Four-axis gauge improves extrusion precision, speed


NDC Technologies (Dayton, OH) will introduce the Beta LaserMike AccuScan 6012 four-axis diameter and ovality gauge at NPE 2015. Industry's first four-axis gauge for measuring products up to 12 mm, the device enables extruders of medical tubing and other advanced products to measure diameter and ovality more accurately than would be possible using two- and three-axis gauges.

Manufacturers of medical tubing, high-performance cables, and other extruded products typically have relied on two- and three-axis diameter and ovality gauges for on- and offline measurements. Increased production line speeds combined with rotation and vibration issues have created new obstacles to meeting rigorous design and quality specifications.
