Initial situation:

Circularity and Runout Measurements

The client is producing circular grinders which need to be assessed for their runout and their inner-outer circularity. Today, this company uses manual measurement techniques in the lab to determine their tolerance fidelity. Additionally, the client checks produced items only by probing (taking samples from the production line to investigate), so that the assessed fraction of the total number is very small.

Particular challenges

Circular grinders are large and bulky items, and circularity and runout measurements are sophisticated procedures which require extra time and effort for manual analysis. Tolerance of the client is at the micrometer level, which complicates manual measurement further.

QuellTech solution

Contactless QuellTech Q6-15-82 Laser Scanner can achieve 100% surface evaluation and 100% inline testing with high repeatability – at a cycle time of only 5 seconds. Several Laser Scanners can be mounted, one inspecting the inner circle, the other one outer circle and surface at the same time. The 3D Point Clouds obtained with almost 5 million points can be integrated in any sophisticated measurement algorithm to satisfy the customer’s needs in micrometer precision level.

Benefits for the client

Thanks to QuellTech’s fast and innovative Q6-15-82 laser scanners, the client can achieve a shorter and more accurate control mechanism for the production line. The fully automated quality control system enables the client to save extra labor cost. Another benefit is the reduction of false positives, which significantly improved the confidence in the reliability of the quality.
