Getting to the bottom of tooth flanks - Image
If the surface of the tooth flanks of gears is too rough, the gears wear down too quickly. This is why the tooth flanks or tooth gaps must be checked during production for their defined surface roughness at a highly accurate measuring station. KAPP NILES, a world-leading manufacturer of machines...
Practice Video: Wireless measurements – MarConnect MarCom software interface - Image
The MarConnect MarCom Upd. 5.1 software interface provides data transfer directly into MS Excel (Version 97 and higher) via virtual interface box (MUX 50 format) in SPC software (professional) or text file or via keyboard code. Our video shows the work with the software. The measured values of...
Measuring station MarSurf LD 130 for measurement on tooth flanks  - Image
This measuring station enables the partly automated measurement of roughness (and contour) on tooth flanks. Measurements can be made on external teeth as well as on helical teeth. In order to set the starting point for the measurement, the measuring sequence is first performed by manually setting...
