Video: OGP launches new TurnCheck series-14 shaft measurement system

07 October 2022

Optical Gaging Products (OGP), a manufacturer of optical and precision multisensor metrology systems for industrial quality control, has added the new TurnCheck series-14 to its family of TurnCheck Shaft Measurement Systems. This addition increases the range of TurnCheck systems to handle parts up to 140 mm in diameter and 1,000 mm in length.

TurnCheck systems are precision optical instruments that measure shafts, cylinders and other turned, groundSource: OGPSource: OGP or extruded parts in the most demanding shop floor environments. The fully telecentric large field of view optics combined with highly collimated light at a constant wavelength results in a crisp, uniformly magnified image with no edge effects or exclusion zones. TurnCheck systems scan and measure all points and features automatically, handling the full range of dimensions and tolerances found on shafts and cylinders.

Alex Garvey, OGP senior applications engineer, remarked, “TurnCheck systems offer advantages in speed, operator ease of use, and high accuracy edge detection. Any operator can quickly load a part into the tailstock with just one hand. Automatic scans offer data that can be reviewed in an instant. The advanced optics and rugged construction make TurnCheck a key element of shop-floor process control.”
