Success Story: Automotive Body Gauge Inspection
Allied Automation received a letter of thanks from our client’s plant manager stating that no other gauging system had been installed in his facility, passed Gauge R&R and FAT, and been put immediately into production during his time with the company.
The featured machine tool is used to perform a number of measurements (precision gauging, internal feature measurement, hole presence, etc.) on automotive valve lash adjusters prior to a machining operation. Measurement of many products features required the development of specialized probes and measurement techniques. Some features inspected are measured as precisely within two-tenths of a Micron (0.0002mm).
A Stelron Precision Link Chassis was used to provide synchronous motion of the product nests in conjunction with the rise and fall of measurements devices. This design approach guarantees that sensitive measurement devices cannot be damaged.
At the core of the machine is a Stelron Precision Link Indexing Chain. The control is an Allen Bradley SLC 5/05 PLC using DeviceNet Distributed I/O combined with a Cutler Hammer e-Pro Operator interface panel.
