APPLICATION: Automotive Engine Block
Kurt provides a variety of Engine Block Gage Stations that are designed and built to succeed in the rigorous automotive production environment. The Engine Block Gage Stations are usually gantry or robotically loaded stations that measure the engine block features in 30 seconds or less.
Examples of Engine Block features measured include:
- Engine Bore ID Dimensions
- Bore Stagger Dimensions
- Bore Positional Information
- Bore Depth Dimensions
- Other features as required
The fully automated gage designs include integrated gantry type load mechanisms or FANUC robot part handling. The part flow into and out of the gage is controlled by the gage station. In fully automated stations, 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 as required.
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.
Measurement of stagger and location dimensions to cast datums.
Four engine models measured incorporating automatic part size changeover, V6, V8, and V10.
Turnkey system utilized overhead gantry loading.
Kurt Check gaging computer with KurtSPC software provides real-time process control.
Cycle Time: 9 Seconds
