ADCOLE Camshaft Measuring Machine Features Increased Part Changeover Flexibility

MARLBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2013) - ADCOLE Corporation is introducing an upgraded gage for robot-fed 100% automotive camshaft inspection that has a new programmable headstock with 100 mm travel to handle most camshaft families.

The ADCOLE 1310 High-Speed Camshaft Gage features a new automatic program-able headstock along with an existing programmable tailstock that increases machine flexibility and provides rapid changeover for most camshaft families. Capable of handling changeovers automatically, this camshaft gage measures 10 or more parameters including radius, profile, taper, crown, timing angle, diameter, velocity, acceleration, run-out, roundness and concentricity.

Providing 0.1 micron resolution per data point, or 3,600 data points per revolution, the ADCOLE 1310 High-Speed Camshaft Gage can process up to 200 parts-per-hour. Standard features include dual computers, Windows XP® embedded software, GE Fanuc® motion controllers, and a graphic display that lets operators monitor throughput with green, yellow and red plots depicting in-tolerance, reaching control limits, and out of tolerance status.

The ADCOLE 1310 High-Speed Camshaft Gage is priced from $475,000.00. Literature and price quotations are available upon request.

About ADCOLE Corporation

ADCOLE Corporation is the global center of expertise for designing and manufacturing the world's highest accuracy machines for measuring camshafts, crankshafts and pistons, as well as digital sun angle sensors for space satellites. No other company can better measure critically important reciprocating engine components or the angle to the sun.

Founded in 1957, Adcole has manufacturing facilities in both Massachusetts and Florida and offices across the world, maintaining close relationships with their customers. The company's success, to a large extent, is based upon responding to their customers' requests for further refinements based upon their real-world experience. Most of these refinements have dealt with the need for higher accuracy and the need to measure more parameters including radius, profile, taper, crown, timing angle, diameter, velocity, acceleration, runout, and roundness and concentricity.
