Kurt provides a variety of brake rotor gage stations that are designed and built to meet the demanding standards of automotive production. The Kurt Rotor Gage stations can be built as full automatic gages measuring a part every 12 seconds to bench-type manually loaded systems for measure production samples for SPC analysis. Tolerances for the rotor surface are often tightly controlled to 6 to 10 microns.
Examples of Rotor brake features measured include:
- Rotor Thickness
- Brake surface runout (inboard and outboard surfaces)
- Hat ID
- Brake surface Flatness
- Brake surfaces parallelism
- Bolt hole ID
- Axle hole ID
- Crack detection (eddy current)
- 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. In fulluy automated gage 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 such as part blow-offs and 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.
