A new, low-cost LED micrometer for their Model 1200 Crankshaft Gage that provides 3X higher accuracy and resolution than a laser micrometer is being introduced by ADCOLE Corporation of Marlborough, Massachusette, U.S.A.
The ADCOLE Model 1200 Camshaft Gage equipped with their new LED micrometer is capable of measuring fillet undercut depth before and after rolling at a 35 degree roll angle, journal straightness, and radial distance of journal shoulder to journal. Virtually insensitive to dust and dirt over a 4 mm focal range, it provides ±3 µm accuracy, ±1 µm repeatability, and 0.25 µm resolution with all outputs included in the standard summary report.
Available as an addition to or as a retrofit package for the field-proven ADCOLE Model 1200 Camshaft Gage, the LED micrometer fixture is attached to the follower carriage and Z-axis location is know by the standard gage for start/stop measurement. Featuring a menu-driven sequence builder utility for developing measurement sequences for new crankshafts and camshafts, this gage measures pin journal roundness, cylindricity, and straightness.
