New Vista has developed a Thread Verification Unit for robot-guided inspection of internal threads in production parts. The all-electric unit checks thread size, depth and quality by powering a gage probe into and back out of a thread. GO gauging, NO GO gauging, and combination gauging are all possible. Three sizes inspect threads from 3mm to 50mm (#4 to 2”).
These servomotor-powered Thread Verification Units are designed for medium-to-long-cycle applications where there can be a variety of part types and thread sizes. Threads are checked successively; each thread inspection takes about one second. Gauge probe changes are accomplished by interfacing with a Tool Changing Station. The Thread Verification Unit complements New Vista’s existing line of Thread Verification products.
