Crankshaft / camshaft measurement

Due to the special design of our measuring technology, we can offer you a measuring device with higher stability and accuracy.

Crankshaft / camshaft measuring device with high-precision tailstock and headstock. Can be easily and quickly converted to different component types by means of interchangeable measuring units.

In combination with a crankshaft final inspection automation, this rounds off the crankshaft measuring system.

Final inspection automation for crankshafts or other components / component groups

With this crankshaft final inspection automation, the crankshafts are transferred from the customer’s gantry loader at the transfer position and accepted. The component data are transferred via the interface so that the test results can be stored in relation to the component. In positions 2 to 4 on the rotary indexing table, the various inspection tasks are performed by two robots. First, the position of the component on the tool carrier is checked via the built-in camera system, and the test programme is adapted to the position. After the task, the individual test equipment is taken over by the robot from the pre-storage for test equipment or screwdrivers and clamped via an O-clamping system. The tests are carried out at the various positions and the results are transmitted to the measuring computer via a radio system.

The crankshaft final inspection automation is designed in such a way that it can be quickly adapted to other crankshafts. For this purpose, the changing supports and test units can be exchanged quickly and easily. Good accessibility is possible via two secured doors.

This concept can easily be transferred to other components / component groups.

Crankshaft measuring automation for the dynamic measurement of crankshafts

This basic crankshaft measuring automation is designed for 100% measurement of crankshafts in the production line. It can be adapted to different crankshafts via an exchange unit. Here, all main bearings, auxiliary bearings and pin bearings are measured dynamically. In this version, the pin bearings are measured one after the other, an extension with further measuring units for pin bearings for simultaneous measurement is possible.

Measuring procedure: The crankshafts are transferred from the customer’s gantry loader to the transfer position and taken over. The component data are transferred to the automated measuring system so that the measurement results can be stored in relation to the component. The pre-deposit is moved into measuring position with the crankshaft, the centre points are fed and the measuring air is switched on. The rotary drive is started and the measuring units are fed. The first dynamic measurement is carried out (stroke bearing 1), the partial result is stored and the measuring fork for the stroke bearings is moved to measuring position 2. The second partial measurement is carried out and this is repeated on all other lifting bearings. After the last measurement, the final result is stored in the computer, displayed and output at the interface for further processing. All measuring units move into rest position, the rotary drive is stopped, the measuring air is switched off and the crankshaft is moved into transfer position. The crankshaft can be removed from the customer’s gantry loader.
