Sterling Heights, MI (PRWEB) July 18, 2006
Sterling Heights, Mich.-based Eagle Thread Verifier, LLC, makers of an automated thread gauge system, announced today the introduction of a new higher torque spindle (24 inch pounds, model HT-100), for use in automotive, aircraft, and appliance suppliers and various manufacturing facilities. This next generation of the Eagle Thread Verifier (ETV) will enable the use of a flexible chuck, designed to check threaded holes not perpendicular to the surface such as the case with projection welded nuts and weld splatter which can occur in the threads.
With Eagle Thread Verifier’s expanded software within the controller, which operates the spindle, the system is able to precisely check the depth of a chamfer or a counterbore.
As with previous ETV models used for lower torque spindle work, the system checks the thread for pitch diameter (oversize / undersize), proper depth (minimum / maximum), missing holes, broken tap, proper depth of pipe tapped holes, and external threads. This gives ETV a larger range of information to stop production in seconds if a hole is not identified to the pre-established specification level. Checking for accurate threads saves countless man hours of sorting parts that are defective and repairing for final assembly.
“This new high torque ETV is going to give large-scale manufacturers the needed boost to improve the quality of their operations and eliminate missing holes or broken taps right there on the machine line,” stated Gordon Taylor, president of Eagle Thread Verifier. “Automotive suppliers in particular will quickly recoup their investment in Eagle Thread Verifier Systems.”
Even with the addition of the higher torque system to the line of thread verification systems, Eagle Thread Verifier still offers the flexibility to check the smaller threaded holes in delicate materials such as aluminum with the original lower torque spindle (9 inch pounds, model LT-50).
The ETV spindle can be added to an existing cell or Eagle Thread Verifier engineers will design and build a manual or automatic load “turnkey” system to fit the application.
