M62 Flex Manual Bench Gage System

Marposs Corp. has introduced its new M62 Flex manual bench gage system. Created for the production environment, this gage provides the flexibility to measure gears with different diameters without mechanical retooling. Utilizing a universal reference “Vee” on a 30-degree angle eliminates the need of using an ID centering post (or nosepiece) to locate each part for measuring, and it reduces setup time.

The gage employs servo-driven actuators and is the first smart gage that integrates “soft-touch” technology when engaging with the gear being measured. Soft-touch technology addresses the age-old issue where green parts and master parts could be damaged by the measuring contacts. The M62 soft-touch technology employs a software routine where the measuring group is able to approach a gear surface in velocity mode, with a controlled low force, while the position error is monitored, resulting in better control of the process and avoiding damage.

The M62 Flex can inspect odd or even toothed helical and spur gears with external diameters from 30 ÷ 180 mm, heights ranging from 15 ÷ 40 mm and modules from 1 to 4. It has mechanical turrets with capacity to locate up to 12 contacts each and is suited for inspecting DOB (MdK), major diameter and minor diameter.
