International manufacturer-supplier relationship spurs innovation in laser gauging and axial vision inspection technology for critical fasteners

In an engine, seven types of screws out of approximately 70 are considered critical, that are crucial to achieving the engine’s specified design performance: bolts for the cylinder head, crankshaft, con rod, flywheel, and main bearing cap, as well as for the camshaft cap, camshaft sprocket and VCT.

Target: zero defects

As manufacturers look to lightweight materials for improved fuel economy, the associated fastening problems necessitate zero defects through 100% inspection. Del Williams reports

From automotive, trucking, and heavy equipment to aerospace, agriculture, and high-volume appliance/electronics, manufacturers looking to reduce weight (or for cost savings) have turned to lightweight materials like aluminum, plastics, zinc and magnesium. The associated fastening issues require zero defects from fastener manufacturers, as production speed and quality depends on them.

While fastener manufacturers have long relied on sorting to remove defects before they enter production, the fact is that cold heading, moving and inscribing metal with threads is not entire………. read more here!

GI ships out 3 more LaserLabs…

Announcing: General Inspection ships out 3 LaserLabTMs to one of the world’s largest fastener manufactures

Gi has shipped out three new LaserLabTMs to one of the world’s laserlab150largest fastener manufactures. Two LaserLabs will go to Illinois and one will be shipped to the manufactures Mexico plant. Each LaserLab features the patented eight (8) laser array, centering device, top tooling and magnetic stage. These features combined ensure the parts does not move, nor need to be rotated for a complete 360o dimensional inspection.

In the few seconds it takes to scan a part, all dimensions, including lengths, diameters, radii, angles, and external thread measurements are displayed, accurate to less than a few microns. Out of tolerance features are highlighted in red. A complete roster of all dimensions is displayed for entry into an excel spreadsheet. After tolerances are assigned with the appropriate part number, they can be stored in memory for quick re-call when that part is to be inspected again.

The manufactures intends to place all three of these LaserLabTM units into their quality labs for first piece inspection, final audits and Ppap’s.
