TGA — Top Gauge Absolute

April 27, 2017

Balance Systems' Top Gauge Absolute (TGA) helps to improve precision and efficiency in manufacturing processes through an accurate measuring of workpiece diameter. It combines a Balance Systems TG200 gauge head with state-of-the-art mechatronic solutions for a quick measuring process and high accuracy. It measures all diameters within its measurement range, with pre/in/post-process cycle, with no need to reset the single diameter.

Features include:

  • Two simultaneous measuring processes; availability in combination with the measurement of the  axial position (active or passive flagging)
  • 32 part programs
  • Measuring of smooth and interrupted surfaces
  • In-process roundness and shape analysis
  • Six commands to control the infeed
  • Thermal compensation
  • Remote programming

Benefits of the system:

  • Allows productions to be stable and consistent and with tight tolerances
  • Compensates the grinding wheel wear
  • Increases productivity
  • Can be implemented both on new and existing machines in the field (retrofitting)
  • Easy to use
  • Does not require surveillance

  • grinding

    grinding

    Machining operation in which material is removed from the workpiece by a powered abrasive wheel, stone, belt, paste, sheet, compound, slurry, etc. Takes various forms: surface grinding (creates flat and/or squared surfaces); cylindrical grinding (for external cylindrical and tapered shapes, fillets, undercuts, etc.); centerless grinding; chamfering; thread and form grinding; tool and cutter grinding; offhand grinding; lapping and polishing (grinding with extremely fine grits to create ultrasmooth surfaces); honing; and disc grinding.

  • grinding wheel

    grinding wheel

    Wheel formed from abrasive material mixed in a suitable matrix. Takes a variety of shapes but falls into two basic categories: one that cuts on its periphery, as in reciprocating grinding, and one that cuts on its side or face, as in tool and cutter grinding.
