PRODUCTS GLEASON 300GMSL MULTI-SENSOR INSPECTION MACHINE Gleason Corporation introduces its latest innovation in gear inspection technology with the 300GMSL Multi-Sensor Inspection Machine; providing the capabilities of four instruments on one platform. Designed for manufacturers of automotive, aircraft and other like-sized gears, the 300GMSL offers a single, compact, reliable and easy-to operate inspection solution to apply the most desirable gear measurement and analysis methods for both R&D and production applications. An extremely versatile platform, the 300GMSL is capable of performing tactile probing to support traditional gear feature data collection on spur and helical gears, spiral and straight bevel gears up to 300mm in diameter. In addition, the platform supports non-contact, laser, full form scanning for a wide range of workpieces to support gear development efforts where large amounts of data need to be collected faster than possible with conventional tactile probing. Optional features include surface finish measurement and Barkhausen Noise Analysis; to further improve throughput while reducing cost of ownership and floor space requirements. The integration of advanced technology such as laser scanning expands the functionality and application range of this platform. The advanced laser scanning probe delivers faster data collection speeds than conventional probing methods with comparable accuracy; making the 300GMSL a perfect solution for research and development applications such as rapid prototyping and reverse engineering. The 300GMSL is also well suited for normal production operations requiring high-speed topography inspection as well as increased non-gear inspection capabilities and the ability to inspect soft, compliant materials such as plastic gears. The optional Advanced Operator Interface puts a number of powerful tools right at the operator’s fingertips including video telephony, note pad and voice mail messaging capability along with QR/bar code reading. The user-friendly, fully Windows® compatible GAMA™ application software suite provides users a highly intuitive interface with simple input screens for programming workpiece data. GLEASON CORPORATION CALBRECHT@GLEASON.COM | WWW.GLEASON.COM/300GMSL MAHR FEDERAL MARSOLUTIONS RPM GAGE The MarSolutions team at Mahr Federal has developed a customized RPM gage for the dynamic measurement of cylindrical parts such as commutator shafts, turbocharger turbine shafts, and other precision shafts in electric motors. The gage incorporates precision Vees and adjustable end-stops to support the shaft and define its axial position, and a motion belt to rotate the shaft at up to 20 RPM. The MarSolutions group was recently established to augment custom gage development directly with customers in response to increased demand for custom gaging solutions for dimensional metrology. Operating worldwide from a number of facilities, the MarSolutions Engineered Metrology Team will help customers analyze the gaging requirements of their application, then design and build a customized gaging solution to meet those requirements. The MarSolutions Commutator Gage can be used in the lab or on the shop floor to measure multiple dimensional parameters, including diameter, roundness, runout, segment gap, and segment height to height and profile. The gage can be dedicated for a specific shaft size or made adjustable by the user to measure shaft lengths from 130 to 300 mm, shaft diameters from 4 to 20 mm, and winding diameters from 25 to 80 mm. A DC motor drives the motion belt from 2 to 20 RPM while the gaging computer collects data for analysis. The user customizable software allows results to be displayed as bar graphs, polar graphs, or XY graphs with measuring values or mean values. The D1200X software interface optimizes gage use and allows quick, easy creation of customized forms and programs, and provides integrated functions for measuring system analysis, repeatability and reproducibility. SPC functions allow analysis of X/S and X/R, Pareto and histograms, and data can be exported in QDAS, QUASAR, ASCII and EXCEL formats. As a customized design, the MarSolutions RPM measuring gage can easily be adapted for other part dimensions and/or shaft designs. MAHR FEDERAL INC. (800) 343-2050 MKT.NAFTA@MAHR.COM WWW.MAHR.COM MICRONOR FOTEMP1-OEMMNT FIBER OPTIC TEMPERATURE SENSOR Micronor (Camarillo, CA) and Optocon AG (Dresden, Germany) have collaborated to create the FOTEMP1-OEM-MNT; a low cost, small form factor, single channel signal conditioner that seamlessly integrates Fiber Optic Temperature Sensing into any industrial control system, medical instrumentation or other OEM design. The standard FOTEMP1-OEM-MNT controller features include a calibrated measurement range of -40°C to +300°C and built-in USB, RS232 and SPI interfaces. The product operates in conjunction with all TS Series GaAs Fiber Optic Temperature Sensors to provide a discrete temperature monitoring solution that can operate accurately and reliably in challenging environments where electronics- based temperature sensors (thermocouples, RTDs) cannot function. The fiber optic sensor’s entirely non-metallic, passive optical design provides immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI), radio frequency interference (RFI), microwaves, high voltage, extreme magnetic fields, radiation, chemicals, and explosive atmospheres. In these environments, GaAs fiber optic temperature sensors enable new and unprecedented solutions impossible for electronic sensors. Typical applications include monitoring temperature inside high voltage transformers and switchgear, MR imaging, semiconductor manufacturing, petrochemical plants, as well as microwave ovens and reactors used in food industry, material processing and bioengineering. The use of low loss optical fiber allows interference-free, remote temperature monitoring up to 2000 meters. Such distances are characteristic of mines, tank farms and downhole applications. The temperature sensor’s operation is based on the inherent temperature dependency of the bandgap of the Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) semiconductor crystal. A continuous broadband light source is coupled into the sensor’s large core 200μm optical fiber which illuminates a Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) crystal mounted on the sensor’s fiber tip. GaAs absorbs wavelengths below its bandgap and the sensor reflects the wavelengths above. The transition region between the reflected and transmitted spectrum, i.e. the bandgap spectral position, corresponds to absolute temperature. The FOTEMP1-OEM-MNT is a compact OEM interface solution with sophisticated functionality. The unit sources the broadband light to the GaAs sensor and an internal optical spectrum analyzer evaluates the reflected optical signal to determine the corresponding absolute temperature. This sensing and interrogation method allows for lower cost, greater accuracy (±0.2ºC), widest measurement range (-200°C to +300°C), and faster response compared to other fiber optic sensor techniques, including fluorescence decay and fiber Bragg gratings. MICRONOR INC. (805) 389-6600 | DENNIS@MICRONOR.COM OSI OPTOELECTRONICS ANNULAR QUADRANT BACKSCATTER DETECTORS OSI Optoelectronics (OSIO), an OSI Systems Company, introduces Annular Quadrant Silicon Photodiodes. The new devices operate between 350 nm to 1100 nm and are used for backscatter reflectivity measurements. The new silicon (Si) quadrant detector features an annular package design and includes a 200 μm laser-cut hole on the chip and the header that enables a fiber to be coupled from the back of the detector. This ensures that the detector sensing area is always normal to the direction of the light, reducing the need for angular compensation during backscatter measurements. Available in TO-5 and TO-8 metal packages, the active area on each element is 1.6 mm2 and 19.6 mm2 respectively. The element gap between the segments is ~0.10 mm. The spectral range is from 190 nm (min.) to 1100 nm (max.) with a typical peak wavelength of 980 nm. With responsivity at 790 nm, the typical A/W is 0.52. OSI Optoelectonics’ new backscatter detector for reflectivity measurements operates between -20 °C and +60 °C. Storage temperatures range from -20 °C to +80 °C. OSI OPTOELECTRONICS, INC.
