Multi-Sensor System Provides Single Set-up

Klingelnberg, a leading manufacturer of precision measuring centers, will showcase its multi-sensor technologies at the upcoming Control Expo in Stuttgart April 24 – 27 2018, Booth 6310 Hall 6.

Klingelnberg precision measuring centers are used throughout the world for the accurate measurement of gears and axially symmetrical components providing reliable measurements not just in measurement rooms and geometry labs but also on the production-floor.

Klingelnberg optical metrology is a smart hybrid multi-sensor system combining tactile and optical metrology with automatic rapid changeover between tactile and optical sensors combining the advantages of both measurement techniques. Pure optical measurement is also possible allowing complete 3D digitizing of components with measurements taking the form of a high-resolution 3D point cloud which can be for evaluation against CAD.

“The development work for optical metrology is based on a number of factors,” explains Georg Mies, Head of Precision Measuring Center Development at Klingelnberg. “These include our many years of experience in a range of research projects, our close contact with sensor developers, and our good relationship with technical universities and institutes.  Our ongoing dialog with customers, combined with decades of experience in gear metrology, means we are very familiar with the requirements of optical metrology.”

Klingenberg multi-sensor technology can replace up to four conventional measuring devices: gear measurement, general coordinate measurement, form measurement and roughness measurement. Every measurement task can be fully automated in a CNC controlled measuring procedure with a single part setup. The Klingelnberg roughness measurement system has already been successfully delivered in several hundred machines and also includes measurement of the surface measurement of internal gears.
