ADCOLE Camshaft Measuring Machine Features New Narrow Follower Heads

MARLBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2013) -  ADCOLE Corporation has introduced a robot-fed 100% camshaft inspection gage that features a new measuring head design which accommodates six cam lobes per valve with close spacing.

The ADCOLE 1310 High-Speed Camshaft Gage is designed for robot-fed 100% camshaft inspection and features new 19 mm wide measuring heads that are capable of measuring six cam lobes per cylinder with up to 32 measuring heads. Capable of rapid changeovers automatically, this camshaft inspection machine has a programmable headstock with 100 mm travel, a programmable tailstock, and achieves 0.1 micron resolution per data point, or 3,600 data points per revolution.

Available with a fast disconnect system for easy setup and reconfiguration, the ADCOLE 1310 High-Speed Camshaft Gage measures 10 or more parameters including radius, profile, taper, crown, timing angle, diameter, velocity, acceleration, run-out, roundness, and chatter analysis. Standard features include dual computers, embedded Windows XP® software, GE Fanuc® motion controllers, and graphic display plotting all relevant statuses.

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