The science of metrology is seemingly calm on the surface but has extensive depth of very technical concepts. Metrology is the science of measurement and incorporates aspects of many diverse fields such as mathematics, statistics, physics, quality, chemistry and computer science-all applied with a little common sense. Because metrology work is interspersed with other job duties, many rely on knowledge of metrology, but the science is intimately understood by only a small percentage.
Modern meteorological concepts increasingly link the topics of measurement traceability, laboratory accreditation, and quality assurance programs to the topic of measurement uncertainty.
When it comes to measurement and inspection, if a part is out of tolerance, an operator may be quick to blame the machine or manufacturing process. Rarely does an operator consider that a gauge or hand tool could be the problem. However, these measurement devices are frequently used in harsh environments, making them susceptible to inconsistent results. In a manufacturing environment focused on producing quality parts with tight tolerances, gauge and hand tool calibration is necessary for success.
In the quality world, air gaging ranks with micrometers, calipers, comparators, scales, CMMs and many other instruments in that they are all considered measurement and test equipment (M&TE).
Air gauging gives you a fast measurement device that provides superior reliability in the dirtiest shop environment, but you give up things such as measurement range and a clear delineation of surface. Air gauging has about 10 to 20 percent of the range of a typical electronic transducer with similar resolution.
- A cutting-edge 3D laser scanner for the new generation of Absolute Arm portable measuring arm systems was launched in 2018.
- Combined with the numerous usability features built into the new generation of Absolute Arm models, the RS6 is laser-focused on making it easier to scan better. This new RS6 Laser Scanner offers extremely high-density point-cloud data collection at high speeds and high accuracy.
- The RS6 delivers unmatched productivity improvements over competing scanning solutions through the introduction of SHINE.
For manufacturers of high tech products, it is critical to maintaining the reputation and bottom line of the company. Costly returns and any complaints from clients will inevitably hurt profits and can cause a public relations nightmare. These services help manufacturers avoid and detect defective products before they reach consumers when the right analyses are employed during production and prior to product shipping. Gained prominence in the industry as one of the illustrious organizations, we are engaged in providing Third Party Inspection Services.
A coordinate measuring machine (CMM) is a device that measures the geometry of physical objects by sensing discrete points on the surface of the object with a probe. Various types of probes are used in CMMs, including mechanical, optical, laser, and white light.
Metrology is the science of measurement. Dimensional metrology is that branch of Metrology which deals with the measurement of dimensions of a part or work piece (lengths, angles, etc.)
Air gauging allows you to measure many jobs faster, more conveniently, and more accurately than by using other gaging methods.
Dimensional measurements at the required level of accuracy are the essential link between the designer’s intent and a delivered product. The width, depth, angles and other dimensions all must be produced and measured accurately for the machine tool to function as expected.
Air gauges or more precisely dimensional air gages, are measuring devices that use air nozzles to sense the surface to be measured. Using this technique, the air is passed to one or more sensing nozzles and the resulting flow is measured by the air gage readout that is calibrated to display in linear dimensions. This technology was introduced in the 1940s, and since the 1950s has gained wide acceptance as a highly precise means of measuring internal and external diameters as well as many other features
As the manufacturing continues to grow and adoption of automation is on the rise, statistical process control (SPC) software gives you real-time visibility into your manufacturing process, so you can measure your performance and progress toward process and quality improvement.
Ever-increasing accuracy requirements and declining cycle times are creating the need for rapid, precise measurement directly in the production environment. Shaft measurement systems are ideal for automotive, aerospace, and medical industry applications, to name a few.
Shafts contain a number of functional elements, such as gears, grooves, splines, tapers, and threads. Which all have associated critical dimensions.
