRS system.

Benefits

  • Significantly reduced time for machine verification
  • User independent
  • Quick and easy setup
  • Reduce machine downtime
  • Consistent verification eliminates scrap and rework
  • Insensitive to temperature, pressure, and humidity
  • Lightweight and easy to transport
  • Mountable
  • Ideal for 2-D, 3-D, 4th, and 5th axis applications
  • Repeatable, reproducible, and highly accurate
  • Can be automated through use of a pallet system

Rapid, Precise, and Wireless Gap Measurement


WISEgap 2.4 — a sensor-controlled wireless gap measurement system — is a breakthrough product from Inora that eliminates the need for clumsy feeler gauges, clay, calipers, mechanical gauges, and thumbscrews. We used the power of our core Math Engine to make strain-gauge-based displacement measurements and wireless data acquisition reliable, quick, and incredibly accurate. Our portable system enables you to take static or dynamic measurements anywhere — from the factory floor to on-the-ground testing.

Applications

From manufacturing to robotics, WISEgap 2.4 sensors can be used to measure gaps between any corresponding surfaces. Popular applications include:

  • Automotive: Door, decklid, hood, and tailgate gap measurement
  • Aerospace: Closures and shimming
  • Fixtures: Meisterblock and gap

What’s Included

  • Sensors: Each kit comes standard with 12 sensors, though we can provide more via custom order. Featuring a steel body and a leaf spring, each sensor attaches to a surface via integrated magnets. The accuracy of each sensor is +/- .03 mm.
  • Shims:Decklid shims, as well as shims measuring between 2.5mm and 7.5mm, are included. We can also create custom adaptors for any application.
  • Transceivers: Each transceiver is clearly printed with a number for easy identification, and comes with a rechargeable battery.
  • Calibration Kit: Calibrate your sensors in under one minute with our certified gauge, which conforms to ISO 10360-2.
  • Base Station: The USB-operated base station connects to any computer and can receive data from an unlimited number of transceivers.
  • Carrying Case: Each rugged carrying case holds 12 sensors and accompanying equipment. It can be wheeled for easy transport.
  • Software: Our easy-to-use software enables instant recording of door-fit conditions, statistical analysis, and more.
  • Warranty: All hardware is covered by a one-year warranty.

Benefits

  • Optimize door-fit conditions
  • Validate consistency of manufacturing and assembly processes during pilot and mass production
  • Prevent and diagnose wind noise, water leakage, and squeak or rattle problems
  • Reduce end customer warranty claims
  • Reduce production and manufacturing costs
  • Rely on accuracy of +/- .03mm
  • Capture readings in real time for both static and dynamic environments (one reading per second)
  • Measure dynamically with our data logging feature, which captures 2,600 measurements per second
  • Integrate with other data collection devices and software
