The No. 528 Cutter Inspection Machine provides a means whereby a complete
inspection of blade angle and radial truth of Gleason spiral cutters may be
easily accomplished. With optional adapters, the machine can also be used to
check blade angle and radial truth on No. 114 CONIFLEX cutters as well as the
positive seating of segments on REVACYCLE cutters.
With the proximity-type gage, cutter blades can be checked for radial position
to within +.000010" (.2 microns) from the master blade. The cutter blade angle
can be checked to within a +.000020" (.4 microns) tolerance.
In the proximity gaging system, the electronic measuring unit measures the air
gap between the probe and the blade edge without contact taking place. More
accurate readings are not affected by the minute surface variations which
affect readings of a contact type probe.
This machine can handle 3 1/2" to 21" spiral cutters, 15" CONIFLEX cutters and
16" - 25" REVACYCLE cutters.
The measuring unit on the machine is a multi-channel, non-contact, capacitive
gaging system. Two (2) channels are dedicated to cutter blade measurements
while a third (axial) analog input helps to automate the checking runout of
the proof spot on the cutter body.
The convenience of a digital display provides a maximum resolution of 1
micro-inch (10 mil probe configuration) over a span of 10 mils. The meter
indicates probe gap digitally while a bar graph type of display provides an
analog indication proportional to the gap displacement.
Pushbuttons allow simple selections between the various operating modes.
A RS-232 output port provides interfaces to industry standard printers
providing hard copy print-outs of both axial peak to peak displacement and
cutter peak measurements all in engineering units.
This new 2-probe approach to measuring deviations in blade angle provides a
much faster, more reliable, pure electronic system than ever before.
