- Laser Radar: The Next Generation CMM (Oct 4, 2016).
The Nikon Metrology’s Laser Radar system has become a proven solution for customers looking to upgrade from the traditional well known CMM. Companies are rethinking the speed and accuracy of their current large-scale inline inspection processes. The completely automatable Laser Radar system is a non-contact measuring device with up to a 50 meter range and accuracies similar to a horizontal arm CMM. Parts can be measured in the same location where they are manufactured shortening the trouble shooting process and saving both time and money.
Join us for this innovative webinar to learn about the next generation in CMM technology.
- Introduction of New High Accuracy, High Speed Non-Contact 3D Gear Measuring System: HN-C3030 (Aug 18, 2016).
Gears are typically measured with contact scanning probes on either a dedicated gear measurement machine or on a 4-axis Coordinate Measurement Machine (CMM).
Until now! Nikon metrology has recently released the HN-C3030. A 5-axis, laser scanning, gear measurement machine. The HN-C3030 allows full measurement of teeth at much higher speeds than traditional gear measurement machines whilst retaining high levels accuracy. This full tooth measurement shows additional defects on the teeth, like cutter marks, that cannot be detected by contact probes and can lead to vibration, excess noise and wear.
- Laser Radar: next-generation CMM for shop floor automotive BIW inspection (Apr 13, 2016).
Innovative inspection stations are being installed today, both lineside and offline, by major automotive OEMs using Nikon Metrology’s Laser Radar.
In this recorded webinar, we explain how the non-contact, automated Laser Radar is providing OEMs with an effective alternative to the shortcomings of CMMs and fixed inline camera systems for body-in white (BIW) and flush-and-gap inspections.
We outline the key features of Laser Radar, its ability to inspect almost any material, colour or surface texture and how it easily interfaces with most common industrial robots.
As OEMs continue to push the limits of automotive design with new shapes, materials and processes, Laser Radar meets the challenge with a high-speed solution, robust enough to be deployed directly on the factory floor.
- Micro Computed Tomography inspects structural integrity of AM parts (Apr 6, 2016).
Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) is frequently used today to produce automotive or aerospace components that require 100% failure-free operation.
Complex product designs use minimum amounts of material to lower component weights without sacrificing on structural integrity. AM also allows us to produce parts with complex internal structures (e.g. cooling channels) that are impossible to inspect with standard surface measurement techniques. Due to the expensive nature of these AM parts, traditional destructive inspection (e.g by slicing) is not an option for manufacturers.
- Industrial micro-CT: From the research lab to the production line (Feb 17, 2016).
Typically X-ray micro computed tomography (CT) has been seen as a slow process carried out in the research lab to evaluate failures or spot defects. It has never been fast enough to be used on a production line – that is until now! Recent advances in high-resolution high-flux rotating targets for X-ray sources, coupled with easy automation of CT scanning parameters and analysis techniques allow samples to be scanned, reconstructed and evaluated in under two minutes, opening many new CT applications.
- Explore the “Smaller World” of the Automotive Industry with the JCM-6000 Plus SEM (Nov 12, 2015).
In the world of manufacturing today it seems as though everything is getting smaller and smaller. This presents a challenge for companies to not only produce but also inspect components at a microscopic level. For years many, metalworking and automotive companies have used traditional microscopes for inspection; however these microscopes are often limited by their resolution and depth of field. Companies are finding themselves turning to scanning electron microscopes to meet these demanding requirements.
