Firearms manufacturers, especially rifle and shotgun manufacturers, can use an optical video measuring machine and a simple program to ensure chamfer concentricity, according to a white paper recently released by J.A. King. This new quick and easy method checks the centrality and depth of the chamfer on the crown end of a barrel without adding significant time or cost in manufacturing.
According to the paper, this new program helps reduce the scrap rate in rifle and shotgun manufacturing and is easily integrated into existing processes. It also requires little operator intervention, which helps reduce measurement variation and improves your Gage R&R.
J.A. King argues that an optical video measuring machine is ideal for chamfer concentricity analysis, as the measurements required are too fine for other types of measurement equipment. Video machines also offer several different methods for lighting which highlight features not easily seen otherwise, to allow their measurement.
