Accurate Measuring has a Bearing on Long Service Life

Precision hard turning is a key production process in the machine tool bearings unit at leading bearing manufacturer myonic GmbH. Here, using a probe solution from Blum-Novotest, key workpiece dimensions are now measured in-process, whilst the items are still clamped in place. This results in greater measuring accuracy, an improved manufacturing process and significantly reduced cycle times for the manufacturer.

The axial-radial-bearings being produced by myonic are measured by a Blum Novotest TC52 touch probe, which transmits the measured values to an infrared receiver inside an adjacent machine room. The TC52 measuring device is positioned on the horizontal hard-turning machine, (directly onto the tool turret) where it measures all the key geometric dimensions of the bearings being produced without them needing to leave the machine. The manufacturer produces a variety of bearing sizes on its machines, with bore sizes ranging from 50mm up to 650mm and weights varying from just a few kg up to larger units in excess of 650kg: all are measured as described by the Blum Novotest TC52.
