BETTER PRODUCTION MMS OCTOBER 2018 98 PART GAGING done prior to CMM measurement. Edge detection issues such as part surface contamination, surface texture and reflectivity restrictions, and edge dispersion can remain problematic, Mr. Keller says. However, averaging several diameter measure- ments of the part rotated about its axis enables erroneous measurements to be detected and remeasured. Circumferential averaging also factors a part's out- of-round variations into the composite diameter measurement. Having gotten used to the micrometer's par- ticular sensitivities and limitations, Mr. Keller says that the benefits are nevertheless multiple. "It compares favorably to CMMs with 1-micron first-term volumetric accuracy specifications," Mr. Keller says. | The Timken Co. | 234-262-3000 | ROLLIN', ROLLIN', ROLLIN' Read Peter Zelinski's June issue article about The Timken Co.'s evolution since World War II, including how gaging has changed over the years: Service You Can Trust Here at Mitsubishi Electric, we strive to ensure your machines are running at optimal levels by providing you with a wide variety of services you can trust.
