Upgrade to multi-sensor technology
Versatility in manufacturing means not only being able to satisfy the requirements of current projects, but also having the capability to meet the challenges of the future.
Multi-sensor measurement machines tick all the boxes for Industry 4.0. In comparison to single-sensor systems, when thinking about the value proposition, a multi-sensor option makes both productivity and cost savings predominant factors.
They allow inspection processes to remain accurate, repeatable and efficient for decades to come.
We know what you’re thinking: ‘That’s all well and good, but it also sounds expensive.’
In 2020, however, under a new OGP initiative, you could save up to £20,000 when trading in your legacy shadowgraph or co-ordinate measurement machine (CMM) for a state-of-the-art multi-sensor system.
So why should you? Here are some of the reasons that multi-sensor metrology triumphs over any other measurement method…
- Using two or more different sensors simultaneously, multi-sensor metrology machines acquire data points from part features much faster than a single-sensor system, with no measurement challenge too difficult to overcome.
- Having the capability to measure all dimensions in one set-up reduces costs and increases productivity – just compare this to carrying out fewer measurements using various different (and often manual) methods.
- By employing a single software package instead of multiple and sometimes unique software programmes, training expenditure is greatly reduced.
- A multi-sensor system allows for more space and capacity within the production environment by reducing the amount of individual machines needed per part feature.
- Data collection via a single system and its software avoids potential problems created by transferring data between machines with varying resolutions and calibrations.
- When programming part measurements from CAD, much of the work can be carried out offline and away from the multi-sensor metrology unit, allowing it to be used to support production.
- Full 3D software aids programming and system operation through real-time kinematic models of both the system and its sensors.
