Hand-Held Thread Verification Unit

New Vista Corporation has developed a hand-held thread verification unit for the rapid inspection of internal or external threads in production parts. The TVU-HH powers a thread gage into and out of (or onto and off of) the part.

New Vista Corporation has developed a hand-held thread verification unit for the rapid inspection of internal or external threads in production parts. The TVU-HH powers a thread gage into and out of (or onto and off of) the part. The unit reverses automatically when the correct thread depth is reached. “Go” gaging, “no go” gaging, and combination gaging are all possible. Three models will inspect thread sizes M3 to M50.

The unit is designed for applications where there can be a variety of part types and thread sizes. Threads are checked successively using a variable speed motor, which is powered by a battery pack; most all thread inspections take no more than 3 seconds. Gage changes are accomplished by using a quick-change toolholder.

Flexible Gage Software Integrates with CNC Machine Tools

EMO 2017: Renishaw will exhibit its software for the Equator flexible gauge, which allows users to fully integrate the system with CNC machine tools, its contact scanning system for CNC machine tools, its on-machine and mobile apps which are designed to simplify the use of machine tool probing, an enhanced non-contact tool setter for machining centers, a multi-probe optical interface system, a surface finish probe for coordinate measuring machines, and software that enhances the functionality of Renishaw’s XM-60 multi-axis calibration system.
