Block Guages make precision measurements of bores and cavaties a simple and reliable process. A range of springs are available to ensure that tip forces can be maintained with the Block Gauge mounted in any attitude.
Solartron''s wide variety of sensors are perfect for checking precise and complex measurements, such as components on a bicycle.
Specialists in the investment casting and machining of alloy metals, such as aluminium and titanium, which are primarily used for jet aircraft engines and airframes, have to measure the dimensions of the blades after surface grinding. After casting, the turbine blades undergo surface grinding to complete the collaboration of surfaces. The dimensions of the blade post-grind then need to be accurately measured as the initial proportions from the casting will have changed slightly. A precision process application is required to conform to final specification requirements (dimensional accuracy and surface finish).
