Control 2017 Measuring innovations inline with Industry 4.0
Germany/USA – Recent developments by Taylor Hobson include the Talyrond HS that delivers multi-part measurement without the loss of data, the i-Series Multi Axis system for automated measurement of large components and the Form Talysurf PGI CNC for high automated high accuracy measurement of small components.
According to the company, all products deliver an in-depth understanding of characteristics such as surface finish, contour, form, radius, roundness and harmonic analysis and can provide vital feedback for improvements in design and production.
The new Talyrond 500 HS with its carousel system is a high-precision, multi-part roundness measuring system, making it a multi-part measurement system. The unique counterbalanced design of the carousel system ensures measurement to the instruments specification. This portable device sits on the spindle table via three point location and plugs into a concealed socket. Control is provided via the company’s Ultra software to enable fully automated measurement of multiple parts. Talyrond 500 HS is ideal for high-volume throughput, with no-operator attendance and reduced set-up time.
The company has joined the Industry 4.0 revolution – Automation must be flexible enough to deal with rapidly changing product components, it says. Its new Form Talysurf i-Series Multi-Axis systems deliver automated surface finish, form and contour measurement at the touch of a button. The system can be programmed to individual requirements including the analysis of crankshafts, heads, blocks and gear-box casings.
These measuring systems will be showcased at Control in Hall 4, Booth 4502.
