Surface Finish Measuring / Roundness and Cylindricity Tester
Surface Finish, Roundness, and Cylindricity measurements can be done with a variety of Profiling Instruments including: 1) Non-Conventional, Non-Contact; 2) Stylus Instruments; 3) Optical Instruments such as Interferometers and confocal microscopes; and 4) Scanning Microscopy Instruments such as SEM-Scanning Electron Microscope, STM-Scanning Tunneling Electron Microscope, and AFM-Atomic Force Microscope. Each of these instruments are negatively effected by vibrations.
Bilz has a variety of products to attenuate (reduce) the vibrations that typically effect the performance of surface finish measuring equipment and roundness and cylindricity testers. These products include: 1) Bilz LTH vibration isolated tables with or without a granite table top plate; 2) Bilz LTO vibration isolated tables with or without a Breadboard table top plate; 3) Bilz VITAP-Vibration Isolated Table-Top Platform; 4) BiAir® low natural frequency membrane air springs with self-leveling control system; 5) Bilz Faebi® rubber air springs with or without a self-leveling control system; 6) Bilz EPPC-Electro-Pneumatic Position Control system, and 7) Bilz Active Isolation System-AIS™.
Gear Measuring System, Gear Inspection System, Gear Checkers
New Gear Measuring Machine designs are continually improving their accuracy and speed of operation. Vibrations have a negative effect on the accuracy of these gear inspection systems. Most Gear Measuring Machine manufactures provide their customers with the maximum allowable vibrations that their equipment can withstand and still operate properly. Bilz Vibration Technology can provide a Vibration Site Survey that measures the actual floor vibrations. The Bilz survey includes a complete report that graphically shows you the measured vibration levels and compares them to the maximum allowable vibrations. Customers can easily see if a vibration isolation system is needed for the Gear Measuring Machine to operate within its specifications at the desired installation site.
The application of Gear Measuring Machine has been evolving from quality control to process control. In the past, Gear Measuring Machines have mainly been installed in the company’s Quality Control Lab. These labs were typically located in an area of the building that had the least amount of floor vibrations. However, in recent years, Gear Measuring Machines have been installed directly on the manufacturing floor, close to hobbers, grinders, broaching machines, CNC machining operations, and other machinery that generates vibrations. The manufacturing floor has much higher floor vibrations, which can require the Gear Measuring Machine to have a vibration isolation system to perform to specifications.
