Universal Measuring Machines

Universal measuring machines record various characteristics of gears and splines in relation to an axis.

FRENCO offers different variants of machines that are set with masters. Your batch size and test frequency defines the suitability of one or the other machine. From manual probing of geometrical elements, through to automatic, process-integrated test equipment, FRENCO offers a custom-made solution. Basically, there are two types:

Machines with Ball Probe

 

  • Runout, roundness and diametrical size on cylindrical elements
  • Axial runout, flatness and distances on plane faces
  • Pitch, runout, tooth thickness, lead and tip diameter in relation to an axis on gears and splines
  • Probing on gears and splines is based on double flank contact

Multipoint Machines

 

  • Runout, roundness and diametrical size on cylindrical elements
  • Double flank gear test on gears
  • Rolling inspection on splines
  • Evaluation of measurement results in relation to a defined axis
