Run-Out, Inspection Machine

From: Marketing Department @ Cincinnati Automation

Run-Out Inspection MachineCincinnati Automation releases an automatic run-out inspection machine for cylinders, rods and pistons.

The machine can be programmed for a wide range of part lengths and diameters. The heart of the system is a set of Keyence LKG series laser displacement sensors. These sensors can have repeatability as tight as 0.01um, based on the desired measuring range.

Other features include a precision load cell to confirm part weight, quick part number selection and inspection results displayed via a touch screen HMI.

A servo was used to provide optimum part loading height, to position the part for assembly & test operations, and to lower the finished part for unloading. Good parts are released to the operator while rejected parts are contained in the test machine.
