We Make It Possible
Producing today’s advanced technological products, from mobile phones to medical devices, requires measurements of incredibly small magnitude. Developers call us because of our reputation as partners—working alongside them to provide unique solutions to their unique measurement problems. A significant portion of our sales includes custom designs to suit specific applications. The development of the next generation of high-tech products requires tiny measurements—we make it possible.
We have worked with research universities, national laboratories, and some of the world’s largest and smallest companies to solve position measurement problems in a multitude of industries — disk drive, semiconductor, manufacturing, metal forming, automotive, packaging. We are a machine designer’s best friend.
Need solutions for your project?
SpindleCheck™ is a system of hardware, software, and sensors that easily measures a machine’s capability to produce parts to spec. and creates reports that make that information accessible to everyone who needs to know.
Part rejection, spindle failure, and unexpected down time hurt your ability to deliver to your customers. Preserve your reputation and save time, money and frustration – know how your machine is performing. You don’t have to guess. Be confident. Know your machine tool.
It’s well known that measuring machine performance is a valuable practice that affects the bottom line. Many high-precision shops regularly use a telescoping ballbar to measure and track machine performance. Spindle performance also plays a major role in part quality and in lost machine time due to failure; why wouldn’t you measure that too? Now you can.
Making Machine Tool Measurements
Quick and Easy Measurement
The system is designed to setup less than five minutes. Run the spindle at your desired test speeds and know how the spindle is performing in just a few minutes.
Wireless Sensor System
Four noncontact probes mount in a magnetic base on the table. A high-precision target pin is placed in the tool holder. Connect the probes to the battery-operated, wireless electronics, move the pin into position in front of the probes and you’re ready to measure.
Software running on a nearby laptop or tablet connects wirelessly to the sensor system so you can run doors-closed. The software takes and presents the measurement results on screen and in printed reports
