Screw Machine & Precision Turned Products

Mectron provides both V-track and flat track inspection systems for precision turned, lScrew Machine Precision turned productsow profile and through- feed cylindrical parts.

Mectron provides high speed inspection systems by utilizing multiple methods specifically designed for the most critical details of precision turned components. The ‟Qualifier” uses Mectron’s patented lasers for high speed gauging and inspection for an unlimited variety of products in a wide range of materials. Utilizing MECTRON’S patented laser array, the Qualifier provides 360° inspection of each piece, displays its dimensions on the computer touch screen, and automatically inspects the part features and measurements.

The ‟Qualifier” automatically discards any parts that do not meet the customer’s specifications such as oversized and undersized lengths/diameters, chip wraps, short feeds, bar ends aLowprofile1nd missed operations. Parts that pose special challenges due to part orientation from piece to piece can be inspected and gauged utilizing the “Qualifier’s” extensive software capabilities.

In addition to laser technology, Mectron utilizes MI9000 Magnetic Imagery™, an advanced eddy current technique which provides the most complete on-the-fly metallurgical inspection available on the market today. The instrument develops a magnetic image of each part as it passes through the Qualifier to create the part’s unique signature. This full signature provides the opportunity to detect the most critical metallurgical defects such as cracks (bar seams), material mixes, conductive plating, and hardness by a visual deviation in the magnetic image displayed. Acceptable limits can be quickly defined using the touch screen programming capabilities.

The addition of vision inspection in either single or multiScrewmachine1ple CCD camera configurations to any Mectron System provides capabilities to check for ID non-conforming and through-hole applications. The combination of Mectron’s 360° laser array, Magnetic Imagery™ eddy current and vision technologies provides the end user with the most advanced inspection machine available in the market today at speeds up to 500ppm.
