Instruments for size inspection of the types VP and VM can be upgraded to accommodate longitudinal dynamic measurements. This upgrade includes a longitudinal dynamic adapter and the respective electronic measuring unit in combination with the gear and spline software LdynPro.
With this configuration it is possible to dynamically and reproducibly capture the dimension over/between balls across the full length of the gearing during inspection. In addition, the longitudinal dynamic evaluation also reveals form errors such as crowning, conicality and roundness on the workpiece. Simple statistical values such as Cp and Cpk can also be calculated.
All measured values as well as shift and machine operator data can be displayed on the monitor or exported into an ASCII file and can then be evaluated by an external SPC software.
This longitudinal dynamic evaluation process ensures reproducible measurement results.
