The manual exchange and the associated repositioning of different workpieces or multiple measuring points generally take time. Such set-up times can be kept to a minimum with the right accessories. Unproductive machine times are therefore reduced, resulting in greater throughput.
Fischer provides the skis for Nordic skiing’s global elite. One factor for success or failure is how the boards are cut. The manufacturer’s team of experts conduct measurements with an ACCRETECH SURFCOM TOUCH 50 to ensure that the skis have exactly the right roughness.
In the Solution Center, interested parties will obtain comprehensive information and advice about the services and products offered. With the new Solution Center in Coventry ACCRETECH can now continue its strategy of customer proximity and local roots in the UK, Ireland and Northern Europe.
The requirements for quality assurance in the automotive industry are changing. Spindles and ball bearings in electric cars, for example, must have an extremely high surface quality in order to avoid vibrations and keep noise levels as low as possible. High-precision measuring devices can help to increase efficiency in electromobility and thus provide a competitive advantage.
Frankfurt-born Marcus Czabon has been working for technology companies for many years, focusing on industrial metrology and machine tool building. He has been head of the Metrology division at ACCRETECH Europe in his adopted city of Munich since April 2020.
Any unbalance in a grinding wheel lowers the quality of a workpiece and costs money. In the worst-case scenario, downtimes occur. Automatic balancing systems permanently monitor the spindle vibrations and automatically correct grinding wheel unbalance within prescribed vibration tolerances.
Today, data is more important than ever in series production. The storage, analysis and evaluation of collected data volumes can contribute to the control of the plants and can be incorporated into the production process. A prerequisite for this is the simple recording and management of the available data.
Measurements in a production environment, digital factory, additive manufacturing – ACCRETECH Europe Managing Director Wolfgang Bonatz talks about the current trends in quality assurance.
Geometrically complex workpieces are almost always a challenge for metrology, because size and shape make it difficult to reach the measuring points. However, especially with high-precision components, it is essential that tolerances are maintained. Therefore, Pankl Aerospace Systems was looking for a flexible solution for the quality assurance of their drive shafts.
At the GrindTec 2020, ACCRETECH SBS will present an even wider range of advanced process control equipment for grinding technology in Hall 5 Stand 5076. It is the first joint trade fair appearance of ACCRETECH (Europe) GmbH and ACCRETECH SBS UK.
