Fritz Stepper GMBH & CO.KG is one of the technology leaders in the stamping sector and known worldwide for its introduction of modular stamping tool construction, it produces several billion contact parts per year. In the area of Quality assurance, the company has relied on Alicona, the provider of 3D optical measuring technology, for many years. Now Stepper is expanding its automation in the production environment to include Alicona measuring systems. These Measuring instruments operate automatically and are in use 24 hours a day 7 days a week.Read More
In the age of Industry 4.0 and Smart Manufacturing, flexible production strategies require intelligent interaction between humans and robots.
Alicona have developed collaborative systems created from universal robots, Alicona optical metrology technology and man to provide flexible quality assurance systems in production.
These measurement solutions can be used either manually or automatically for inspection of features on large objects. Systems can be built for quality assurance of round heavy components (illustrated here) with a weight up to 120Kg or horizontal systems for large flat objects on which detailed features need to be measured
Applications for this production-integrated measurement solution include the control of sharp edges/break out on aircraft engine turbine disks and to detect chipping along the edge and to verify minimum radii, essential for safety and reliability in the engine. The systems can also be used to measure “dings” or scratches at discreet locations on the surfaces of these objects.
Other applications include the measurement of mismatch on large turned and machined objects, quality assurance of circular saw blades or grinding wheels.Read More
