ZEISS CMM – Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM)
The ZEISS CMM provides ultimate dimensional information directly on the production line. The temperature control on our shop floor makes it possible for the ZEISS CMM to perform within the actual production line through the facility’s tightly controlled atmospheric pressure and climate. This elite machine offers maximum efficiency when it comes to in-production waiting times, but quality control remains our top priority. Most importantly, the ZEISS CMM establishes reliable reproducibility through top-of-the-line software and technology, erasing any uncertainty or fluctuations as a result of outdated manual measuring techniques.
Designed to achieve exceptional finish quality, the Sunnen Hone SH-4000 is the next generation of power-stroke honing machines. With 45 percent fewer parts and greater reliability than its mechanical predecessors, the SH-4000 introduces patent-pending digital-servo tool feed and cutting pressure control for consistent, predictable performance with micron tolerances. By controlling parallelism and concentricity leading up to the final honing operation, less demand is placed on the honing operation, giving Oliver the ability to maintain optimum surface finish characteristics. Less stock removal, combined with improved parallelism and concentricity reduces the need for adjustments, ultimately leading to better tooling life throughout the honing process.
Working with the tightest of tolerances, air gauging as a measurement method is critical to Oliver’s accurate high volume manufacturing process. Parallelism and concentricity implemented prior to the hone operation opens up the potential for extremely consistent bores for the gauging of the part. With only .002 travel and a measurement tolerance of .00002, our gauges offer the ability to control the part and therefore, give us authority over the entire gauging process. Lastly, we run the air through a dryer and two micron filters to generate consistent dry air for every single measurement. When measuring rod diameters down to the most extremely precise points, air gauges are not only one of the most elite choices, but they also take out any chance of a flawed or limited mechanical instrument entirely.
