The Kurt Engineered Division is a combination of Kurt's Custom Engineered Workholding Group, its Electronics Division and its partnerships with robotic integrators. The Kurt Engineered Division provides a source for automated systems with solutions for automating machine tool manufacturing and gaging operations.

The Kurt Engineered System includes a Fanuc LR Mate 200iC six-axis robot interacting with a Kurt gage. The CTHDM6 tower is modified and plumbed for double acting hydraulics that will allow sensing positive movement when the workholding closes and opens on a part to be machined. The automated gage measures and records features on the machined part. Recorded data for process control, product traceability and process capability studies is captured and displayed in real-time.
