Gear Measurement Software

Software from Werth, Giessen, Germany, enables the measurement of any involute gear, as well as worms, worm wheels, and face gears. The method can be used to measure internal and external teeth, for straight and helical gears. The user selects all the geometric properties to be measured with the click of a mouse. Based on the entered parameters, GearMeasure automatically creates the measurement sequence, including travel paths. The parameters and measurement tasks are saved with the associated scanning paths or point distributions for later measurements and can be edited easily.

Horizontal Machining Center

Enshu USA, Schaumburg, IL, has introduced a new horizontal machining center. Compact and nimble, the GE40H is said to be ideal for secondary operations and die cast processing. It has a standard ramtype 33.5 HP 12,000 RPM Big Plus/CAT40 taper spindle. The 500 mm (19.7 in.) axis that travels (X, Y, Z) plus a full 4th (B) axis, give it flexibility for small to mid-size parts machining. Standard features include a FANUC 31iMB Control, 400 mm pallets, rotary automatic pallet changer, and a 40-tool capacity magazine.

Robot Calibration Software

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, North Kingstown, RI, today has released a new solution for the calibration and performance testing of industrial robot systems. The RoboDyn software package, created in collaboration with the developers of SpatialAnalyzer, works in conjunction with a Leica Absolute Tracker to allow for the direct calculation of robot characteristics such as base and tool alignments and full DH parameters. The calibration module provides a fast and intuitive process for aligning the robot with the laser tracker and then calibrating the robot's kinematic configuration to improve absolute positioning accuracy.

Clutch Brakes

Clutch brakes available from Force Control Industries, Fairfield, OH, feature oil shear technology for rapid and precise stopping, starting, speed change, and positioning, all without adjustment or maintenance. Ideal for applications with frequent start/stop cycles, such as indexing conveyors, rotary tables, and batch feeders, the Posidyne® motion control devices allow higher cycle rates (up to 300 cycles per minute), to increase production rates with lower downtime. The brakes are designed with low inertia cycling components.
