Kurt provides a variety of Piston Gage Stations that are designed and built to meet demanding production standards. The Piston Gage Stations measure small engine pistons for weedeaters and chain saws all the way up to massive pistons used within an electromotive train engine. The Kurt Piston Gage stations can be built as full automatic gages measuring a part every 5 seconds to bench-type manually loaded systems for measure production samples for SPC analysis.
Examples of Piston features measured include:
- Piston Height
- Piston Weight
- Crown Height
- Pin Bore Diameter
- Pin Bore Alignment
- Ring Grove Height and Diameter
- Other required features
The fully automated gage designs include integrated powered or gravity conveyance systems, walking beams or FANUC robot part handling. The part flow into and out of the gage is controlled by the gage station. For fully automated systems, 100% of the production is measured complete and discrepant parts are segregated from production flow.
Other features or capabilities can be added within the system such as part marking.
The KurtSPC Premium software provides real-time feedback to the line operator and can be programmed to provide closed loop feedback to the machine tools or stop the line in certain fault conditions. Data can be stored locally for review and/or exported directly on a network.
