Marposs, a specialist in measurement, inspection and test technologies, has announced a new generation of its Optoquick measuring system, which combines a touch measuring system and an automatic stylus changing system. Within a measuring cycle, the contact sensor stylus can automatically be exchanged with the new multi-axis G65 contact gauge, enabling measurement of non-visible features such as key slots, depth and angle, holes, flat surfaces and axial run-outs to accomplish specific measurements with the appropriate stylus model.
The Optoquick’s features enable it to measure transmission shafts where spline and gear features such as OBR, ODB and pitch run-out need to be measured together with traditional measurement of the solid bearing portions. It combines a touch measuring sensor with non-contact optical scanning to provide measurements while the part is rotating.
Marposs says the Optoquick can be reconfigured in case of a part change, or a single Optoquick unit can be simultaneously used for different parts from different stages in the same production. Two models and a total of five sizes are available. The system can handle parts up to 240 mm diameter x 1,200 mm long, with a weight of up to 60 kg. Depending upon the model, the Optoquick unit can be manually or automatically loaded.
It features SPC software with measurement result presentation, visual auto-diagnosis notification and capability for multi-format data exportation.
