At every stage of manufacturing, there is an opportunity for automation. Unfortunately, many manufactures often let perceived barriers keep them from implementing complete machine or process automation. With this mindset, they end up limiting their productivity by automating only one or two aspects of the process or not automating at all.
LK Metrology upgraded CMMs with scanning technology.
At the U.S. transmission plant of a global automotive manufacturing group, component inspection times have been reduced by half or more by upgrading the company’s coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) to incorporate 5-axis scanning technology in addition to touch probing.
Metrology used to drive QA in Industry 4.0
When looking at the place of metrology in the “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” it is interesting to ponder whether Industry 4.0 is being driven by developments in metrology or metrology developments are being driven by Industry 4.0.
On its 80th anniversary, the KEO brand looks ahead to the future. The company's long-range strategy is to build upon the trust and reputation of the brand and to acquire diverse, complementary companies to drive overall growth.

To ensure the surfaces on the gears are optimized, it is essential to use metrology tools to analyze, understand, and characterize.
The package consists of a double batch centrifugal disk finishing machine with fully automatic work piece handling, a rotary dryer and a fully automatic centrifuge for cleaning and recycling of the process water.
Improved productivity, increased production capacity, better quality and lower costs were the demands of a leading garden tool manufacturer when they invested in a mass finishing system for deburring and polishing of garden shear knives. Rösler met this challenge.
While a user may encounter several challenges when machining threads, asking five questions can aid in building the foundation for a successful application.
A sump cleaner filters the fluid it removes from the sump, making it possible to pump the filtered fluid back into the sump. This reduces both the need for new coolant concentrate purchase and disposal.
Fluid recycling is valuable. Companies can save up to 60 percent of the coolant concentrate by removing tramp oils and solids through filtration.
Medical mold manufacturers' product specifications require exact tolerances, absolute precision, and sophisticated tool paths. Multi-axis CNC machine technology is helping these companies reach these lofty specification goals.
The use of fully-autonomous digital factories is expected to double over the next five years, according to Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC).
Advanced tool holders with precision coolant improve cost-efficiency in steel turning.
