ADCOLE Camshaft Inspection Gage Features Programmable Moving Tailstock

MARLBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - Nov 13, 2012) - ADCOLE Corporation has introduced an upgraded camshaft inspection gage that permits fast change-over of different length parts and lets operators load and inspect them rapidly.

The ADCOLE Model 1304 Multi-Headed Camshaft Gage provides parts inspection with one minute cycle times, measures 3,600 data points per revolution, and can be loaded automatically by gantry or manually. Featuring four programmable moving heads and a tailstock with 6" travel, this cam tester allows parts access from a touch screen, handles different length parts, and each of the heads can move to a park position for easy access.

Incorporating an accurate headstock spindle with high-resolution glass scale angle encoder systems, the ADCOLE Model 1304 Multi-Headed Camshaft Gage permits on- or off-line programming. Menu-driven, this camshaft inspection machine has dual Windows 7® computers and can measure 20 different parameters including roundness (LSC, MIC, MZC), diameter (LSC, 2-point), profile, taper, crown, timing angle, velocity, acceleration, runout, and concentricity.

The ADCOLE Model 1304 Multi-Headed Camshaft Gage is priced from $395,000.00. Price quotations are provided upon request.
