Thickness, Diameter Gaging System

From: Marketing Department @ Cincinnati Automation

Cincinnati Automation releases a part Thickness, Diameter Gaging System designed to measure parts to accuracies as tight as 1um.

The system included two Keyence GT2 series digital contact sensors with custom tips, integrated air push devices and RS232 communications ports. Parts were operator loaded into the gaging stations where they were automatically detected and checked.

The PLC based control system transmitted the gage measurement results, part number, time and date to high speed industrial printers where operators were able to quickly peel and stick labels on parts as they were gaged. A user friendly touch screen HMI was used to display gaging results, for part number selection, and to display good, bad and total part counts.

CA’s inspection and gaging systems can be programmed to transmit pass/fail results to customer’s PC for ongoing data collection. CA offers a complete line of gaging and inspection systems to process a wide range of part geometry and sizes. These systems could include high resolution machine vision cameras, laser displacement sensors, laser micrometers or 2D profiling lasers along with the material handling and automation to support the project requirements.
